Amazon gets more involved with auto industry via new site


Amazon isn’t selling cars — at least not yet anyway — but it has launched a site where consumers can research and compare cars and read reviews.

Called Amazon Vehicles, the new site is designed as a research destination for customers shopping for vehicles, parts, and accessories

It includes detailed specifications, photos and reviews for an array of car models, both new and classic, ranging from Tesla Motors' 2014 Model S to the 1965 Ford Mustang.

It also features a question and answer section where customers can ask about cars and receive answers directly from other car owners.

Amazon has sold car parts and accessories for some time. Amazon Vehicles is an extension of the Amazon Automotive store, which enables customers to add information about their current car to the Amazon Garage for shopping parts and accessories designed specifically for their vehicle.

“Our goal is to support customers during one of the most important, research-intensive purchases in their lives by helping them make informed decisions every step of the way,” said Adam Goetsch, director of automotive at “Amazon Vehicles is a great resource for customers who are interested in car information or looking for a broad selection of parts and accessories – all enhanced by the ability to tap into the knowledge, opinions, and experiences of other car owners within the Amazon customer community.”

As to whether Amazon intends to sell cars in the future, an Amazon spokeswoman responded to "We have nothing more to share at this time."
