General Motors, the biggest USA carmaker with total sales of 2.7 million vehicles so far this year, is equipping newer cars with commerce technology to let drivers order food, find gas stations or reserve hotel rooms by tapping a touchscreen on their dashboards.
General Motors rolled out a new feature that will put a Marketplace and the ability to order a cup of coffee while on the way to work on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
GM Director of Global Digital Experience & Connected Vehicles John McFarland explained why the carmaker chose to build an in-vehicle e-commerce platform and he said, "We believe in doing everything we can to make it available while making it safe while in motion". "Our goal is to utilize partnerships like this to build Marketplace into the most intuitive and comprehensive in-vehicle commerce platform", said Brian Hoglund, Director, Commercial Experience GCCX. The technology will be installed in about 1.9 million models manufactured in 2017, and 4 million models across Chevrolet, GMC, Buick, and Cadillac brands in the U.S.by the end of 2018. Drivers will not need to purchase a data plan to receive the update.
GM said Marketplace's physical interface was created to minimize manual interactions, "helping drivers keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel".
