The Drive-Thru May See Its Grave Because Of Volvo's New Technology

Technology

Saving a trip kind of defeats the purpose of a car, but it's still cool.

It’s the holiday season, and for those who would like to spend time acquiring more objects instead of being thankful for what you already have, Volvo now has a new way for you to do both. Usually, taking delivery of goods that you ordered means waiting for your dog to bark at the UPS man approaching the door. But thanks to Volvo’s new in-car delivery program, you can save yourself from stampedes at the shopping mall. Currently, the program is only offered to Volvo On Call subscribers in Gothenburg, Sweden, but it will soon be expanded to other cities and countries.

Buyers shopping at various online stores who are partnered with Volvo will need only to select “Volvo In Car” as the delivery option. A deliveryman with a one-time access key to the Volvo then brings the goods, which can be food, drinks, and Christmas gifts, to the car. This can be very useful for habitually late Volvo drivers who need to have Christmas dinner or a last-minute gift in the car ready to go to the relative’s house. No mention on if bored drivers can cheat the system and have alcoholic beverages and snacks delivered to them while they are stuck in Christmas traffic. With Volvo trying to launch itself into the autonomous driving game, this could turn out to be a fun future for holiday goers.
