Buy Your FCA Car on Amazon

Click on the vehicle and options you want using Amazon Prime and have it delivered in 2 days free shipping.

Not really, but maybe in the future. FCA is selling the 500, the Panda and the 500L in Italy on Amazon up to a third cheaper than available elsewhere.

I wish mine was delivered in a giant cardboard box. Never touched by the dealer or anyone. Would be sweet.


But I wonder about them shipping a Note that big. Hopefully they don't make a Nissan Note 7 that bursts into flames unexpectedly.

It'll never happen. Each time someone has tried taking the dealership out of the equation they have failed.

Actually it would depend on State Laws in the USA. Many require a physical dealer outlet.
That is the issue , if I remember correctly, that Tesla had when they sold on-line at the start.
Now I do not know how or if any reaction FCA dealers would have to sales through Amazon. How State laws would comingle the two.
I would imagine that the dealers have exclussive rights to sales of branded vehicles. Any attempt by FCA to sell through Amazon, unless maybe the dealer gets the delivery and a cut in the process, would lead to years in the court system. Many dealers have a huge investment in their sales dept, including inventory.

But again I believe that internet sales is the future. You can shop dealer stock on hand for the whole country if you want. You can cut a deal at say a dealer 300 miles away for exactly the vehicle you want and the price you want. I have come to believe that the internet is the great equalizer both in availability of what you want and price.
Times are changing and the smart dealers will get onboard. Some all ready have aggressive internet sales depts and see whats happening.
