In China, new car buyers may get their new car keys from drones, rather than human workers — at least as part of Geely’s new policy,media reported. Geely, China’s biggest carmaker, has highlighted its new coronavirus protection measures to protect car buyers from infection.
For now, Geely has expanded its contactless delivery system to deliver new cars to car buyers’ homes or work points. The new delivery system will allow companies to deliver car keys to car buyers via drones that can fly directly to someone’s door or balcony. There, the new owner will receive a small bag with the car keys, which shows no trace of any one’s contact.
The carmaker said it sold 10,000 cars online in February. The company then asks the dealer to complete these orders, which are responsible for managing the order and preparing for the door. But will a similar approach work in the United States? — Probably not, at least not now.
