Dreading Black Friday? Have your shopping delivered to your car

Volvo has teamed up with a number of Swedish companies to deliver Christmas toys, gifts, food and drinks to its cars.

The manufacturer says its in-car delivery will eradicate the more unpleasant aspects of Christmas shopping, such as battling busy city centres and missing important deliveries.

The service uses a digital key, which is used to gain one-time access to your Volvo. Owners simply order the goods online, receive a notification that the goods have been delivered and then just drive home with them.

Volvo’s senior vice president for marketing, sales and service, Björn Annwall, said: “Christmas is fun – but let’s be honest, it is also a busy time for most families. This service simply makes shopping easier.

“Volvo In-car Delivery provides concrete proof that connected car technologies can be used to save people time and make their lives easier.”

Although currently only available in Sweden, Volvo says its in-car delivery service will be trialled elsewhere in Europe in the future.
