Fiat Chrysler Teams Up With Amazon To Sell Cars Online

I don’t understand why car manufacturers don’t already provide similar service off their official websites. If I’m reading this right, you would still have to finalize things with a dealerآ—so why are manufacturers relying on a third party to begin "selling" vehicles online?

Initially only Italian buyers will be able to purchase their cars with a simple click online and the offers on will be limited to three models - the 500, the Panda and the 500L. FCA said the choice was deliberate because the Panda is Italy's biggest selling car, while buyers of the 500 and its larger 500L version embody the young and adventurous nature this initiative is trying to appeal to. "The time has arrived to give consumers a new, more efficient and transparent way to choose a new vehicle," Gianluca Italia, responsible for Fiat Chrysler in Italy, said during an online press conference.
