Carvana is an online dealership based in Atlanta, Georgia. It's claim to fame is that it allows customers to shop for cars online, secure loans online, even schedule test drives online. And when it comes time to pay up, that's often done entirely online, too.
But that wasn't forward-thinking enough for Carvana. They wanted to make the auto shopping process still faster and more high-tech. So they borrowed an idea from their neighbors at Coca-Cola and created an auto vending machine.
According to Carvana, customers set up a test drive or purchase a vehicle online before visiting the vending machine, which is located in West Midtown:
The structure provides a full digitally interactive experience complete with floor-to-ceiling windows, custom LED lighting, flat screen TV's and interactive keypads that identify customers based on unique buyer credentials provided by Carvana after the purchase has been completed. With around-the-clock pick up availability, vehicles purchased on Carvana.com will be available for test drive and pick up as early as 24-hours.
