Few locations are as perfect as the Automotive Capital of the World when it comes to the grand opening of Carvana’s newest Car Vending Machine! Behold, as Detroit is the proud home of our sparkling eight-story Car Vending Machine, which is sure to add serious horsepower to the new way to buy a car for over 4.2 million residents of the Motor City.
Like many of the other Car Vending Machines that Carvana has launched in the past, customers at the Detroit Car Vending Machine can expect to see the same kind of striking design and functionality that was established as the new blueprint beginning with the launch of our Nashville Car Vending Machine in November 2015. However, our new Detroit Car Vending Machine is a 4.0 design, which means it features two delivery bays and a newly designed coin receptacle and customer waiting area that enables visitors to safely stand inside the tower and watch as their vehicle descends from the tower to ground level.
To pick-up a purchased vehicle at the Detroit Car Vending Machine, the customer simply drops their custom coin into the Car Vending Machine’s coin slot, which then illuminates the coin receptacle and activates the automated vehicle delivery system. With the customer looking on, the Car Vending Machine then retrieves the vehicle from the Tower and brings it directly to a delivery bay. Once in the bay, the customer is invited to take possession of their car, where they will have seven days to drive the car around town before ultimately deciding if the vehicle is right for them.
The wait for Michigan’s first Carvana Car Vending Machine is officially over, as Detroit now serves as our 26th Car Vending Machine location to date – joining Nashville, San Antonio, Houston, Austin, Dallas, Raleigh, Jacksonville, Tampa, Charlotte, Washington, D.C., Orlando, Tempe, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Kansas City, Greensboro, Westminster (L.A.), Ontario (L.A.), Oklahoma City, Memphis, Miami, and Louisville.
At the end of the day, our mission is to provide Carvana customers with a new way to buy a car that is as unique as it is simple. And with our growing number of Car Vending Machine locations, we believe we’re able to do just that, offering customers an improved car buying experience that runs in sharp contrast to the pitfalls associated with the traditional car buying process.
It goes without saying that we’re excited to make Detroit the newest home to our growing line of signature Car Vending Machines, and we cannot wait to see it serve Carvana customers for generations to come!
