Buying a car has never been so easy.
This retail giant is building a giant vending machine to sell cars
Retail giant Alibaba has inked a deal to market electric vehicles built by Ford in China. The company plans to use a massive vending machine in order to facilitate sales.
Customers will scan a car that they’re interested in using the Taobao shopping app developed by Alibaba. They can then pick a color, enter some basic information and take an all-important selfie.
Said selfie will be used to identify the individual when they head over to the unmanned vending machine. Facial recognition technology is used to match the person with their order, and the corresponding vehicle is taken out of storage.
