GM Drivers Can Now Order a Starbucks From Their Car's Touchscreen

The service is launching with a variety of partner companies, including: GM, Starbucks, Dunkin' Donuts, Wingstop, TGI Friday's, Shell, ExxonMobil, Priceline.com, Parkopedia, Applebee's, IHOP, and delivery.com. Customers can "expect to see more service promotions coming through the platform", Chamorro said. Marketplace is being added to all cars even if the owner doesn't have a paid in-car Wi-Fi data subscription, TechCrunch reported. What this means, in practical terms, is that drivers of select Chevrolet, Buick, GMC, and Cadillac vehicles will be able to use Marketplace to order coffee or food, make reservations for dinner and at hotels, locate the nearest gas stations, and save money on services. "We have an opportunity to make every trip more productive and give our customers time back".

On the same day General Motors announced it will equip newer-model cars with its in-dash Marketplace e-commerce app, a prominent safety group was shooting it down. Payment for items such as food and drink is made through accounts owners have previously set up with popular merchants on the platform.

"Marketplace gives merchants the ability to more safely engage with drivers and passengers in a meaningful way that provides true value for our customers", Chamorro added.

The automaker will roll out the new feature on millions of existing 2017 and 2018 model-year vehicles starting Tuesday. It's created to be a safer alternative to using the phonewhile driving - though it does not have voice-command capability - by tapping into third-party merchants like the Starbucks' iPhone app.

GM said Marketplace's physical interface was created to minimize manual interactions, "helping drivers keep their eyes on the road and their hands on the wheel".

The app also lets drivers know about discounts on GM parts and accessories.

Marketplace uses machine learning combined with real-time data to produce its personalized experiences.

Chamorro said Marketplace will eventually feature a digital wallet, allowing for drivers to pay for goods within the app.
