It stands eight stories tall and holds up to 27 vehicles. The patented coin-operated, all-glass structure is Carvana’s newest car vending machine.
Located in Chicago, the vending machine provides what Carvana describes as a “memorable pick-up experience” for customers who purchase their vehicles on Carvana.com. The company debuted the newest machine on Wednesday.
In addition, also on Wednesday, Carvana launched as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in three nearby markets: Rockford, Ill., and Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo, Mich.
Carvana said new design elements at the Chicago location create what it says is an “even more immersive experience” for customers, who can view the vending process of their purchased vehicle from various new angles.
Chicago is the first city in Illinois to debut a car vending machine, and it is the 17th in the United States. Additional cities with car vending machines are located in Texas, Tennessee, Florida, North Carolina, Maryland, Arizona, Ohio, Indiana and Pennsylvania.
With Wednesday’s market launches, Carvana now offers as-soon-as-next-day vehicle delivery in 118 U.S. cities.
The Chicago vending machine is located at 720 Enterprise Drive in Oak Brook and is open from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. central time Monday through Saturday.
“We launched in the Chicagoland area less than two years ago,” Carvana founder and chief executive officer Ernie Garcia said in a news release. “We’re proud to see customers enjoy our new way to buy a car and looking forward to making car buying even more fun and exciting with our newest car vending machine. Additionally, offering as-soon-as-next-day delivery to customers in Rockford, Ann Arbor and Kalamazoo today showcases our commitment to bringing easy, transparent car buying to even more customers in the Midwest.”
