Alibaba opens China’s first ‘car vending machine’

Chinese e-commerce giant Alibaba Group and US carmaker Ford have opened a ‘car vending machine’ in China’s southern city of Guangzhou.

The five-story building houses up to 42 cars of various models, including the Ford Explorer SUV and the Mustang. It allows prospective buyers to see, test drive and purchase the vehicles via Alibaba’s online shopping platform Tmall.

The vending machine will be open to the public from April 23 and potential buyers will be given a three-day test drive before they have to commit to any purchase.
