Dublin, April 25, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – The “Strategic Analysis of Amazon’s Growing Mobility Footprint” Report added to ResearchAndMarkets.com an offer.

Amazon, the e-commerce giant, has made steady strides in the auto industry and greater mobility scene over the past decade. The company is slowly building relevant capabilities using a focused approach, giving it a foothold across CASE automotive and retail routes.

When it comes to connected vehicles, Amazon’s primary offering is Amazon Web Services, which offers a full suite of services to car companies across three main cloud computing models, namely platform as a service, infrastructure as a service, and software as a service. This provides car companies with various services, including data warehousing, data computing, data analytics, networking, enterprise solutions, data security, and developer tools.

The services are offered in a pay-as-you-go pricing model, giving customers the flexibility to choose the most requested services. Another offering in the connected vehicle space is Amazon’s Alexa voice assistant. As of 2020, there are about 100,000 Alexa skills, of which 161 are related to connected cars. It plans to develop and release skills for many of the HMI’s in-vehicle features such as the center stack, instrument cluster, HUD and RSE system in the future.

In the world of autonomy, Amazon is focused on investments and acquisitions primarily aimed at automating each stage of its realization in the future. Analysis of the company’s investments and acquisitions indicates that it would like to automate last mile, middle mile and warehouse operations around the world.

In terms of autonomous passenger transportation, the only significant step the company has made is the acquisition of Zoox, a US-based company that is building Robotaxy. This vehicle could be used to enable autonomous passenger transportation services in the future. Amazon is also making significant forays into the food delivery space in the last mile. The company has invested in Deliveroo in the UK, and in 2020, it launched Amazon Food delivery service in India.

Amazon has set a goal to achieve 100% carbon neutrality in its operations by 2040 and has begun working towards that goal. The company is making investments and entering into partnerships that will help electrify its logistics fleets across the middle and last mile. Amazon has made a significant investment in Rivian, where it owns 20% of the electric truck manufacturer.

Through partnerships with local charging station providers, it has begun setting up charging stations within its charging centers in the United States and Europe to support its electric vehicle fleets. Amazon has also invested in companies with capabilities in areas such as battery management systems and battery recycling.

For auto retail, Amazon offers Garage that helps users register their vehicles and find the most suitable parts they need. Amazon Vehicles is a vehicle database that helps customers in vehicle purchase research with rich information about vehicle specifications, reviews, photos and videos.

Amazon Home Services allows users to find technicians and schedule repairs and installations from the comfort of their home. The company also sells major automotive components and accessories through private label. In addition, Amazon launched a car rental service in Spain and a car rental service in the United Arab Emirates.
