We've been following the Domino's delivery car project since 2012 when it was just a design contest. So we were quite excited when we people told us they saw one on the street yesterday.
At it's Ann Arbor, Michigan world headquarters, Domino's introduces its new DXP Delivery Car. The CEO of the company insists that it's not a gimmick, not the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile. He's wrong, it's the coolest gimmick of all time, and it just made us order some extra cheese and dipping sauce.

The DXP is essentially a heavily modified version of the 2015 Chevy Spark with a 1.2-liter engine, and it will enter service this week. The coolest feature is that, as a substitute for the traditional insulated carry bag, the car features an oven mounted instead of the left rear door. While it doesn't bake the food on the go, it will keep things toasty enough for you to enjoy a delicious dinner served at 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

Knowing that delicious treats are inside, you might be tempted to rob the delivery car. However, the oven is connected to the immobilizer key and locks automatically. The passenger seat has been deleted to make room for a custom storage solution for dipping sauces, drinks or napkins. As for the back seats, they are gone too, making room for up to 80 pizzas. Didn't know those subcompacts were so big inside, right?

Domino's collaborated on this project with two deeply respected companies from the carmaking business: Local Motors and Roush Industries. One hundred cars are on their way to 25 cities, including Boston, Detroit, San Diego and Seatle.

“We love to see fleets use our vehicles in new and innovative ways,” said Ed Peper, U.S. vice president, General Motors Fleet. “This partnership between Chevrolet and Domino’s demonstrates the versatility, technology, and performance our vehicles can deliver - in a literal sense in this case - to fleets across America.”
