Nissan Delivers A Versa Note In Massive Amazon Box

What's the largest thing Amazon.com will ship to your address? How about a brand-new car.

Reddit users have been following the big box story since Monday, when a user posted a picture of a huge Amazon box on a flatbed truck on a street in Madison, Wis. It was a mystery, until another user pointed out the recent partnership between Amazon and Nissan.

Adweek reported Nissan confirmed the package was one of their Versa Notes being delivered inside the enormous box with the trademark Amazon smile. Nissan had planned to create a video of the delivery, but eagle-eyed redditors broke the story before Nissan had a chance.

Versa Notes won't be delivered like this in the future, this was a one-time deal for a single lucky car shopper. Still, the car's unusual shipping method has got people talking the way only a good publicity stunt can.

      Buying a Foreign auto is just about the most un-American thing a consumer can do.

      As per standard shipping procedures the car only took up 1/10th the size of the box. The bubble wrap was impressive with air pockets the size of a small child.

      That's one hell of a delivery.

      Ah!!! HOW CUTE! :D I love it. I love some of the things Nissan does in our community locally. They give a lot to the Food Bank, and they even have special financing deal to people who suffered unemployment and poverty during our economic crisis. I'm really sold on their company here in the States. People will say that it's just a publicity stunt, but what better way to get publicity than by doing good for the community?

      The boxes always last longer than the products that come in them. If not, UPS could not deliver the boxes without the their contents being completely destroyed.

      In 10 years, the box will be worth way more than the car.

        But where would they put it where some kid won't turn it into a fort complete with doors and windows cut out?

      I don't think I would want my new car to come in a box. No test drive.

        yeah, but it was a gift, and you don't look a gift horse in the mouth.
