This time around it is in Louisville, is eight stories tall, and has a 27-vehicle capacity, says the company. This is Carvana’s 25th. such car vending machine in the U.S.

How does a car vending machine work? Carvana says, customers can select a day and time by appointment. At the machine, they will meet a customer advocate; and receive a Carvana coin to activate the automated vending process. All vehicles come with a seven-day return policy, says Carvana.
