Domino’s Pizza debuted its new DXP (delivery expert) car in Washington State this week. The Puget Sound region is one of 25 markets to have the cars nationwide. The goal of the car is less stops and more deliveries.
The DXP isn’t the run-of-the-mill delivery car. It comes with a warming oven, set to 140 degrees, on board to keep the pizzas warm while out on delivery. That means the driver can also carry more pizzas and cut down on delivery trips. The car holds up to 80 pizzas.
The car fits one person, with the rest being used as customized space to store napkins, sauces, and drinks. The interior design helps stabilize pizza. Lights on the side of the car help drivers spot puddles and curbs to keep the ride smooth for the pizza.
For drivers, it offers the chance to personalize their car with custom decals, similar to the call sign on a plane.
According to the car’s website, there are 97 DXP cars on the road in the United States. The cars were designed through a five-stage crowdsource competition put on by Local Motors. The DXP cars are Chevrolet Sparks.
