Vroom America, the largest direct online car merchant, recently launched what they call the first-ever virtual reality showroom for cars. The showroom currently works with the HTC Vive headset which allows users to virtually test drive and view 15 different car models in 360-degrees, before actually seeing the car in person.
Vroom plans to open showrooms at its Texas offices in Grand Prairie and Houston, as well as in malls around the country including Austin and Phoenix. Customers will have the opportunity to virtually see about 15 card models ranging in price from $25,000 to $60,000.
In addition to hearing the exact engine sounds of the models, showroom visitors can experience how the blind spot mirrors work, view close-up and far away views of the car and inspect the features inside each of the vehicles. Vroom also plans to use 3D effects to allow clients to see their cars in a variety of colors and packages.
While other automakers have the capability to virtually build their vehicles, Vroom believes one of their strongest assets is their ability to compare and view different cars all in one place.
