And mind you, they’re not planning to auction off used cars only.

General Motors Corp. has said that they plan to experiment with auctioning their news cars on eBay and if you’ve been living in a rock for at least the last decade, eBay is an online shopping and auction site that millions that probably millions of people go to everyday J.

It won’t be available for the whole world though. Fritz Henderson, GM CEO has said that consumers in California can now bid on the vehicles as they would in a normal eBay auction, or even choose to “Buy it Now”. The dealers however, will still be the ones to distribute the cars.

According to GM spokesman John McDonald, this partnership with eBay will start in the “next couple of weeks.”

eBay Motors vice president Rob Chesney has said in a statement that there are still no finalized plans with General Motors but they are “excited about a potential new adventure that supports GM’s dealers by expanding on how they already reach consumers through new approaches.”
