Customers at the Whole Foods Market in Westford, Massachusetts will be the first to test the new version. Previously, Dash carts were only available at Amazon Fresh grocery stores, which are currently only available at six states.

In the coming months, the new carts will roll out to additional Whole Foods Market and Amazon Fresh stores in the US, giving more shoppers the convenience of shopping.

Not only has the Amazon team designed a lighter cart, it also has more capacity to carry four bags of groceries instead of two. There’s also a separate shelf for delicate items like eggs and a bottom shelf for oversized items like a pack of 40 water bottles. So shoppers can use Dash Cart whether they just want a small amount of items or are planning a BBQ with friends.

Amazon has changed the software on the touch screen to display images of nearby fresh fruits and produce. So instead of entering the four-digit price lookup code found on product stickers, the customer can simply enter which item they want. The trolley already had the ability to weigh products directly in the cart to eliminate further steps in the checkout process.

The new Dash Cart will have extended battery life and is also weather resistant, so shoppers can charge their carts less and have them delivered to their cars, no matter the weather.

In addition, the company’s software will more accurately locate the cart to better notify shoppers of discounts.

Launched in 2020, the smart shopping cart eliminates the need to queue at the checkout as users can log into the Amazon app or Whole Foods Market and then use the AI ​​cameras next to the Dash Cart wheel to scan their items. Once a customer has finished picking up items, all they have to do is exit through the Amazon Dash cart lane and the credit card associated with their Amazon account will be charged for the items. The Dash Cart screen shows real-time receipt of items in the cart and they are emailed to them after they leave.
