Puff piece. They aren't selling anything.
they may or may not have revenue generating contracts. they also sell used. they might be testing the waters the vast majority of folks have no idea this amazon section even existed (including me).

It does appear that the links to the manufacturer's websites are sent with some additional information (there's a 'token' parameter in the URL). I suspect this, at the very least, is some sort of revenue-generating deal where Amazon gets a little bit of coin for sending buyers straight to the automaker's website. In exchange, it's possible that some user information (even generic info like basic demographics or location) is sent as part of that 'token' parameter sent. I wouldn't be surprised if this is just the beginning of Amazon stepping into the pool of vehicle sales.

I'm sure they are getting paid for click-throughs. No harm there.
