JLR joins with Waymo to make first self-driving electric auto

The Waymo-powered self-driving Jaguar I-PACE SUV

Waymo, the company that grew of out of Google's self-driving vehicle project, announced a deal to buy up to 20,000 electric cars over the next two years, a move that shows the scope of its ambition when it comes to driverless ride-hailing services. The company says the fleet would be capable of handling one million rides a day.

Waymo's current fleet consists primarily of Lexus RX 450h Hybrid crossovers (which are being phased out) and Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans.

"Honda makes a lot of products, in a lot of different product categories", Krafcik said, without elaborating further.

"With the Jaguar I-PACE we have a world-beating vehicle that's captured the imagination of customers around the world".

2019 Jaguar I-Pace electric crossover priced from $70,495 in U.S. The SUV is the first battery-powered vehicle for the brand, underscoring the convergence of electrification and automation. Last month, it released a video created to help potential passengers envision what it is like to ride inside an autonomous vehicle. Arizona governor Doug Ducey ordered an indefinite suspension of Uber's public road testing of driverless cars in the state.

The cases of farmers suicide reported in the states ruled by BJP were the results of "depression and personal issues", Shah said. Both Malviya and Srivasta tweeted at 11.08 am, while the EC only made the announced at 11.23 am, as pointed out by AltNews .

Jaguar Land Rover, which is owned by Tata, of India, accounts for nearly one in three cars produced in the UK. "Together we will deliver the self-driving Waymo Jaguar I-Pace with the grace, space and eco-pace that customers expect". The announcement of a substantial vehicle fleet for the Phoenix roll-out demonstrates that Waymo has taken a significant step forward in the race to pioneer the world of self-driving cars. Companies planning to launch driverless auto services generally supplement existing hardware on vehicles supplied by automakers with their own self-driving technology.

"We all have to build some trust into the technology and obviously this would be a little bit of a setback", Fay said.

Waymo has committed to launching the first fully-driverless taxi fleet - without a human safety driver - in Arizona by the end of 2018.

Experts believe that by eliminating the driver, ride-sharing services will be able to reduce their costs to the point that it will be cheaper to hail a ride than own than operate a private vehicle.
