Jaguar is joining forces with a self-driving tech giant to ensure premium fully electric autonomous vehicles are part of its new transportation services.
Waymo, initially the Google self-driving car project, is the only company testing autonomous cars on roads in America without drivers inside. And it will be testing Jaguar’s I-PACE full-electric SUV using its self-driving tech later this year.
“With the Jaguar I-PACE we have a world-beating car that’s captured the imagination of customers around the world. Our passion for further advancing smart mobility needs expert long-term partners. In joining forces with Waymo we are pioneering to push the boundaries of technology. Together we will deliver the self-driving Waymo Jaguar I-PACE with the grace, space and eco-pace that customers expect,” said Professor Ralf Speth, Jaguar Land Rover CEO.
The goal is to have 20,000 of these vehicles added to Waymo’s driverless transportation service, which will be accessed using an app, within two years of production.
