Jaguar Land Rover to unveil three new models in NY

Waymo to create luxury, self-driving electric car with Jaguar

Waymo and Jaguar Land Rover are partnering to create a new fleet of all-electric, self-driving vehicles.

The company is planning to up to 20,000 I-PACE SUVs to its self-driving taxi fleet in the next few years which will enable to drive a million trips on a typical day, according to Waymo.

Krafcik stated that the I-PACE would be a ideal addition to the company's current fleet of vehicles, describing the auto as the first premium all-electric fully self-driving auto, and a vehicle that "car lovers are looking for". The company plans to introduce a driverless ride service over the next two years.

In September, Bloomberg reported that Jaguar Land Rover was weighing purchases of technology companies that could boost its efforts to roll out electric vehicles and autonomous driving systems.

Waymo has been working on self-driving technology since 2009.

"Over time, we'll cover a region that's larger than the size of Greater London, and we'll add more vehicles as we grow", Waymo said in a statement at the time. Waymo now has a fleet of driverless Chrysler Pacifica vans as part of its ongoing agreement with Fiat Chrysler. Uber has stopped testing its self-driving technology on city streets, and so has Toyota.

In a statement to ABC10 , Clark's grandmother, Sequita Thompson, said she was inside her home when the shooting occurred. Officers responded to the area along 29th Street and 69th Avenue after reports that a man had been breaking into cars.

This announcement comes on the heels of the first death involving an autonomous vehicle being tested on public roads.

The vehicle in question - a $69,500 Jaguar i-Pace announced earlier this month - brings the fight right to Tesla's door. Yes, Jaguar now has access to far more driverless tech than before - but Waymo has now unlocked a thousands strong fleet of EVs, and with that miles and miles of data and experience. The company is now trialing the service in Arizona, including with cars that don't have a physical driver present to take the wheel.

After courting major automakers for years, Waymo, the former Google self-driving project, inked its first deal with Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV in 2016. Later this year Waymo will launch the world's first self-driving transportation service allowing members of the public to use Waymo's app to request a vehicle.

It's been roughly a week since it was reported that one of Uber's self-driving vehicles hit and killed a pedestrian in Arizona.

Jaguar Land Rover and Waymo today announce a long-term strategic partnership.
