Waymo To Supply Self-Driving Technology to Jaguar

  • Waymo's buying up to 20,000 Jaguar I-PACE SUVs and outfitting them with its self-driving tech

Testing of Jaguar I-Pace vehicles equipped with Waymo's self-driving systems will begin later this year.

"It's the self-driving vehicle that car lovers have been waiting for", Waymo's CEO John Krafcik said, in a reveal this morning in Manhattan, ahead of the NY auto show. However, one of Uber's autonomous vehicles was recently at center of the first fatality resulting from a self-driving vehicle mishap.

JLR CEO Dr. Ralf Speth says for his company, it's "about providing the right mobility service at the right time", and that the self-driving vehicle is an issue of choice. The company will use a new Jaguar luxury electric auto called the I-Pace.

Waymo previously announced its goal of having self-driving services available to the public this year. Waymo has been testing self-driving trucks in California and Arizona and just started testing in Atlanta, hauling cargo to Google's data centers.

Waymo estimates that once all 20,000 driverless I-Pace models are on U.S. roads, they will collectively perform one million rides per day. Engineers from both companies will work together to fit the electric SUVs with self-driving technology during construction rather than attempting to retrofit each vehicle after the fact. The consumer version of the I-Pace comes to showrooms later this year - without the self-driving gear.

With this many self-driving I-Pace vehicles, Waymo will theoretically be able to provide 1 million driverless trips a day, Krafick said.

Our passion for further advancing smart mobility needs expert long-term partners.

Many other autonomous driving firms are proceeding more cautiously now that we've seen what could be the first pedestrian death resulting from the technology, but Waymo is pressing forward even more aggressively. It is all-new from the ground up and is a no compromise, desirable and practical electric performance auto.

The announcement occurred a day before two media preview days at the NY auto show.
