Waymo announced the partnership Tuesday, which will see the mobility company buy 20,000 Jaguar I-Pace all-electric SUVs. "Its big, fast-charge battery means it can drive all day, which is perfect for our self-driving service" - John Krafcik, chief executive officer of Waymo.
Waymo said they will launch their autonomous-drive ride hailing service later this year. The Waymo and Jaguar deal runs through 20256. The reveal comes on the heels of a fatal accident in which an Uber test vehicle struck a pedestrian in Arizona while in autonomous mode.
