The I-PACE has been developed with Panasonic Jaguar Racing's FIA Formula E Championship expertise, and Jaguar has now created the world's first production battery electric vehicle race series with a circuit-ready version of the I-PACE. "The I-Pace is the world's first premium electric vehicle".

"This year in 2018, starting in Phoenix, Arizona - there members of the public will be able to take these fully self-driving cars anywhere within our service area", Waymo CEO John Krafcik said at a press event in NY.

The announcement marks Waymo's first obvious step towards bringing autonomous vehicles to Europe. Waymo is launching the service first in Phoenix, Arizona.

The company started testing its self-driving minivans on public roads in Novi, Michigan in late 2017.

Waymo has been vocal already about how its cars would have handled the incident differently - and better.

Waymo, the self-driving arm of Alphabet has announced at a press conference today in NY that it will supply luxury automaker Jaguar with self-driving technology for its new electric i-Pace SUV.




Jaguar CEO Ralf Speth said he'd already "ringfenced" the 20,000 models of the I-Pace for Waymo.The vehicle will go on sale to the general public in the U.S. towards the end of this year. That means Waymo has abandoned its plans to build an automobile of its own and will focus on being a supplier of autonomous technology to the industry.

"That Waymo want to offer one million rides a day shows they're definitely going after Uber", commented Mr Stevens. Our cars have covered five million autonomous miles on roads in 25 different American cities.

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

"At Waymo, we've been building the world's most experienced driver: a safe, skillful and savvy chauffeur that can take people and things from A to B at the push of a button", the company wrote. It is all-new from the ground up and is a no compromise, desirable and practical electric performance auto.

The Jaguar I-Pace is expected to join Waymo's planned autonomous taxi fleet by 2020.

The Waymo Jaguar I-PACE is being shown at the New York International Auto Show.
