Jaguar and Waymo have announced the start of a new partnership that will see the two companies come together to create I-Pace self-driving vehicles for Waymo’s fleet. The first Waymo self-driving Jaguar I-Pace will start tests this year before it becomes part of Waymo’s driverless fleet in 2020.

Up to 20,000 self-driving I-Pace vehicles will be built in the first two years of production and be available for riders of Waymo’s driverless service.

“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,” stated Jaguar Land Rover CEO, Prof. DR. Ralf Speth.

John Krafcik, Waymo CEO also added, “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.”
