jaguar land rover and waymo’s partnership aims to further the two brand’s shared goals: to make cars safer, free up people’s valuable time and improve mobility for everyone. with the jaguar ‘I-PACE’ model, the driverless fleet will feature the british brand’s first fully electric production car, which merges dynamic sports performance with efficiency. the imminently scheduled on-road testing will capture real-world data that will help refine self-driving technology further and deliver optimum safety and reliability.



while we’ve been focused at waymo on building the world’s most experience driver, the team at jaguar land rover has developed an all-new battery-electric platform that looks to set a new standard in safety, design and capability,explains john krafcik, waymo CEO. ‘we’re sure waymo riders will enjoy the safe, premium and delightful experience that the self-driving I-PACE will provide.
