Waymo expands driverless car testing to Florida

  • The company says that in the coming weeks, it’ll bring both its modified Chrysler Pacifica minivans and a Jaguar I-Pace to the Sunshine State to drive on a closed track in heavy rain, ahead of testing on public Miami roads later in the month.
  • And more recently, the company pledged to open an 85,000-square-foot technical service center in the city of Mesa, Arizona, near Phoenix’s East Valley, which it expects will “more than double” its capacity to maintain the fleet of cars in Waymo One. Waymo also announced last year that it would add up to 62,000 minivans to its fleet, and said that it had signed a deal with Jaguar Land Rover to equip 20,000 of the automaker’s Jaguar i-Pace electric SUVs with its autonomous system by 2020.
