Waymo Self-Driving Test Fleet Revealed

Waymo (ugh, don't get me started on that name) announced today that it has started production on one hundred self-driving cars based on Chrysler's Pacifica Hybrid minivans. I don't know, they don't look as ridiculous as some of the other self-driving cars on the road.

Waymo (formerly the Google self-driving car project) and FCA announced today that production of 100 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans uniquely built to enable fully self-driving operations has been completed. The vehicles are currently being outfitted with Waymo's fully self-driving technology, including a purpose-built computer and a suite of sensors, telematics and other systems, and will join Waymo's self-driving test fleet in early 2017. Waymo and FCA also revealed today the first images of the fully self-driving Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid vehicle.
