Geely announced on Tuesday that its premium electric brand, Zeekr, will collaborate with Waymo on the development of a new pure electric vehicle for deployment in the Waymo One autonomous ride-hailing fleet in the United States.
Baidu offers trial service of robotaxi in Changsha, Beijing and Cangzhou, stepping up its game for autonomous driving alongside domestic players AutoX and DiDi Chuxing, as well as US car maker Waymo and Tesla.
On February 29, the California Department of Motor Vehicles issued a series of “2019 Autonomous Driving Disengagement Reports.”
A new kind of vehicle that doesn’t require drivers seems to be just around the corner. Tech giants, startups, car makers, and ride-hailing firms are now racing to get the autonomous vehicles (AVs) on public roads.
Li Shufu said Geely, Volvo and other car companies are jointly developing an open electric model under the code PMA. “We’ve learned from Google’s Android, and PMA’s pure electric module is open,” Li said.
