Volvo Is One Step Closer To Building Self-Driving Cars
Details about the partnership are scarce, but Volvo says Waymo’s self-driving vehicle platform will initially be used for an autonomous Volvo ride-hailing service. The partnership also applies to Volvo’s electric performance brand Polestar and Lynk & Co, which suggests the level four self-driving tech will also feature in future road-going Volvo and Polestar models since Volvo wants a third of its cars to have self-driving technology by 2025.
“Fully autonomous vehicles have the potential to improve road safety to previously unseen levels and to revolutionize the way people live, work and travel,” said Henrik Green, chief technology officer at Volvo Car Group. “Our global partnership with Waymo opens up new and exciting business opportunities for Volvo Cars, Polestar and Lynk & Co.”
