Chrysler will provide prototypes for Google Auto

New details suggest that Google is buying about 100 cars from the Chrysler, to use them as a prototype, but unlike Lexus SUVs that Google is testing now, the company will provide “Accelerated Technology course” for Chrysler. It is assumed that the Pacifica model is more optimal for Google placement of sensors that make vehicles more aesthetic than the current prototypes.

Not so long ago it became known that the company Fiat Chrysler is going to sign an agreement with Google to produce a self-managed car. This morning, Bloomberg has provided information according to which Pacifica minivan will be the first autonomous vehicle from Google and Fiat Chrysler, but it looks like several other companies’ plans.

Also, the heads of both companies appeared before the media with a statement that the deal does not include a plan to bring Google technology for the production of Chrysler vehicles. Google head of automotive design, John Krefkik, said that they liked “nimble and focused” the nature of the engineering team Fiat Chrysler, and that the company intends to provide as much as possible vehicles for Google.

Pacifica will be the third vehicle used Google to test self-driving technology. New prototypes are also working on batteries that provide a range of economic and environmental benefits.
