2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid To Be Self-Driven By Google Technology

Google’s self-driving technology will be integrated into around a hundred 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans to expand Google’s existing self-driving test program as Google for the first time collaborates directly with an automaker, in this case FCA, to put its autonomous driving sensors and software, into a passenger vehicle. The self-driving Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans will be tested by Google’s self-driving car team on its private test track in California prior to operating on public roads. Google’s self-driving cars are currently being tested in four U.S. cities. Both companies will co-locate part of their engineering teams at a facility in southeastern Michigan to accelerate the design, testing and manufacturing of the self-driving Chrysler Pacifica.
