Waymo And Jaguar Introduce A Premium Self-Driving Electric Car

Waymo reveals special edition Jaguar I-PACE as self-driving cars go premium
The two companies are teaming up to build a fleet of self-driving I-Paces, Jaguar'snew battery electric vehicle (BEV) which goes on sale later this year. The SUVs will be earmarked for Waymo's autonomous taxi service, and the two companies estimate that they could handle up to 1 million trips daily once they're on the road.
As part of the deal with Jaguar, Waymo plans to have 20,000 units on the streets, starting in Phoenix with about 100 square mile area, roughly one-sixth of the Phoenix metropolitan area. I don't mind, as I rather drive a Jaguar I-Pace myself and not let the computer have that pleasure. The I-PACE will be able to travel 240 miles on a single charge and accelerate from 0-60 mph in under five seconds. Waymo so far has relied on these little toy cars.
In September, Bloomberg reported that Jaguar Land Rover was weighing purchases of technology companies that could boost its efforts to roll out electric vehicles and autonomous driving systems.
"This new self-driving Jaguar I-PACE blends Jaguar's knack for innovative design with Waymo's cutting-edge self-driving technology, designed and developed completely in-house", the company reports in the release.

Google's former self-driving auto project, now known as Waymo, announced it will buy 20,000 electric vehicles from Jaguar Land Rover in an attempt to launch a premium, autonomous ride-hailing service.
Just a few days after a fatal crash involving a self-driving Uber test vehicle, Waymo chief John Krafcik underscored Waymo's significant testing and mileage.
Following that incident, Uber suspended all of its autonomous vehicle testing operations. The company also said it's working with Lyft on autonomous-driving technology and will offer vehicles for rent to the San Francisco-based startup's drivers. He said the Uber death was very sad "as is the deaths we have every day on the road from human errors and human behaviour".

Trump tweets threat of funding veto
The veto tweet no doubt surprised Republican congressional leaders, who thought they had secured Trump's approval this week. Instead, Trump won $1.6 billion to begin building and replacing segments of the wall along the border with Mexico .
