The first self-styled “premium” autonomous car has been unveiled in New York – and it’s a Jaguar.
The vehicle, made in conjunction with Google’s self-driving unit Waymo, will be tested on public roads this year.
By 2020, the firms say 20,000 self-driving Jaguar sport utility vehicles (SUVs) will be part of Waymo’s public fleet.
The launch comes a week after an Uber self-driving car killed a woman in the state of Arizona.
The investigation into that crash is ongoing.
“That Waymo is moving forward shows a lot of confidence,” commented Tim Stevens, editor-in-chief of news site Roadshow.com.
“The company knows its technology is solid and it’s eager to allow a wider audience to experience it.”
