The Chinese firm Geely Holding said its premium electric mobility brand, Zeekr, will make electric vehicles for Waymo Alphabet Inc’s self-driving unit that will be used in fully autonomous taxi-hailing cars all over all of the United States.
The cars will be developed and developed by Zeekr’s company in Sweden and then later joined with Waymo’s autonomous technologies, Geely said on Tuesday.
Waymo announced that it will bring the vehicles on U.S. roads “in the coming years.”
Concept photos from Waymo released on Tuesday depict the spacious, low-tothe-ground minivan that can seat up to five people as well as sliding doors either side, which serve as the primary entrances.
Waymo was the very first sole autonomous taxi company that operates in the United States. It has transported hundreds of passengers since the launch of the service last year in Phoenix.
The alliance with Zeekr will assist Waymo increase its ride-hailing service that is driverless in the face of growing competition. The partnership will also provide opportunities towards the entry of Chinese company Geely in market share in the U.S. market.
