The collaboration is the first time an all-electric auto has been integrated into a commercial ride-hailing service. The companies didn't disclose financial terms, but Waymo is planning to purchase the I-Pace vehicles, which sell for $69,500. "In addition, they have travelled five billion miles in simulations, and have been subjected to 20,000 individual tests in Waymo's test "city".
Meanwhile, everything in an electric vehicle is already drive-by-wire. Waymo's second fleet of retail vehicles for testing were hundreds of Chrysler Pacifica minivans.
Stanikzai special takes Afghanistan to World Cup 2019
The side includes three players each from Afghanistan and the Windies, two from Zimbabwe, two from Scotland and one from Ireland. The West Indies booked their spot in next year's tournament in England earlier in the week.
The companies said they expect as many as 20,000 of the all-electric crossover SUVs to comprise Waymo's fleet of autonomous taxis in two years' time, with the goal of serving a potential 1 million trips a day.
"It ended up being a really terrific next vehicle for us and fit one of the key aspects of our business plan", John Krafcik, Waymo's chief executive officer, said in an interview.

Prime Minister Theresa May welcomed the move and said it sent a strong message to Moscow that it can not ignore worldwide law. British officials have placed the blame squarely on Russian Federation , a charge President Vladimir Putin adamantly denies.
Krafcik also noted that Waymo is on the verge of "shifting focus from research and development to operations".
Waymo has already tested its autonomous technology in 25 USA cities, and adding thousands more Pacifica Hybrids and 20,000 Jaguars will support the expansion of its service.
Waymo has been working on self-driving cars since 2009 and has driven more than eight million kilometres on public roads. The Jaguar I-Pace we'll get to see much sooner, though - sometime this year is when it's going to arrive in showrooms and be available for road tests. The I-PACE is all-wheel drive, but there's no driveshaft running the length of the SUV to connect the rear wheels to the front.
