Jaguar Land Rover and Waymo announced a long-term strategic partnership under which the two companies will develop premium self-driving electric vehicles for Waymo's driverless transportation service.

He added, "To serve the billion trips that occur on a typical day in the USA, they'd need about 35 million vehicles".

Waymo now tests its self-driving system on Chrysler Pacifica minivans built by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. Under the terms of the deal, the cars will begin testing this year, including capturing real-world data.

"Honda makes a lot of products, in a lot of different product categories", Krafcik said, without elaborating further.

The company's first full-electric SUV, the Jaguar I-PACE, was launched earlier this month and highlights the firm's commitment to investing heavily to become the leaders in autonomous, connected, and future electrified technologies. This hardware will work hand-in-hand with Waymo's AI-powered software, which will enable the vehicles to pick up and drop off passengers in selected areas without a human driver.

"Our model at Waymo isn't to be a auto company", Krafcik said during a question-and-answer session. Waymo is the only company to date that has a fleet of fully self-driving cars - with no one in the front seat - on public roads. But that legislation is on hold amid questions over the safety of self-driving vehicles following the March 18 death of a pedestrian struck by a self-driving Uber test vehicle in Arizona.

Arizona's governor suspended testing by Uber on Monday.

Jaguar Land Rover plans to start delivering the vehicles in 2020.
