Chrysler Delivers Fleet of Pacifica’s to Waymo for Self-Driving Cars Service!

FCA US LLC announced today an agreement to supply thousands of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans to Waymo to support the launch of the world’s first driverless ride-hailing service.

FCA previously delivered 100 Pacifica Hybrid minivans, adapted for self-driving, to Waymo during the second half of 2016 and an additional 500 in 2017. This first-of-its-kind collaboration between Waymo and FCA engineers enabled the teams to design a self-driving vehicle built on a mass production platform.
 
“In order to move quickly and efficiently in autonomy, it is essential to partner with like-minded technology leaders,” said Sergio Marchionne, Chief Executive Officer, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. “Our partnership with Waymo continues to grow and strengthen; this represents the latest sign of our commitment to this technology.”  

Waymo is set to open its autonomous ride-hailing service to the public beginning in Phoenix this year. The additional Pacifica Hybrid minivans will be used to support Waymo as it expands its service to more cities across the United States. Waymo has officially tested its technology in 25 cities across the U.S., including Atlanta, San Francisco, Metro Detroit, Phoenix and Kirkland, Washington.

Chrysler 300 Wins Big with Edmunds Most Want Car Awards

Edmunds’ Most Wanted awards have honored the Chrysler 300 as the winner of its Large Car segment. 

The 2018 Edmunds Most Wanted Awards is given for 17 different segments.  The way the winner is chosen is by analyzing the data from the first nine months of 2017 for all models on sale during that period.  From there Edmunds checked their site activity to see the vehicles in the different segments and their highest sales and the lowest average days-to-turn.  Then rankings for each were then weighed to figure out the winner of each category.

“Bold and aggressive, the Chrysler 300 stands out in a class of largely look-alike sedans, and its originality makes it one of the most popular large cars on the market,” said Jessica Caldwell, the executive director of industry analysis at Edmunds.

The 2018 Chrysler 300 3.60-liter V-6 models are available with the segment’s most technologically advanced all-wheel-drive system.  It also features class-exclusive innovations with the Uconnect 4 system.
