Fiat Teams Up with Google in Driverless Car Deal

Fiat is set to team up with Google and double the tech giant’s fleet of self-driving minivans.

The Italian car manufacturer announced today that it will supply 100 Chrysler Pacifica vans to the US-based company. It will also provide Fiat engineers to help integrate the driverless technology.

According to both companies, it is the ‘most advanced advanced partnership to date between Silicon Valley and a traditional carmaker’.

Google is working with Fiat as it believes it will speed up its efforts to develop a full self-driving car.

Fiat chief executive Sergio Marchionne has, in the past, been quoted as saying he does not believe the likes of Google should be involved in the automotive industry so news of the agreement could is considered a surprise by analysts.

Other tech companies, such as Apple, are understood to be working on their own driverless car as are many other car manufacturers.

Google wants it first driverless car to be ready to go on sale by 2020. The internet business will apparently ‘own’ the Fiat cars but the agreement between the two companies is by no means exclusive.

Apparently, both are allowed to work with other companies to further develop driverless technology. However, Fiat, stands to benefit most as it could become a major driverless car manufacturer for Google.

Fiat, which stands for Fabbrica Italiana Automobili Torino in Italian, was founded in 1899 and is one of the oldest car manufacturers in the world. It acquired Chrysler in 2014.
