Did you know that autonomous vehicles have the potential to prevent thousands of deaths that occur each year on U.S. roads, 94 percent of which are caused by human error, according to a press release issued by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. To alleviate this number by a large margin, or perhaps even indefinitely, the Google Self-Driving Project and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will partner to test a fleet of fully autonomous Chrysler Pacifica Hybrids.

In a press release issued last month, FCA and Google announced "in a first-of-its-kind collaboration, that they will integrate Google’s self-driving technology into all-new 2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans to expand Google’s existing self-driving test program. This marks the first time that Google has worked directly with an automaker to integrate its self-driving system, including its sensors and software, into a passenger vehicle. The Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans will be used later this year for Google’s self-driving testing, more than doubling Google’s current fleet of self-driving test vehicles."

This testing project will give both companies the fundamental knowledge needed to deliver automotive technology solutions in the future. We can't wait to see what happens next.

Currently in the market for a new vehicle? We highly recommend the 2017 Chrysler Pacifica. Come test drive one today.
