The group Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Waymo (company created by Google for the development of its cars autonomous) have very advanced their collaboration. If the other day I informed you of that through the creation of this society is would advance them works relating to the car autonomous of both firms already have them first images external of the model that will give form to this program.
The Chrysler Pacifica is the vehicle that has replaced of a stroke to the previous Chrysler Town & Country and thanks to its modern platform and to the possibility of mount a mechanical hybrid has been selected for host in its inside to all it load technological that will give life to this car autonomous. This large minivan stands as the most technological car which has the FCA group for sale in the United States.
Another of them reasons that have given them executives of Google and FCA for justify the choice of this model is that they understand that them cars autonomous must compete against the transportation public instead of focus this competition with them vehicles particular. In addition, we also have alluded to reasons and practical accessibility since due to its generous size people can sit much better inside and inside has more space to integrate all the technology used.
This is the first of the 100 units of the Chrysler Pacifica which are to be used for the testing of validation of the autonomous technology of Google. For this have chosen the version with mechanical hybrid of this minivan. The Pacifica Hybrid uses the engine 3.6 V6 287 Horsepower Pentastar associated with a nine-speed automatic transmission. In addition, is supported in two engines electric and thanks to a battery of ion of lithium of 16 kWh will be capable of travel 48 kilometers in mode zero emissions.
Finally both Google as FCA are exerting pressure to the authorities of the United States to the rules on this type of vehicle is more homogeneous. In addition, also are requesting that the obligation that exists of that these vehicles have a steering wheel and pedal of brakes is eliminated. Missing by confirm when will begin the tests of way official, but having the car already ready not should delay is much more in the time.
