If you're interested in getting behind the metaphorical wheel of one of Waymo's self-driving taxis, the company will be opening up its ride-hailing service to Phoenix citizens sometime this year.
Google-owned self-driving auto software firm Waymosaid Tuesday that FCA will provide it with "thousands" of Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid minivans. (GM) to step up their efforts to open a self-driving ride-hailing service.
That has big implications. It could be 2,000 hybrids, or it could be in the tens of thousands, for all we know.
Last November in Phoenix, Waymo began test-driving its fleet of minivans.
"With the world's first fleet of fully self-driving vehicles in the street, we've moved from development and research to operations and installation", Waymo manager John Krafcik said in a statement.

The automaker delivered 100 Pacificas adapted for self-driving to Waymo in the second half of 2016, FCA said, with another 500 produced past year. WIth the new cars, the company will be able to expand in many other USA cities.
Waymo previously ordered 100 of the FCA vehicles in 2016 and another 500 past year as part of a collaboration to build autonomous cars at scale using hardware and software from the technology group. But at least for now, it still has a steering wheel.
Nearly all of the self-driving Chrysler Pacifica minivans of the company are now driving around Chandler & that too without a human test driver. Precisely where will depend, at least for the moment, on what states have authorized the use of completely driverless vehicles on public roads. The minivan's electrical, powertrain, chassis and structural systems make an ideal vehicle to accommodate Waymo's self-driving technology.
While the exact number is not yet known, the first minivans will be arrive in 2018. Image source: General Motors. Other players looking to get into the driverless mobility services business include the two largest of today's ride-sharing companies, Uber and Lyft.
