Uber and Volvo to create self-driving car

Uber and Volvo are partners now in the project on the developing of self-driving car. Both companies are ready to invest $300m in this perspective project, which can be extremely interesting as a long-term partnership between the US ride-booking app and the Swedish premium automaker.

The two powerful corporations, Uber and Volvo, intend to invest $300m into the joint project on the creation of self-driving car. Swedish and American businesses will jointly develop an innovative vehicle that will serve as i) a self-driving taxi for Uber, and ii) an autonomous car with a driver for Volvo.

“We see this as the first step in a long-term industrial partnership.”

Uber, at last, found the loyal and solid partner, in fact, over six months taxi-service was looking for it. Travis Kalanick is happy with a new partnership, he believes that Volvo is the best brand in class when it comes to safety.
