2017 Chrysler Pacifica


It’s not exactly the merger that Sergio Marchionne has been looking for, but it appears that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is partnering with Google to build an autonomous Chrysler Pacifica.


Bloomberg reports that the autonomous minivans will be prototypes for the time being, noting that the project marks the beginning of a multiphase plan by the two companies to create production-ready self-driving vehicles in the future. Google, for its part, has completed more than 1.4 million miles of driverless testing on its autonomous-vehicle technology, unveiling its own prototype autonomous car in May 2014. The tech giant has been in search of an established automotive industry partner for some time. A collaboration with Ford was announced, but little has been said since.
