For FCA, they have chosen Waymo as their exclusive technology partner to implement their future Level 4 self-driving technology across their full lineup of vehicles.

Together, we’ll introduce the Waymo Driver throughout the FCA brand portfolio, opening up new frontiers for ride-hailing, commercial delivery, and personal-use vehicles around the world,” said John Krafcik, Chief Executive Officer, Waymo.

In the announcement, Waymo says the companies have already “started to work together to imagine future FCA products for the movement of people and goods operated by the Waymo Driver.

Separately, Waymo also announced they will work exclusively with FCA to develop and test self-driving light commercial vehicles used for commercial delivery customers.

Waymo initially plans to integrate its Waymo Driver technology into the Ram ProMaster full-size van.

No financial details of the deal were released.

Earlier this year, Waymo was able to secure $2.25 billion of funding in a capital raise that included the Canada Pension Plan.
