Uber has struck a deal to buy up to 24,000 self-driving cars from Volvo.
The agreement envisages that the pick-up service will purchase the vehiclesover the course of three years beginning in 2019.
Uber began testing prototypes made by the carmaker last year in the US.
One expert said the announcement “makes a good headline” but had doubts that fully autonomous, driverless Uber rides would be ready to begin until some years later.
Uber and Volvo have not disclosed financial terms, but have confirmed that the deal is “non-exclusive” – meaning both are free to form similar partnerships with others.
