Google-FCA deal could yield autonomous Chrysler Pacifica

By ,

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Google are expected to announce a new technology partnership today, Bloomberg reports.

The tech giant has been talking to various automakers about the possibility to integrate its autonomous driving technologies to some of their vehicles. One insider said the deal would start with the Chrysler Pacifica minivan.

Talks between Google and FCA began in 2013, according to one of the people familiar with the matter.

Google will reportedly supply (and own) the electronic systems and software for the autonomous vehicles, which FCA will build. The former has long said it wouldn’t manufacture its own cars.
