The American company Waymo announced the start of cooperation with the Chinese group Geely Auto. The partners intend to promote transportation as a service (TaaS) primarily on US roads. The young subsidiary brand Zeekr has already prepared a new electric compact van, sharpened for Waymo equipment, but the introduction of the model (so far unnamed) into the taxi fleet will not happen soon – “in the coming years.”
It is stated that the safety level of the compact van “complies with US federal standards.” Nothing is said about the launch of the model in China, although the JiDU brand (an enterprise of Geely and Baidu) should be interested in the project. Probably, the Chinese have enough of their own drones (such as the Baidu Apollo) and “natural-born taxis” (FAW Bestune NAT, BYD D1).
