AutoX to launch robotaxi service with Chrysler Pacifica minivans, announcement at CES 2020

The Chrysler Pacifica hybrid minivan is becoming the self-driving vehicle of choice for robotaxi services.

AutoX this week said it was partnering with the Italian American automaker to deploy a self-driving fleet early this year in China and eventually the United States. Fiat Chrysler will supply minivan mules for the service like it does for Google affiliate Waymo LLC’s Phoenix service. But leaving the development of the technology up to technology companies may be leaving Fiat Chrysler behind, some experts say.
