Google’s autonomous car execs have made no secret of their interest in finding a partner in the automotive manufacturing world for their technology.
Could Fiat Chrysler Automobiles be that partner? According to a report Thursday on autoextremist.com, Google is in late stages of talks with FCA about a partnership that would transfer the tech company’s self-driving car innovations to the group’s expansive line-up that ranges from Chrysler mini-vans to Ferrari supercars.
In a coincidence, Fiat’s diminutive 500 two-door looks similar to Google’s self-driving two-passenger prototype. Both FCA and Google declined to comment on the speculation.
