Hyundai Motor Co to offer autonomous ride sharing services in California

Hyundai Motor Co will offer autonomous ride-sharing services in California from next month to study consumer behavior in an autonomous driving environment, the companies involved said on Friday.

The South Korean carmaker will team up with Pony.ai, a self-driving start-up, and mobility service provider Via to build a fleet of at least 10 Kona electric sport-utility vehicles to provide autonomous ride-sharing services called BotRide in Irvine, California, reports Reuters.

Sequoia Capital China-backed Pony.ai, which has a partnership with Toyota, will build self-driving systems with Hyundai, while Via will develop mobile phone applications for the service, the companies said.

While the vehicles will have self-driving functions, two safety operators will be onboard to take over if there is an emergency.

The service will start on Nov. 4. Hyundai has announced plans to invest $35 billion in mobility and other auto technologies by 2025.
