The Future is in Contract as Uber Orders $1.4 Billion Driverless Cars from Volvo

Uber has signed a deal for $1.4 billion o purchase 24,000 Volvo XC90 SUVs between 2019 and 2021 that are expected to transport passengers around—just without a human driving.

“Passengers can already hail a ride inside a driverless taxi in a small number of U.S. cities — most prominently Pittsburgh — but not without a human operator inside the vehicle,” Peter Holley wrote for  the Washington Post. “Monday’s deal between Uber and Volvo could set the stage for something entirely new: thousands of autonomous vehicles ferrying paying customers to their destinations without a human operator, the beginning of a multibillion-dollar robot revolution that could dramatically reconfigure how people get from one place to another,” Holley continues.

This is one of Uber’s largest deals to date and will see the evolution of transportation like nothing we’ve seen before.
