DETROIT, MICHIGAN — Fiat Chrysler and Google for the first time will offer rides to the public in the self-driving automobiles they are building under an expanding partnership.

The companies announced in the spring of last year that they would build 100 self-driving Chrysler Pacifica hybrids minivans. Those vehicles have been tested in Arizona, California and Michigan.

Waymo, Google’s self-driving care project, said Tuesday that it will allow hundreds of people in Phoenix to take rides in the vehicles so that it can get feedback on the experience. People can apply on Waymo’s website.

    Yeah, sure, FIAT makes SUCH reliable cars – FIAT really does Fix It Again Tony. And GM – Government Motors – is such a well run business, Dear Leader Obozo had to GIVE it 100’s of millions of dollars to bail it out.

      Having owned both a Chrysler and a FIAT – I wouldn’t want to be a passenger or a pedestrian near any POS manufactured by that company.

      They could have it made in GM Venezuela, but for Maduro seizing the plant.
