For Waymo’s critically important to get ahead in paid services the main competitors of the firms GM Cruise and Uber. “Now Waymo speeds up because if you delay another two or three years, overtake them. But an early start for them is pretty risky,” said Klaus fröhlich from BMW.

Today the head of the American company Waymo John Krafcik announced the launch of commercial service Waymo One — paid Autonomous taxi. While it will only work in the capital of Arizona, Phoenix and about a 160-kilometer zone around it, covering four suburbs. Passengers will be informed registered users of the software Early Rider (it’s a few hundred people). Driving in any case to sit (but not control) the driver of Waymo.

Now Navy Waymo has about 600 cars. Recently the total mileage of cars-robots reached 10 million miles. The cost of the whole thing certainly exceeded a billion dollars. The time has come to discourage them and make money, but the biggest problem is a controversial law.

The Reuters correspondent has tested on itself One Waymo. He said that 15 minutes at a distance of 4.8 km at a cost of $7,59 (507 rubles) is a little more expensive than a similar order in the service, Lyft ($7,22). According to the journalist, the drone “is similar to a novice driver, slow and timid.” The car is downright obsessed with the safety of pedestrians, but may not recognize their intentions. For example, she stayed for the sake of the person standing at the crosswalk and talking on the phone, although it was clear that he was not going to cross the street.

Bandwidth changes occur “with a hesitant jerk”, while from the speakers hear the command “left” or “right” — so the robot warns the passengers about their actions. Also didn’t like “slowing down to a crawl” in front of the signs and “speed bumps”. At the same time a left turn into the Parking lot, crossing three lanes of oncoming traffic and other difficult maneuvers went off without a hitch. The correspondent says: when the service Waymo One will lose the effect of novelty, not the fact that people will choose it at a price similar to the human taxi.

The wheelbase is likely to be similar to the hatch — 2650 mm, but total length will exceed 4310 mm, and the trunk will be more 395 L.

The first official photos of the model Kia Xceed will be shown in the summer, and the premiere will take place on the tenth of September at Motorshow in Frankfurt. Meanwhile, the SUV with bumpers that did not appear in the body color, rides on the roads of South Korea without any masking. And now there is no doubt that Xceed got your own body, not recycled “shell” hatchback Ceed.

The designers have tried to distance themselves from Xceed Sid. Headlight cutout — new, long lights, too. Another grille in the front bumper the horizontal ties. Silver paste instead of the rear window looks strange. Forked release is not the same as the Sid GT.

While none of the representatives sadovskoy family, including Cerato, no all-wheel drive. Deprived of it, and a new Soul, and Stonic. But Xceed is theoretically able to break the vicious circle if, for example, comes closer to the model of Hyundai Kona or “Rob” the elder brother of the Sportage. In addition, the approach of a new global compactthat will not only front-wheel drive.

The separation motors on the nominations, there was a marked change. If the earlier category was different in the working volume, now in power. So, it is possible to compare the hybrids and electric vehicles, and rotary-piston internal combustion engine in which the amount is taken into account distinctive, and theoretically, the gas turbine unit, in which the working volume is not there.

He also took home the glass plate (so decorated with awards) with the inscription “Best Performance Engine”.
