In this episode of Ride News Now with Alison Haislip, a massive robotaxi fleet has been delayed, a pair of automakers are teaming up to share autonomous and electric vehicle tech, and New England could soon see electric airplanes flying through the sky.
- First, General Motors wants to bring a massive fleet of autonomous Chevy Bolts to the streets of San Francisco. The rollout for this ambitious plan, however, has been delayed.
- Next, Volkswagen and Ford are keen to team up. The two automakers will share tech. Volkswagen has a solid electric vehicle platform while Ford is doing a deep dive into self-driving technology.
- Finally, there’s a new electric plane out there ready to soar through the sky. Called the Eviation Alice, it could be the world’s first mass-market electric airplane. Regional airline Cape Air, based in Massachusetts, has placed an order for 92 units. They could be in the sky as early as 2022.
