FCA Partners with Aurora on Self-Driving Commercial Vehicles

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV has partnered with California startup Aurora Innovation Inc. to create and market self-driving commercial vehicles.

The companies plan to marry Aurora’s autonomous-driving platform with FCA’s light-duty commercial vehicles. The partners offered no details about the value of their agreement, when it aims to go to market or how many vehicles will be involved.

Aurora secured $530 million in second-round funding in February, which valued the 3-year-old company at $2.5 billion. Aurora has already partnered with Hyundai, Volkswagen and China’s Future Mobility Corp.
