Mike Cutler/MHCPhotography We’ve known about Waymo’s autonomous Jaguar I-Paces for a while now. The company started talking about them way back in March of 2018 and got its first three kitted-out kitties in July of last year.Things have been relatively quiet with the Waymo Jags since then, but TechCrunch reported on Monday that these self-driving Jaguars had been seen testing on public roads in and around Mountain View, California aka the home of Waymo and its parent company Alphabet.Unlike the company’s Chrysler Pacifica vans currently operating in Arizona, the I-Paces are still sporting their human safety drivers during their initial public testing. The company has contracted to order 20,000 I-Paces from Jaguar and will start rolling them into its fleet beginning in 2020.Waymo is likely testing its next generation of hardware in these I-Pace models, and that would explain the fact that they appear to be testing in manual mode, with human drivers behind the wheel.Waymo opted not to comment further on future plans for testing the I-Pace models.
