Jaguar Land Rover on Monday said it has invested $25 million in Lyft as part of an effort to ramp up development of autonomous vehicles and other up-and-coming automotive technologies.
The car company will be able to develop and test its tech, including self-driving cars, on Lyft’s new Lyft Open Platform, which lets makers of self-driving cars plug into the ride-hailing company’s network.
Also as part of the deal, Jaguar Land Rover will supply a fleet of regular vehicles for Lyft drivers, according to a news release.The deal means Lyft drivers will be able to rent the cars to pick up passengers.
