- Google’s tiny new cars are being built nearby Detroit by engineering firm Roush. They’re not mass produced, but according to Hunter, Google’s making “a few hundred” of the model.
- Google’s tiny cars only have a few buttons: a “go” button, a “please slow down and stop” button, and a “stop pretty quickly button.” However, you’ll primarily control the car with your voice.
- Hunter even hinted that Google might make, sell, or operate the cars themselves. “Right now, our engineers are trying to figure out … how to make a car genuinely drive itself,” Hunter told the Guardian. “Once we figure that out, we’ll figure out how to bring it to market and in which way. Is it something that we manufacture at scale for sale to individuals? Or is it something that we own and operate as a service?”
