Uber and Volvo reached a landmark deal in the self-driving industry. The auto manufacturer will be selling 24,000 of their luxury SUVs to the ride-hailing service between 2019 and 2021. Both companies will be working together to create an autonomous network for self-driving cars. Without a doubt, it’s easily the largest number of commercial vehicles being used in the process.

This new deal announced Monday is estimated to be worth $1 billion and will be using the popular Volvo XC90 model. Uber will modify the vehicles with their technology developed in the self-driving division of the company. This same model will also feature Volvo’s own autonomous technology as they ready for their commercially available self-driving car in 2021. The deal isn't exclusive and there could be less vehicles involved.
