Waymo has picked Detroit for final assembly of its self-driving vehicles.
The company, once known as Google's self-driving car project and now a leader in the push to develop autonomous vehicles, had previously said it was scouting locations in southeast Michigan but did not name a specific city.
CEO John Krafcik revealed Detroit as the company's choice in a blog post scheduled to publish Tuesday titled, "Making Waymos in Motor City." It refers to being "up and running" this year.
"Today, we’re excited to announce that we’ve found the perfect facility in Detroit. We will partner with American Axle & Manufacturing to repurpose an existing facility, bringing a workforce back to an area where jobs in the automotive industry were recently lost," according to the post.
