Walmart is cruising over to Scottsdale, Arizona, to rev up a new pilot with self-driving car company, Cruise. What’s unique about Cruise is they’re the only self-driving car company to operate an entire fleet of all-electric vehicles powered with 100% renewable energy, which supports our road to zero emissions by 2040.
As part of the pilot, which begins early next year, customers can place an order from their local store and have it delivered, contact-free, via one of Cruise’s all-electric self-driving cars. Technology that has the potential to not only save customers time and money but also is helpful to the planet is technology Walmart wants to learn more about.
In April alone, Walmart launched Express Delivery and have since scaled it to more than 2,800 stores, reaching more than 65% of American households.
Since there is no driver–it is safe to assume that the customer will have go outside and get the packages.
