Waymo has confirmed plans to buy up to 20,000 I-Pace electric cars, with the aim of delivering one million rides per day in its driverless cars by 2020.

Waymo has been testing autonomous cars in the wild for some time and has already racked up more than 5 million autonomous miles. Waymo plans to open its autonomous ride-hailing service at some point in 2018 in Phoenix. The vote of confidence comes a day after Arizona's governor suspended Uber from testing in the state following the first pedestrian death involving a self-driving vehicle.

The Senate is also trying to fast-track regulations, but even at a rapid pace by government standards, rules for self-driving vehicles are likely to develop more slowly than technology companies are accustomed to. The vehicle in use, and the thousands more coming to Waymo, were developed in Novi and manufactured in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

The tie-up is just the latest in a series of partnerships and integration pacts between Waymo and other automakers.
