Google Uses Lexus RX 450h SUV in Autonomous Testing Fleet

The latest vehicle added to Google's autonomous testing fleet is a Lexus RX 450h SUV, the company said on its official blog. Though Prius cars served as earlier testers, Google says the RX 450h is helping to improve the technology in new terrains and environments.

Google’s autonomous cars still need to master driving in snow and around construction zones, among other unexpected driving situations. Currently, each self-driving car has two passengers onboard, but soon team members will commute in the cars on their own.
The company claims to have logged more than 300,000 miles in its autonomous cars, with the single accident reported due to human error. About a dozen of the cars are on the road at any given time.
