Pony.ai's self-driving car takes media for test drive

This is the self-driving ''PonyAlpha X'' system

launched by autonomous car company Pony.ai

Location: Beijing, China

The startup is backed by Toyota Motor Corp

and already has a fleet of about 200 autonomous vehicles

with Robotaxi services in:

Guangzhou

Shanghai

Beijing

Irvine

Fremont

(SOUNDBITE) (Mandarin) CEO AND CO-FOUNDER OF PONY.AI, JAMES PENG, SAYING:"After we expand our service area, this isn't going to be just a personal experience, confined to those who use our self-driving car. If people want to go out for lunch or go to and from the office, or even come to this hotel, they can all take one of our cars. In this way, we can really allow self-drivingcars to meet everyone's traveling needs.''
