Toyota wants to invest around 500 million US dollars (430 million euros) in the American car dealer Uber, according to a media report. The proposed assignment is part of an agreed collaboration to develop robotic cars, the Wall Street Journal ("WSJ") reported today with newly elected circles. Uber generally gets a rating of about $ 72 billion.
Uber did not want to comment on the alleged collaboration with the newspaper. Toyota was initially not available for comment. According to the report, Uber is trying to reduce development costs in its lossy robot car segment after a fatal accident that occurred in Arizona in March.
