It took us just two years to go from the first basic tests to a full-fledged public robotaxi service. Now, thanks to our agreement with Hyundai Mobis, we will be able to move even faster, ” says Arkady Volozh, CEO of Yandex.

Yandex first began testing self-driving prototypes in the Spring of 2017, by mid-2018 Yandex launched Europe’s first fully autonomous taxi service.
