Yandex will release new prototypes of unmanned vehicles based on serial Huyndai and Kia
Yandex has partnered with Hyundai Mobis, a subsidiary of Hyundai, which manufactures automotive components. Thanks to the agreement, Yandex expects to accelerate the development of the unmanned taxi service.
Our unmanned driving technology is unique and has already proven its scalability. Yandex drones successfully ride around Moscow, Tel Aviv and Las Vegas, which means that they can be taught to ride anywhere. In just two years, we have moved from the first tests to the launch of a full-fledged service of an unmanned taxi. Now, thanks to the partnership with the Hyundai Mobis, we hope to move even faster.

Yandex for the first time showed an unmanned vehicle in May 2017. Until now, all prototype technology has been installed on the Toyota Prius.
