Google, Mercedes, Audi Get California Permits for Self-Driving Cars

California issued its first 29 permits this week to three companies to test self-driving cars on public roads, state officials said Thursday.

Google got permits for testing 25 adapted Toyota Lexus SUVs, and two permits each went to Daimler’s Mercedes-Benz and Volkswagen’s Audi, said Bernard Soriano of the California Department of Motor Vehicles.

Lexus, Mercedes-Benz, and Audi are all luxury brand vehicles.

Soriano said Audi was the first to apply for the permits, followed by Daimler and then Google. All the permits were issued Tuesday, the first day they were required by California, which has the largest population of any U.S. state.

A few other automakers and first-tier automotive suppliers are in the process of filing for the permits, Soriano said Thursday.
