Californian startup Nuro is expanding its production. The company produces two models of autonomous last-mile delivery vehicles. These vehicles can be used for anything from groceries to dry-cleaning. With it, daily errands can be automated.

With $40 million to spend on a factory, Nuro plans on setting up a 125,000 square-foot facility in Nevada. This would enable the company to produce tens of thousands of delivery vehicles. Alongside the factory, this major investment will also include a chunk of the Las Vegas Motor Speedway. This speedway will be converted into a complex test track. The factory and test track are expected to be operational in 2022.

Auto Trendy’s take:

It is wise for Nuro to invest in a close-by test track. Especially since the company manufactures autonomous vehicles, it is crucial that they are held to a certain safety standard. There is no doubt that this track will be handy. The only thing left to see is Nuros popping up everywhere assuming that the demand will meet the upcoming supply.
