Britain’s automobile major, Jaguar Land Rover announced that its mobility services business, InMotion Ventures, will be investing USD 25 million in the US ride services company Lyft Inc, to aid the development and testing self-driving technology for cars.
     
JLR owned by Tata Motors is in competition to develop self-driving technology, which is envisioned to cut down costs of ride services and transform the transport industry by instigating a change in the pattern of consumption and use of cars.
      
According to the agreement made between InMotion and Lyft, InMotion Ventures will also be supplying Lyft with a fleet of Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.

InMotion's investment was preceded by a recent seed investment by the company in SPLT, a Detroit-based digital carpool business. SPLT works with Lyft Inc to provide transport for non-emergency medical purposes.
