TOKYO -- The Nissan Motor-Renault alliance has partnered with American autonomous vehicle developer Waymo to explore offering self-driving transportation services in Japan and France.

The trio have signed an exclusive agreement to look into the details of services encompassing both passenger and freight transport, and Nissan and Renault will form joint ventures in both countries as part of the effort. Mitsubishi Motors, the third member of the Nissan-Renault alliance, will not initially be involved in the Waymo project but may participate later.
