Google’s Self-Driving Minivan Could Give You Back Your Life

Who chose the minivan? Key players from Google, the Divide by Zero Parent Teacher Association and Fiat Chrysler were locked in a room until they decided on the right vehicle. When they emerged with their great product idea, it was a self-driving minivan, not quite the Homermobile we expected, but close.

Wait, but why a minivan?  Because the PTA went in demanding a mini-van and nobody has ever won an argument with the PTA, not even brilliant minds of Google or Chrysler.  Not ultra-sexy but there are attractive features that led them to use a minivan. Compared to early rumors of a self-driving Nissan 370Z, the Chrysler van packs in a ton of features, leaving a load of of room for a dozen screaming kids and Google’s tech equipment.

So at this point, unless you have a couple of kids or wore those ugly Google Glass contraptions in public, chances are an unmanned Google mini-van won't win you over. 

Already dubbed a DREAM CAR! This "Google Mobile" lets you sleep late, have a mimosa brunch, and take a nap while the minivan drives the kids to those insanely early morning activities.  Before you bite into a bagel, your kids are already half-way to soccer or little league! But will the kids be safe in that weird driverless vehicle? Yup, this car comes with Google’s longstanding goal of working with partners “to bring this technology into the world safely.”

Look out world, because all the old school bells and whistles of the traditional American auto manufacturer have been tossed aside. Forget the crayon box and floor mats and think technology and HVAC. The Divide by Zero PTA spoke up for the demands of today’s parents. 

Your kids won't cry for juice because the van has 3 flush mounted arrays of 12 USB outlets ready to power whatever the challenge, and unlimited juice. The brochure shows USB arrays are standard features.

You swear you will never do it again, but it will happen. That dreaded long drive. Whether an hour or 3,000 miles cross country. You will love the built in NFC passenger recognition system, that sets individual climate zones automatically to each passengers preference, for up to eight passengers.

You love your family but the screams got to stop. The PTA knows all about that which is why the sound dampening upgrade kit may be the most popular feature on the vehicle. The kit includes custom soundproofing, sound absorption and noise reduction materials. Peace and quiet.!

An upgrade that is not standard, but why not? You're already spending over $100,000 on a car you won't drive. Think about this on that cross-country drive. Upgraded HG vans have granite countertops, and a Viking 7 Series oven with ducted exhaust fan that gets everyone fed, in style and comfort.

The self-driving vans are expected to be released to a limited test group over the summer and road-ready by September.  Look for free in vehicle wifi in early 2016. The basic model retails for $129,900, but so worth it.
