InMotion Ventures, Jaguar Land Rover’s venture capital arm, has invested $3m in US-based self-driving taxi service Voyage.

The backing will support Voyage in developing a global service, with the aim that anyone can summon an autonomous vehicle and reach their destination safely.

Voyage has trialled its self-driving taxi service in a gated community in San Jose, California.

The company is licensed to test self-driving cars on Californian roads in 2018 and is refining its technology and service with feedback from users.

In this funding round, London-based InMotion Ventures invested alongside Khosla Ventures, SV Angel, Initialized Capital, Amino Capital and Charles River Ventures.

Oliver Cameron, chief executive of Voyage, said: "We are thrilled to have support from InMotion Ventures in this successful funding round.

"The investment will help our business grow in technical and operational expertise, as we expand into new communities globally. This is an exciting year for us with further passenger trials planned."
