Google has announced it will start building an exploration truck in the UK and plans to build an entire fleet of them by 2021.
The explorer truck is being built in partnership with the UK’s biggest aerospace firm, Boeing, which will be responsible for the vehicle’s safety, durability and other requirements.
The trucks will be powered by two Rolls-Royce turboprop engines, with the engine itself being powered by the same Rolls-Hampton engine used on the Falcon 9 rocket.
Google says the explorer truck will be capable of a maximum speed of 65 mph, with a range of about 400 nautical miles.
The Google explorer truck has a capacity for about 8,000 pounds (2,000 kilograms) of payload.
Google also plans to use the truck for commercial and humanitarian missions.
Google has invested more than $1 billion in the exploration truck program, according to the company.
The company said it will use the vehicle for two types of missions, cargo and science.
Google will be flying the explorer trucks in the US, Europe and Asia, and the company will test and evaluate the vehicles.
It is unclear when the vehicles will be built, but Google said they would be available for use from 2021.
Google is also working on a second exploration vehicle, which would be able to carry much more payload, and which will likely go into service by the middle of 2021.
