Actually their top speed will be of 25 mph (40.2 km/h). However the vehicle promises to compensate by the special features destined to make driving a unique experience. Basically Google cars will come with a removable steering wheel, a special accelerator and brake pedal.

Also a new software is expected as the company states it is highly unlikely the cars will use the same technology as the self-driving Lexus RX450h crossover. As far as statistics go it seems that Lexus RX450h crossovers have registered nearly a million autonomous miles on public roads.

According to the company their autonomous driving fleet has managed to be truly amazing as it has logged around the same miles as an average American would drive in 75 years.
