This isn’t the 1970s and this is not Domino’s Pizza. Nuro has always been focused on low speed, electric vehicles to deliver packages. The newest vehicle, pictured above, is called the R2 and received an exemption earlier this year to operate as a driverless vehicle. It is testing and operating the R2 on public roads in Arizona, California and Texas.
