Zoox calls these mules VH1, 2, and up to 5. The VH is short for “vaporware horseshit,” Vance explains, “which is how a car blog once described the company’s technology.”


That car blog was Jalopnik, back in 2013, when Zoox had just came onto the scene. But I think it’s safe to say we’d be glad to see what Zoox is working on up close now, including whatever’s inside the box.

Also, you’re welcome for the name, guys.
