Volvo has signed a framework agreement with Uber on a three-year deal to sell it up to 24,000 cars that will become part of the ride-sharing giant's first robotaxi fleet.

Volvo said it will supply Uber with XC90 SUVs that will have the core autonomous driving technologies that Uber needs to add its own self-driving features.

"The automotive industry is being disrupted by technology and Volvo chooses to be an active part of that disruption," Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson said in a statement on Monday. "Our aim is to be the supplier of choice for AD [autonomous driving] ride-sharing service providers globally. Today's agreement with Uber is a primary example of that strategic direction."

Uber will use the self-driving vehicles in the U.S., but the company declined to name the cities or reveal when they will start picking up customers.
