Peter Fleischer said in an interview with the Focus: We want to come also to Germany. The faces and vehicle registration plate will be burled to protect the privacy.

The Deutsche Post (German Post) is goint to start a similar project.

OK German Post, show us what you got and what you can pull off in competition with Google's engineers, stop pre-announcing... ;)

I made an interview with someone of Google France (=> last article published on zorgloob.com), and license plates will also be blurred here.

Haha cool. Great picture too!

I wonder when we'll see "The Making Of..." pictures live on Google Maps. :D

It looks like the same car does all of the US. Because the same vehicle (or same model/color) car is in the streetview for Milwaukee, Utah, Chicago, etc. Looks like a Chevy Aveo.

I don't think the Aveo comes in a hybrid. So much for "do no evil".

Is it possible that there's one team of people doing this with one car across the US?

I have some pictures from an upcoming google easter egg that I helped to produce. I have posted a few good shots of the street view car, but I have been asked by the team that is bringing you this not to disclose too much. Life is more fun without spoilers anyway!
