The manufacturer of autonomous vehicle systems EasyMile has just raised 55 million euros from the funds Searchlight Capital Partners, leader, McWin and NextStage AM mainly. The historic investors Alstom, Continental and bpifrance, who contributed 34 million in 2017 and 2018, took part in the operation.
