Noteworthy is the different type of roof mounting. A Velodyne Puck lidar can be seen, plus a roof-shaped mount with openings, which probably house the cameras. A GPS tracker is at the back end of the roof mount.

Hints for the name of the company testing with that vehicle are highly appreciated.

UPDATE: It may be Lyft! The car was spotting at the Lyft offices.

UPDATE II: I spotted the vehicle a few days later again on San Antonio Expressway.
