  • Volvo Is Off to Offer fully Self-Driving Cars to the Luxury buyer customers

The luxury buyer customers will have the opportunity to buy self-driving cars by Volvo.

The self-driving cars are getting popular day by day as people are investing more and more to bring the comfort zone in all of the daily activities including driving.

Many companies such as Tesla and Apple are already working on their self-driving cars and have developed the piloting techniques as well. 

Volvo is not getting behind in the technology and is going to offer self-driving cars in the next five years to its customers, according to TechCrunch.

The company is all set to offer the auto pilot response by the addition of $10,000 in the actual price of vehicle. Thus the company would provide the self-driving feature to the customers who are fond of luxurious cars and are able to pay for it too. 

The Volvo CEO shared the details of the plan and said that the company is looking forward to work on the company’s five year timeline. In the timeline Volvo will sail the auto pilot module in other brands of cars too like that of Ford Motor Co.

Tesla we all know is featuring the autopilot mode in its cars but they require the drivers to keep their hands on the steering wheel. Volvo on the other hand is looking to build a system that will allow the comfort of a fully auto pilot car.

Companies like that of GM and Ford are planning to launch self-driving cabs in a few years. Thus Volvo is trying to bring about a concept that has a more personal touch to it.

The company is planning the self-driving mode to be included in certain cars first upon the request and payment of customers. After that they are going to offer it to other rivals and then the feature might become commercial at end.
