The Renault-Nissan Alliance wants to offer 10 vehicles with “significant autonomous drive functionality” by 2020, The Detroit Bureau reports from statements made by CEO Carlos Ghosn at the 2016 New York Auto Show.
Renault-Nissan engineers will work hard in the coming years to develop an increasingly advanced version of their current technology. They will start with cars that can operate in a single lane on limited-access highways without any driver intervention. After that, the vehicles will be able to pass and change lanes, and finally the Alliance’s first fully autonomous car will enter production by 2020.
We don’t know yet whether these will be all-new models or variants of existing ones. Count on us to keep you informed as soon as new details are made available.
