Nissan CEO says autonomous cars will be ready by 2020
YOKOHAMA, Japan (AP) — The CEO of Nissan Motor Co. says the automaker will have vehicles packed with autonomous driving technology by 2020 but whether people will be able to drive them on roads is up to government regulators.
Many of the world’s automakers, and companies outside the auto industry such as Google, are working on technologies that allow cars to navigate on their own.
Nissan is promising one by 2020, and its chief executive Carlos Ghosn told reporters on Monday that good progress is being made toward that goal.
He says the bigger hurdle to such vehicles becoming readily available to consumers is approval from regulators around the world.
