BERLIN (Reuters) – The CEO of Volkswagen (DE :), the world's largest vehicle manufacturer, expects autonomous vehicles to be available for sale between 2025 and 2030, he told a magazine.
Herbert Diess pointed to improving the performance of computer chips that are needed in autonomous cars, while developments in artificial intelligence are also accelerating the process.
"It is foreseeable that the systems will soon be able to cope with the complex situations of autonomous driving," Diess told Wirtschaftswoche's weekly magazine.
Diess defected from BMW in 2015 and supported Volkswagen in the reform after its diesel scandal with an investment plan for electric vehicles amounting to 73 billion euros (87 billion US dollars).
