Maserati to Use Autonomy Tech from BMW-Led Alliance
Future cars offers by Fiat Chrysler Automobile NV’s Maserati unit will control their autonomous driving capabilities with technologies developed by BMW AG.
The technology is being created by a coalition launched in 2016 by BMW and Israel’s Mobileye NV, which is now a part of Intel Corp. The group’s aim is to develop open standards for control systems used by self-driving vehicles.
FCA joined the alliance in 2017. Chairman John Elkann tell a conference in Italy that Maserati will use technology developed by the group for semi-automated driving on highways.
Elkhann didn’t say when Maserati will debut the technology. But the coalition said last year it aims to deliver a fully developed autonomous driving system by 2021.
Hyundai Motor Co. is looking for a domestic partner to mass-produce the fold-up Ioniq electric scooter it unveiled at last year’s CES show in Las Vegas, a source tells The Korea Herald.
To know that 3,000 cars have been delivered since October 2015 would undoubtedly result in a shrug: in 2017 Toyota delivered 387,081 Camrys, so that 3,000 is less than one percent, and this is in one year, not just over two.
Mazda, the Little Car Company That Can, has been working on a number of important fronts of late.
