Volvo Cars has initiated its Drive Me public autonomous driving experiment in Gothenburg, Sweden, with the production of the first vehicle to be driven in the experiment.
The autonomous Volvo XC90 SUV was built at Volvo Cars’ special manufacturing facility in Torslanda. Instead of relying purely on the research of its own engineers, feedback and input from real customers will be collected.
Volvo aims to further fine-tune its autonomous driving technologies and make its offering as relevant as possible to customers ahead of a commercial introduction around 2021.
