Ford’s fully autonomous self-driving car “coming in 2021”

Ford has said it will mass-produce a fully autonomous self-driving car without a steering wheel by 2021.

Ford said it would double its investment in its research centre in the city, as well as making sizable investments in technology companies in the autonomy industry.

The announcement, described as “transformational” by Mr Fields, signalled an era when Ford sees itself, particularly in cities, as a company that provides an ad-hoc service rather than focusing solely on selling the cars to the general public.

“There will be a growing per cent of the industry that will be fully autonomous vehicles,” Mr Fields said.

“Our goal is not only to be an auto company, but an auto and mobility company.”

“Can you even imagine, the experience inside a vehicle where you don’t have to take control changes everything, In wait of 2021 “
