Autonomous cars to reach market after 2025, says Volkswagen CEO Diess

BERLIN (GERMANY) – Herbert Diess, CEO of Volkswagen, the world’s largest vehicle maker by sales, said he hopes autonomous automobiles to reach showrooms between 2025 and 2030.

Diess referred to the improving performance of computer chips needed in autonomous cars apart from developments in artificial intelligence as the factors that are speeding up the process.

“It is foreseeable that the systems will soon be able to master even the complex situations of autonomous driving,” he told the Wirtschaftswoche weekly magazine.

Diess defected from BMW in 2015 and has helped Volkswagen to reform after its diesel scandal with a 73 billion euro ($87 billion) electric vehicle investment plan.
