Ford and Volkswagen Take Self-Driving International

My latest post on Forbes.com discusses recent announcements from both Ford and Volkswagen to take their self-driving cars abroad.

“In recent days both Ford and Volkswagen have announced plans to work on self-driving vehicles outside of their home markets. In Ford’s case, the target market is Beijing, whereas the Volkswagen effort will take place in Israel.”

The ventures are different, and offer distinct insights into each company’s approach to autonomous vehicles. But the move to new markets may have a common inspiration.

“By launching self-driving cars in other markets, automotive companies might be able to stand out and gain local advantages, instead of racing to catch up to Waymo in the US market.”
