Autonomous Car

Does Autonomous Technology Make Any Sense For Alfa Romeo?

Like it or not, the company is working on it.

According to Alfa Romeo and Maserati CEO Harald Wester, FCA is working on a Tesla Model S-style Autopilot system for the Giulia sedan. Wester says that he is "absolutely convinced that once fully autonomous vehicles are established, the more people will appreciate driving on a road free of traffic and enjoy driving their car again." Alfa's approach to autonomous driving will be to make it as fun to drive as possible, when you want it to be.

This strategy makes a fair bit of sense. That way, the car can drive itself in traffic, but then let you take over when you want to have fun. Don't get too excited though. Wester says that fully autonomous technology from the FCA group can't be reached until 2024. Honestly, Alfa Romeo should be more focused on getting its cars into production. An autonomous Alfa Romeo is so far in the future, that we almost don't care. Seriously Alfa, just finish building a car before you try to make it drive itself.
