Ford is gearing up for a future with self-driving / autonomous cars designed to carry both packages and passengers. This project comes along with Ford’s vision to launch a fully autonomous car for ride-sharing by 2021.
Our team has decades of experience developing and manufacturing vehicles that serve commercial operations such as taxi and delivery businesses. That extensive experience and those existing relationships are playing an integral part in our self-driving effort. We are entering relationships with a deep understanding of a partner’s needs and desire for a vehicle that has the capability to fulfill many use cases and the durability to maximize operation time,
