Ford aims to sell self-driving cars to consumers by 2025. The company’s CEO and president, Mark Fields, said the firm would double the size of its teams in Silicon Valley and Palo Alto to work on the technology. He said: “The next decade will be defined by automation of the automobile, and we see autonomous vehicles as having as significant an impact on society as Ford’s moving assembly line did 100 years ago. “We’re dedicated to putting on the road an autonomous vehicle that can improve safety and solve social and environmental challenges for millions of people, not just those who can afford luxury vehicles.” Ford has already said it will create a self-driving vehicle for the commercial market by 2021, envisioned as a form of transport that members of the public could hail.
