This week’s news is all about strategies, terrible marketing, new models and one massive festival for petrolheads and electricheads. It’s been a good week, except for that football thing.

Wild One Max

Car.co.uk Weekly News - April 30 2021

If you’re hoping for news of a great new family runabout this week, then we’re afraid you’ll be a bit disappointed because it’s all mostly been about performance. That and the big headline-grabbing story of the week, the possible arrival of ‘self-driving’ cars on UK motorways this year. It’s really just an advanced driver assistance system that will only be able to drive at speeds up to 37km/h in a single lane of specific sections of motorway, but you’ll be allowed to take your hands off the wheel while they do so, provided you pay attention so you can take control back again if something happens. So no watching Game of Thrones or other box-sets and certainly no having a nap. We’re not sure what everyone’s getting excited about.

Ford launches ‘Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC’

Ford launches ‘Ford Autonomous Vehicles LLC’

The Ford Motor Company has announced the launch of its new organisation that is to be responsible for the research and development of automated vehicles, with a view to aggressively expand its place within the AV market. To companies like Google, Uber and now Ford, self driving vehicles are being seen as something of a Holy Grail, with the two tech companies spending huge amounts of money and effort on what many other companies considered to be little more than a pet project.
