Volvo XC90 to get level 4 autonomous driving technology in 2021

- 2021 XC90 to get level four autonomous driving
- To be produced at company’s facility near Charleston, South Carolina
- In talks with federal and state regulators to approve the self-driving system

By 2021, the next-generation Volvo XC90 will be offered with Level four autonomous driving. The vehicle will be produced at the company’s facility near Charleston, South Carolina. Reports indicate that Volvo will invest around $1.1 billion for its US operations and create around 4,000 new job opportunities over the years.

It is believed that the new system does not require driver intervention for emergency actions. However, it is be seen if the company will offer semi-autonomous or fully autonomous driving ability as it had been working on Highway Assist feature which functions on selective mapped routes. Reports indicate that the company has also collaborated with cab sharing aggregators such as Uber to work on complex technologies for its future models.   

The Highway Assist program uses cloud-based information that does not rely on vehicle-to-infrastructure communications system. The company is currently in talks with the federal and state regulators to approve the self-driving system. The company had also revealed its plans to utilise minimum of 25 per cent recycled plastic in every new car from 2025.
