Infiniti to add autonomous features to most new models

Infiniti plans to add autonomous highway driving features to most new models, president Roland Krueger said at a conference in China recently. The technology will be included in new vehicles as they are rolled out one by one, Krueger told Reuters.

So far, the Q50 sedan is the sole model that has a steering system that allows for autonomous driving on highways only, at a speed above 60 km (37 mph).

Speaking at a global industry summit, Kreuger encouraged other automakers to pursue autonomous driving technology as a way to improve safety and cut congestion. Nissan has said it plans to have as many as 10 autonomous vehicles in production by 2020.
