Expensive car owners will rush to buy self-driving cars, says Volvo chief

Samuelsson said Volvo had had a deluge of interest in its “Drive me” trial in London next year, when 100 drivers will test its new autonomous driving technology on motorways and major roads. The Swedish carmaker plans to start selling vehicles equipped with the technology as early as 2020. With industry experts estimating that 90% of road accidents are caused by human error, Samuelsson said that the technology would save lives and bring substantial benefits to society, with less time wasted by drivers sat in traffic.
