Dieter Zetsche:
“Of course we are already testing autonomous cars at our own facilities. We most recently became from a city in California the possibility to participate in a real-life test which is a very big and important step for us.”

“Again good news: we are the first company to receive a license to road test autonomous cars in Beijing. Not one of the easiest challenges, but that’s a good test. We are happy because China is the biggest market for us. And when we go for autonomous driving, we have to make sure that it works in China. Therefore this testing is extremely precious for us.”
