AutoComplete: Michigan hopes to legalize completely driver-free cars
today is Wednesday, August 31st and here's what's making news on Roadshow.
Michigan is preparing to become the most autonomous-friendly state in the union.
Three senate bills are expected to leave committee as early as next week, one of which will allow completely driver-free autonomous vehicles on public roads.
Currently the law requires a driver to be present in the event anything happens.
But as automakers prepare to roll out fully autonomous leaps in the next few years, Michigan wants to get ahead of the curve.
Michigan state senate could vote on this bills as early as next Tuesday.
Audi brought the A3 E-Tron plug in hybrid to the US as the 2016 model but it's already receiving a refresh.
Its exterior has been updated to match the 2017 A3 sedan, while the interior features a wealth of new tech options including virtual cockpit, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.
It starts at $38,900 and standard equipment includes a panoramic sunroof, a backup camera, and autonomous emergency braking.
Missing deadlines isn't very professional, but it can happen to the best of us, and it just happened to Tesla.
After having more than a month to compile information related to a fatal autopilot accident, Tesla missed its submission deadline with federal regulators.
Tesla contends that it was late because it was a last minute request from the feds, which is likely true, because regulators agreed to a one week extension.
The investigation is still ongoing, and there's no estimate of when it will conclude.
