AutoComplete: Uber brings self-driving cars to San Francisco
Here's what's making news on Road Show.
Uber brought a fleet of self-driving cars to San Francisco, even though it may lack the license to operate them without a pilot.
Starting this week, folks who order an UberX might end up with a self-driving Volvo taking them to their destinations.
Uber does not yet have a permit to run driverless cars in California, but it believes it doesn't need one because, for the time being, there will always be an operator in the driver seat just in case.
President Elect Donald Trump has added two auto industry titans to his list of advisors Tesla CEO Elon Musk and Uber CEO Travis Kalanick are now part of the strategic and policy forum, which is a group of business leaders that will regularly convene to give their views to help Trump craft his administration's policies.
Both Musk and Kalanick have made critical statements about Trump in the past So these should be some interesting meetings.
The Takata airbag inflator recall continues to grow this week as the feds add a whole bunch of supercars to the growing list of affected vehicles.
The new entries include the Lexus LFA, McLaren 570S, Tesla Model S, McLaren P1 and Ferrari's entire 2016 and 2017 lineup.
