The automotive industry has been talking about self-driving cars for a few years now. Of course, we cannot say that we will see autonomous cars on the roads soon. This requires not only in the automotive industry, but also smart transport.
However, news from the automotive industry shows us that such cars are no longer fantasies. The robot car programme is a good example. Sherif Marakby, Ford's robot car boss, already says that in three years we will see Ford's first self-driving cars on the streets of Miami and Washington.
However, these are primarily Ford's robot taxis. The car manufacturer will use a specially built vehicle for this self-driving taxi. It will be ready in 2021. It is not yet clear how long it will be before we also see these robot taxis in Europe.
The car manufacturer does not want these taxis to wait for passengers. Instead, the robot taxis are expected to transport passengers and goods for most of the day. Ford's autonomous taxis should therefore be on the road as constantly as possible.
We are prepared for self-driving cars
The taxi will be a car with hybrid drive. However, it is too early to talk about fully electric robot taxis. For this, the car manufacturer must invest more for further development and, of course, be patient. Also the passengers who want a self-driving taxi.
Of course, we will also need floor mats for our self-driving cars, or self-driving taxis. As doormat pro we can't speed up technological developments but by providing high quality Ford car floor mats we will continue to protect you and your car and keep it clean.
We currently offer high quality Ford floor mats for the following models: Ford Courier, Ford Connect, Ford B Max, Ford C Max, Ford Fiesta, Ford Focus, Ford Kuga, Ford Mondeo, Ford Ranger and Ford SMAX. Besides Ford floor mats we also offer BMW floor mats, Audi floor mats, Opel floor mats, Mercedes floor mats and 3D floor mats for many other brands.
