Audi refuses to use customers as test subjects for autonomous vehicle tech

Audi used an event in Germany earlier this week to reveal the world's first level 3 autonomous vehicle in the all-new Audi A8, confirming that its technology is tested and it won't be using customers as a test bed. The all-new Audi A8 is capable of driving itself as a level 3 autonomous vehicle in traffic jams, where the driver is able - technically, but not yet legally - to take their eyes off the road and focus on another task.

2018 Honda Civic Type R inspires autonomous lawnmower… and now we want one

As part of Honda celebrating 25 years of two of its most iconic nameplates – Fireblade and Type R – the Japanese brand has revealed two fully-functioning special-edition ‘prototypes’ of its robotic lawnmower known as Miimo. One is inspired by the latest version of Honda’s well-known CBR Fireblade motorbike (a bike which can trace its history back to 1992), but the other – the one we really dig – takes inspiration from the all-new Honda Civic Type R hot hatch.

Jaguar Land Rover to be electrified from 2020

Every Jaguar Land Rover product from 2020 onwards will be electrified to some degree, the British company has announced. The news, announced at the inaugural Jaguar Land Rover Tech Fest event in London, doesn't mean that every car or SUV made by the British company will be purely electric - rather, all new models added from 2020 onwards will have some form of hybridisation or electrification.
