Mobileye, Zeekr Seek to Bring World’s First Self-Driving Car to China

The vehicle will have level 4 autonomy.

Mobileye, of Intel Corp, and Zeekr, backed by Geely Holding, are working together to bring what they claim is the world’s first mostly self-driving car to China in 2024.

The companies announced the vehicle would have level 4 autonomy, Reuters reports.

The car will require a licensed driver, have a steering wheel but will possess the ability to drive itself in numerous situations. 

It will use six of Mobileye’s “EyeQ 5” chips along with the autonomous driving unit’s road-mapping data. 

Intel revealed its plans to take Mobileye public in the U.S. in mid-2022 as it attempts to match Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co’s chip production. 

Mobileye is also furthering connections with automakers such as Ford and Volkswagen, which intend to use its road-mapping data system.

Geely, a Chinese automaker, has entertained manufacturing cars in Korea that could be exported to the U.S. duty-free.
