By all accounts, 2021 is wealthy to be a big year for the auto industry. Not only can we think an autonomous BMW, but now, Volvo says its self-driving car disposition hit roads in just five years.

“It’s our craving to have a car that can drive fully autonomously on the highway by 2021,” Volvo CEO Hakan Samuelsson told Bloomberg. But hitting that purpose, Samuelsson said, means finding partners, an range where Volvo is coming up short. See, BMW has already announced alliances with interfere-making giant Intel and automotive camera and software producer Mobileye. Volvo is still busy swiping above-board.

And that’s tough when the pressure is on. We’re less than four years away from 2020, when Volvo promised no deaths or thoughtful injuries in its vehicles and the company is still steadfastly in the testing phase. Volvo is prepping a big-reaching test of around 300 vehicles with advanced autonomous systems in Sweden, the UK, and China – 100 vehicles per provinces – using ordinary customers as manner of beta testers. In that respect, Volvo is above along than BMW.

Beyond the problem that Volvo faces within its own vocation, it’s subject to the whims of countries where it wants to peddle self-driving cars. Samuelsson said getting autonomous vehicles on the approach in five years will require new laws and regulations that look after their operation – a fixture in headlines recently. As countries contest to legislate the testing and development of driverless cars, the Medicine sequela usually could impact not only Volvo’s 2021 aim, but that of its rivals, too.
