Both the electric and self-driving car industries are nothing new anymore to consumers. Even though they are not considered as mainstream modes of transportation yet even after decades of their introduction, but their level of acceptance in the market in general is still highly positive. So more car manufacturers are joining in the bandwagon in view of positive response.

This is far faster than I think anyone expected companies to get autonomous vehicles to market, but with Tesla breathing down traditional manufacturers' necks, I think they feel the push to hurry the tech out there. There will be a big advantage in the next age of motoring, to the company that establishes itself early as the brand for self-driving vehicles.
