Volkswagen Group will be introducing autonomous vehicles with its local Chinese partner Jianghuai Automobile Co (JAC) in Hefei, China.
In addition to introducing autonomous vehicles, both companies also plan to offer mobility services that include autonomous mobility services, autonomous fleet management, and robotaxis.
These services are part of a three-way agreement signed between Volkswagen, JAC, and the Hefei city government, as the Hefei city government plans to transform the city into a smart city.
However, no time frame was provided by Volkswagen for the introduction of its autonomous vehicles.
The partnership between Volkswagen and JAC can be traced back to 2017 when both companies established a joint venture to develop and assemble SEAT-branded vehicles and the joint venture’s Sol brand.
