    BMW won't rush automated driving because the tech 'must be 100% reliable'

    MW has been an industry leader in automated driving technology, but you might not be able to tell that from its current stable of products. Though certainly tech-savvy, BMWs don't offer — save the self-parking 7 Series — the same level of semi-autonomous tech as some of its competitors. There's good reason for that, though.

    Unlike Tesla, which is beta-testing its Autopilot suite of self-driving systems on public roads with customers, BMW will wait to implement automated driving technology in its cars. "We can offer automated driving on the motorway up to 120 kilometers per hour," BMW Chief Executive Harald Krüger told Handelsblatt. "But our technology must be 100 percent reliable.”
