The head of Volkswagen recognized a significant lag behind Tesla

Herbert Diss, the head of Volkswagen, recently expressed concern about the American company’s leadership in the autonomous electric car segment.

Tesla fleet is quite large, which greatly helps in the development of unmanned technologies – data from all vehicles are used to develop autopilot. At the same time, a software update is released once every 2 weeks, which makes it possible to apply the experience accumulated by one electric vehicle in recognizing the road infrastructure on all cars.

At the same time, Volkswagen faced problems with the release of its ID.3 electric car – it was precisely because of software problems that the company postponed the release of the hatchback. To this end, the concern intends to form a new structure, which will allow, if not surpassing, then at least catching up with Tesla. However, this will take a lot of time.
