BMW plans to release a fully driverless car by 2021

BMW made a big move to rival Mercedes as it plans to release a self-driving-car space on Thursday.

BMW said it will release a Level 5 self-driving car in 2021, Elmar Frickenstein, BMW’s senior vice president for autonomous driving, said during a panel discussion in Berlin that “Level 5 autonomy means the car can handle driving entirely on its own in any geographic location.”

The car will also release a Level 3 self-driving car in 2021, which means the car can handle most driving tasks but will still need a driver to interfere at times.

This move puts BMW in competition with Mercedes, which is another luxury carmaker brand that plans to start selling self-driving cars in 2020.

BMW has been the top selling luxury automaker for the past 10 years but few years back Mercedes came with a bang and gave BMW the toughest competition. Mercedes has sold 1.54 million cars in first 9 months while BMW sold 1.48 million cars.

BMW has said it will leverage its partnership with Intel and Mobileye to release a self-driving car in 2021.
