Home/Technology/World’s First Self-Driving Tesla Taxis

The world’s first fleet of fully self-driving cars may hit the streets a world away from where they were invented.

The government of the United Arab Emirates has purchased 200 Tesla vehicles to add to the Dubai Taxi Corp. fleet, Gulf News reported.

Though the combination of Model S sedans and Model X SUVs will initially be used in the “Autopilot” mode, which requires a human driver, they will come equipped with the hardware needed for complete self-driving capability, the news agency reported. The Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai plans to do a test run in the autonomous driving mode, with the goal of making Dubai the “smartest city” by 2020, Gulf News reported.
