The story on the Beeb includes the quote

"This is really a car designed for very specific urban environments. It’s a car that’s going to take people at 20-30 mph through city centres."

I don't know what the link to the Financial Times explains as they want money before they let me read the article.

Why do people keep bringing up the "Tesla death crash" story? Autopilot is only fancy cruise control, which is Level 2 autonomy that requires the driver to monitor the car at all times. Ford are aiming at Level 4 and AC wants Level 5 .
