Chinese selling $37,000 robo-taxi

No way I’m paying $12,000 for Tesla FSD if I have access to one of these.

Chinese technology giant Baidu has unveiled the next vehicle to join its self-driving taxi service, Apollo Go.

It says its new model, the Apollo RT6, has the the road skills of a driver with 20 years’ experience.

Each Apollo RT6 would cost 250,000 yuan (£31,000) - significantly less than previous models, Baidu said.

“This massive cost reduction will enable us to deploy tens of thousands of [automated vehicles] across China,” co-founder and chief executive Robin Li told the company’s annual technology conference.
