Would you buy a self driving car? Researchers find nearly half of all Americans WON'T

The Cox Automotive Evolution of Mobility Study found that consumer awareness of driverless vehicles has skyrocketed - but that people still want to be able to drive themselves.

49 per cent of respondents said they would never own a fully-autonomous car, known in the industry as a Level 5 vehicle, researchers found, up from 30 per cent in 2016.

It also found 84 per cent want to have the option to drive themselves even in a self-driving vehicle, compared to 16 per cent who would feel comfortable letting an autonomous vehicle drive them without the option of being able to take control.
