Autonomous vehicles have been promised us for years — and while electric vehicles are accelerating the move toward full autonomy, it’s becoming clear that just like electric vehicle rollout predictions, autonomous vehicle predictions have been a little… well.. enthusiastic, especially when there are still many legislative hurdles that lie ahead for autonomous vehicles.

Part of the problem lies in the nomenclature used for current generation advanced driver assistance features like Tesla’s Autopilot, Cadillac’s SuperCruise and Nissan’s ProPilot, all of which are often confused as offering full autonomy when in fact they are at best, Level 3 (at least at the time of writing this).

So when will we see fully autonomous (Level 5) vehicles on our roads? Watch the video above to find out more, subscribe to our YouTube channel, and support Transport Evolved via Patreon.
