Mercedes promotes Drive Pilot standby driver ("Level 3") system


Mercedes has been promoting the new Drive Pilot system in high end models. Equipped with LIDAR, it will do the full driving task on freeways in traffic jams in daytime good weather.

In this new article I discuss whether the so-called "level" 3 (or any of the levels) make sense, and what this product means, good and bad.

How many sales estimated in the two states with this option of Level 3, in the low hundreds, maybe 200 or 300?

But presumably a stepping stone for them to other states. But they did the work to build it for Germany, why not be able to sell it in California?
