Ford chief executive Jim Hackett
made news a few days ago when he seemed to pour a bit of cold
water on the carmaker’s autonomous vehicle ambitions, telling the
Detroit Economic Club that “we overestimated the arrival” of
self-driving cars. Hackett, who was once in charge of the
autonomous vehicle unit at Ford, said such cars are still
forthcoming from the company in a couple of years as planned, but
their applications will be narrow. Making it a reflection of Ford,
as other carmakers not named Tesla are currently doing, sort of
dipping their toe into the self-driving waters — as opposed to
diving in head-first.
A new study from HarrisX sheds some possible light on why that’s
the case, with a full third of the Americans polled saying they
believe self-driving cars are a bad idea.
