Groupe PSA, as a first French carmaker, received a licence to test autonomous vehicles on open roads in China.

Groupe PSA already has some experience with autonomous driving in  Europe, where they have conducted testst of autonomous drive since 2015, which now will be upgraded to be in line with special conditions of Chinese road traffic.

For the Groupe PSA, as one of the leading players in the development of vehicle connectivity and autonomous driving technology, it will be a special challenge to integrate  its technology into Chinese traffic ecosystem with different environments, infrastructure, map system and road users' habits.

Carla Gohin, Vice President, Innovation of Groupe PSA, says: »Obtaining the license for autonomous driving tests on open roads in China is a remarkable milestone for Groupe PSA, as China is the largest automobile market in the world and is witnessing the boom in the development of autonomous driving technology.«
