(English) Yandex, a leading Russian IT company, and Hyundai Mobis, a subsidiary of Korea’s Hyundai Motor Group, have unveiled a prototype autonomous car on the next year’s Hyundai Sonata model chassis, Firrma.ru reported. The first driverless Sonata is currently being tested on a driving range and will soon hit the Moscow city roads.
Yandex has plans to work with other new models by Hyundai and another Korean car manufacturer, Kia.
“The Hyundai Sonata vehicles will add to our autonomous fleet which currently comprises 50 Toyota Prius based cars. By the end of 2019 we want to have at least a hundred vehicles in our fleet,” a spokesperson for Yandex said
