HOW MUCH WILL AN AUTOMATED VEHICLE COST?

Exact prices will vary depending on the situation, but the most advanced technology likely will start out more expensive, followed by a drop in prices as the supply increases. Carmakers hope to make automated vehicles more affordable for all. However, it remains to be seen how much a fully automated car will cost on the open market.

Right now, many vehicles sold in the $20,000 to $25,000 range already include advanced features such as automatic lane centering, automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control. Meanwhile, some advanced features can be purchased in new cars with different “trim” packages ranging from $1,000 to $5,000.
