Self Driving Cars Will Last Only 4 Years – Ford

Several analysts believe that car sales will come down with the advent of fully autonomous cars.  However, Chief of Ford Autonomous Vehicles Operations, John Rich believes differently. He came up with this view during and interview with the The Telegraph. As per Rich, selling vehicles will the least of problems with fully autonomous vehicles. He explained that studies have revealed that as the cost of travel per mile reduces, the number of miles travelled increases because people who were not served earlier also start getting service. As an extension of this theory he stated that autonomous vehicles would be continuously in use as they would serve more people which are under served right now. This would lead to an increased wear and tear and hence early and frequent scrappage.
