The person said that "Level 2 Plus" autonomous driving capabilities will be added to some models in the initial scope of work. Level 2 semi-autonomous cars have technology that can take care of almost all aspects of driving, from steering to acceleration and braking, but still let the driver take control when needed.  Many companies in China are now rapidly working on autonomous driving technology. Earlier this month, SAIC Mobility launched an autonomous robotics test ride in Shanghai as a trial run in partnership with Momenta.
