The system can assume full control of the vehicle in certain circumstances. A typical example would be a relatively straight, wide motorway with properly marked lanes. Drivers don’t need to have their hands on the wheel and, if they’re feeling brave enough, they can even take their eyes off the road, but they must still be poised to take over the driving if prompted by the system. The autopilot automatically accelerates, steers, slows down and even dodges obstacles on a motorway. Level 3 autonomous driving was targeted in the 2017 VISION E, ŠKODA’s near-future concept car, which was the brand’s first fully electric-powered car.
