BMW secures first approval for combining Level 2 and Level 3 autonomous driving systems

Product updates
Regulation/policy

  • BMW announced that it has received approval to combine Level 2 and Level 3 autonomous driving systems in its upcoming BMW 7 series, reportedly becoming the first carmaker to offer both systems in a single vehicle.

  •  The car will include the BMW Highway Assistant (Level 2), which enables the vehicle to operate autonomously at speeds up to 130 kmph on motorways with structurally separated carriageways, and the BMW Personal Pilot L3 (Level 3), which can take over driving in specific situations, such as traffic jams, at speeds up to 60 kmph.

  • BMW claims that the combination of these systems will provide drivers with more freedom and comfort on long-distance journeys while still requiring their attention and readiness to take control when prompted by the car. Both systems will be offered in an optional package exclusive in Germany for EUR 6,000 (USD 6,412).
