Lucid CEO says it will take decade to deploy robotaxis on road

SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) – Peter Rawlinson, chief executive of electric car start-up Lucid Group, said on Thursday it will take a decade for self-driving taxis to be deployed on the road.

“I think we’re 10 years out before we see fleets of robotaxis. They ain’t coming anytime soon even with the most advanced sensing systems in the world,” Rawlinson, a former chief engineer at Tesla Inc, said at the Reuters Events Automotive Summit.
