Volvo Car to make Gen 2 Pilot Assist standard on new S90 sedan

Volvo Car is introducing an advanced version of the company’s semi-autonomous Pilot Assist software on the new Volvo S90 sedan and will make it standard on all S90s sold in the United States.

Pilot Assist was first introduced on the 2016 Volvo XC90 and allows the vehicle to accelerate, decelerate, come to a complete stop and steer in road conditions with clear lane markings based on the car in front up to speeds of 30 mph (48 km/h).

The second generation Pilot Assist on the S90 will allow these functions to work up to highway speeds (80 mph, 129 km/h) without the need for a pilot car.

The all-new Volvo S90 will make its public debut at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week and will be available in US retailers later in 2016.

This is also a way to get volume rebates for Volvo. Tesla does the same. Autopilot sensors and computers is really expensive stuff if you just make a few thousands of them. It needs to get into every car made this also simplifies production that there are less configuration options to be checked at the factory floor.
