Ford Motor Company and Volkswagen AG are expanding their global alliance to include electric vehicles—and will collaborate with Argo AI to introduce autonomous vehicle technology in the US and Europe.

In 2017, Ford announced it would invest $1 billion over five years in Argo AI—an artificial intelligence software startup founded by former Google and Uber leaders—to develop an SAE Level 4 virtual driver system for the automaker’s autonomous vehicle coming in 2021, and for potential license to other companies.
