BYD has received conditional testing license for level 3 autonomous driving on high-speed roads

BEIJING, Dec 27 (Reuters) – Chinese electric vehicle giant BYD (002594.SZ), said on Wednesday it has received a conditional testing license for level 3 (L3) autonomous driving on high-speed roads.

BYD was given the first such license in China in July, the company said in a statement on its official Weibo account.

Earlier in December, BMW Group (BMWG.DE) said it had gotten a test license for L3 self-driving on high-speed roads in Shanghai, while Mercedes Benz (MBGn.DE) said it would carry out L3 tests on designated highways in Beijing.

IM Motors, the EV brand of state-owned Chinese automaker SAIC Motor (600104.SS), has said it is also applying to China’s industry government for product entry of L3 cars.
