The Jeep Electronic Accessories (Jeep) company, whose name means “electric workstation,” has been expanding its business.
Its latest products, unveiled in New York City this week, include electronic gadgets and the first electric vehicle that can be operated by the passenger side, according to a press release.
The new product, a Jeep Compass, is a fully electric, fully autonomous vehicle.
The company is also working on a Jeep Wrangler with an autonomous driving system.
Jeep’s chief executive officer, Brian Chesky, is bullish about the Jeep Compass’s prospects.
“We have an amazing platform and we believe that we can take the Jeep brand to the next level,” he told reporters on a conference call.
Chevrolet has also been working on autonomous vehicles, but has not released any official details.
There is a wide range of autonomous vehicles that have been tested in the United States, including Toyota’s Camry, which has a range of more than 100 miles, and Nissan’s Leaf.
Tesla Motors, meanwhile, has been pushing for self-driving cars, with plans to begin production in 2019.
Automakers are also working to develop autonomous technologies to help them meet customer demands, including autonomous driving in commercial trucks.
On Tuesday, Ford announced it will build the world’s largest self-drive vehicle, an SUV, to be sold in 2019 and 2020.
