With au­ton­o­mous cars just around the corner, Ford sees a fu­ture where pri­vate car own­er­ship will be less im­por­tant. The group has an­nounced it’s buy­ing Char­iot, a San Fran­cis­cobased crowd-sourced shut­tle ser­vice to which it al­ready sup­plies vans. Ford plans to have fully au­ton­o­mous taxis in use by 2021 fol­lowed by pri­vate sales of au­ton­o­mous ve­hi­cles in 2025.
