There could be more than 10 million self-driving vehicles on the road by 2020, with significant breakthroughs expected starting in 2019, according to a new report from Business Insider Intelligence.




In its recent report, the company outlines growth of semi-autonomous and fully autonomous vehicles, as driverless technology continues to accelerate. Companies such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Audi, Ford, Toyota, and others are investing more money and research time into autonomous vehicles, though most interested drivers will have to likely wait until 2025 - if not later - for prices to drop.


The idea that autonomous cars are no longer something from a science fiction story is impressive, though the realization that it's just a few years away could scare drivers. However, automakers and technology companies plan to continue market the booming technology to skeptical drivers.
