Study: All cars will be self-driving

California Gov. Edmund G Brown Jr., state Senator Alex Padilla stand by a driverless car they arrived in at Google headquarters in Mountain View, Calif. in 2012.
Sales of self-driving cars will balloon from 230,000 in 2025 to 11.8 million globally by 2035, a new study predicts.

That means because of the cumulative sales picking up speed every year, there could be 54 million self-driving cars in use around the world in 2035, says consultants IHS Automotive.

It’s no longer a question whether such cars will be built, but how soon and how many. Already, virtually all major automakers are working on self-driving cars. The experiments started with technology giant Google and have spread to traditional auto companies. The IHS report comes as the Consumer Electronics Show is about to begin in Las Vegas, where Audi and Toyota unveiled self-driving technologies last year.

By 2050, IHS boldly predicts nearly all vehicles — both private and commercial — will be self-driving. It calls them SDCs.
