Honda steps up its game in the automobile market!
During an online press event on March 4, 2021, Honda launched ‘Legend’ in Japan. Legend is the first automobile from Honda that’s equipped with Level 3 Autonomous Driving technology, and it looks like Honda understands the dangers of automated vehicles, which is why the company is taking a slow approach towards producing vehicles from the Legend lineup. According to reports, only 100 units will be produced for lease sales, and the asking price of these models would be 11 million Yen.
In a statement issued by Honda, the company explained Legend’s Traffic Jam Pilot system, which can control the braking, acceleration, and steering of the vehicle under certain conditions.
