GAC Group acquire licences to test AVs in Guangzhou
Guangzhou's local authorities recently issued a batch of licences that allow several companies to road test autonomous vehicles.
Guangzhou is the fourth tier-1 megacity in China turning on the green light to unmanned vehicle road tests following Beijing, Shanghai and Shenzhen.
Enterprises that were given the go-ahead include Auto X, GAC Group, WeRide.ai, Pony.ai and BlueDeep Technology. Some of them have already obtained such qualification from other cities: AutoX, Pony ai. and GAC Group were given the permission to conduct self-driving car road tests by local governments of Zhaoqing, Beijing and Chongqing in 2018.
