UAE-based supercar manufacturer W Motors have created much buzz with their offerings, whether it be the iconic Lykan HyperSport or the Fenyr SuperSport, which was limited to a production run of only 110 cars.

And now the first and only automotive developer in the Middle East is set to release a self-driving vehicle.

Designed to be on the road for Expo 2020 in Dubai, the W Motors’ fully-electric MUSE is set to debut at Auto Shanghai 2019.

The fully-electric MUSE features a Level 4 / Level 5 autonomous driving system, innovative user interfaces and cloud-computed connectivity, as well as several interior configurations catering to different business needs and consumer requirements. It will be fully produced in Dubai, UAE by W Motors at the all-new production facility of which the first phase is set to be completed in the last quarter of 2019.

The announcement comes in line with the recent introduction of the Dubai Autonomous Transportation Strategy, which is expected to bring AED 22 billion in annual economic revenues by reducing transportation costs, carbon emissions and accidents, raising the productivity of individuals and saving hundreds of millions of hours wasted in conventional transportation.
