June 10, 2016—Honda Motor Co. displayed its new self-driving prototypes on Wednesday at its testing facility in California, saying the company is already on its way to offering semi-autonomous safety functions to the mass market.

Although the automaker has been less vocal about its plans for self-driving vehicles than some of its competitors, Honda said it has been quietly building semi-autonomous features that are already being rolled out in model year 2016 Acuras and Civics.

With the current roll-out of semi-autonomous functions, which it says will pave the way for full autonomy on highways by 2020, Honda says it differs from rivals, whose self-driving efforts have centered on their luxury models.
