The autonomous driving revolution is taking a big step forward with the new Mercedes E-class.
The sedan will be able to steer by itself at highway speeds, which Bloomberg notes is a feat formerly only seen in tests.
The new cars will hit the market in March 2016, and drivers will actually feel the steering wheel move in their hands if the feature is turned on. In tests, the car was able to go through a dark tunnel at 80 mph without any serious problems.
This is the latest in a series of self-driving car announcements over the past few months from major automakers. General Motors has said it will have autonomous cars on the road within a decade, and Google is starting to road test their autonomous pods.
