I'm still failing to see the pull for regular households to own an autonomous car besides the fact that it's a status symbol. At the end of the day for the price that you're paying, it makes sense that you would opt for something cheaper because all you really need is something that gets you from point A to point B. I just hope that with the advent of self-driving cars that all the manual ones will still be available to the ones who don't have the budget for the high-end ones!
