May 11, 2021—Volkswagen is working on a concept for self-driving capabilities to be active and billed on an hourly basis.

Kelly Blue Book reports that Klaus Zellmer, who is VW's board member for sales, marketing, and aftersales, offered the hourly pay concept in a recent interview.

The idea is that potential buyers could save a bit of money on the up-front feature package and spring for the optional self-driving feature later on.
