Ford, VW continue talking; doubt raised that agreement is near on self-driving car pact

Despite a report that Volkswagen plans to invest $1.7 billion in Ford’s autonomous vehicle partner, a person close to the negotiations tells the Free Press that the talks continue with no specific numbers on the horizon.

“Both parties are still at the table and will be for months before a deal is reached, if a deal is reached at all,” said a person who is involved with the meetings but not authorized to comment publicly.
