Volvo AB aims to launch an experiment involving self-driving cars in China in which up to 100 such cars could be deployed, the Swedish automaker said on Thursday.

The planned experiment will see local drivers test the cars on public roads in everyday conditions, Volvo said in a statement. It will be conducted in limited driving situations such as on expressways and highways, company executives said.

Volvo, wholly owned by China's Zhejiang Geely Holding Group Co, is currently scouting for a city that could provide the necessary permissions, regulations and infrastructure to allow the experiment to go ahead, the company said. The automaker did not say by when it hopes to conduct the tests.
