BEIJING – China’s capital city has given the green light to German auto maker Daimler AG to test self-driving cars on real roads, making it the first international car maker to be granted such a license in Beijing, the company said on Friday.

Beijing has given Daimler, owner of the Mercedes brand, a permit for highly automated driving (level 4) test area road use in the capital city after extensive close-course testing, the company said in a statement.

China has issued licenses allowing self-driving vehicles to be road tested to several auto makers this year in Shanghai and Beijing, including Shanghai-based SAIC Motor Corp, electric vehicle start-up NIO and tech giant Baidu Inc.
