Honda has declared that it will be the first automaker to put out level 3 self-driving vehicles. It’s a bold move that gives the company a competitive advantage against most automakers — even Tesla only has level 2 self-driving cars at the moment.

Level 2 self-driving takes care of steering and acceleration for the driver, albeit without making any decisions. Level 3, on the other hand, helps make important moves, like overtaking slower vehicles on the road, though drivers will still have to be alert and ready to take control at any time. Honda calls its autonomous driving system the “Traffic Jam Pilot,” made possible by the Japanese government after being safety-certified where Honda agreed to provide six-months-worths of driving data. The feature will be included in Honda’s Legend sedan, which the company promised will arrive no later than March 2021.

In other news, Honda has announced its exit from Formula 1 after the 2021 Season.
