[NEW YORK] Maserati will be the first of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV's brands to use self-driving technology being developed with BMW, Fiat chairman John Elkann said in a speech in Turin.

The technology will offer assisted-driving features on highways, Mr Elkann told an industry group Monday, without specifying a date for deployment in Maserati vehicles.

Fiat Chrysler joined the self-driving technology consortium led by BMW in 2017. It also has autonomous vehicle development partnerships with Alphabet's Waymo and auto supplier Aptiv.

Luxury sports-car brand Maserati, which saw its sales plunge 32 per cent in the first three months of the year, has been struggling with a lack of new product and a sharp drop in demand from China.
