Car electronics supplier Delphi went coast-to-coast in 2015 in a self-driving Audi Q5 sport-utility vehicle to prove the autonomous automobile had arrived, according to Bloomberg. Now, Delphi is shifting from stunts to selling.

In Las Vegas this week at CES the company will give test rides to hundreds of potential customers in driverless Audis over a course of rugged terrain and tunnels. The goal is to walk away from this critical conclave with a handful of hot prospects for its self-driving system.

“The last two years at CES have been more about just showcasing the technology and saying, ‘Look what it can do,’" said Glen De Vos, Delphi’s vice president of advanced engineering. “This year, the discussion is all about the path to production."
