Volkswagen Group’s negotiations with Ford and its autonomous affiliate Argo AI over a collaboration on autonomous cars are near fruition and a deal could be announced as early as July, people familiar with the situation said.

Ford CEO Jim Hackett has said autonomous cars and other emerging mobility services could grow to a $10 trillion market.
