Ford's willingness to work with the developers of self driving technologies, and the fact the Fusion also allows electronic drive-by-wire control of all the key driving functions without extra hardware, has resulted in the Fusion being the vehicle of choice.

Any car with electric steering and throttle control only needs brake actuator hardware added in addition to the sensors. Interestingly, Tesla apparently does not mix regenerative with mechanical braking as most hybrids do. I think all their regenerative braking is done with the accelerator pedal and the brake pedal does the  mechanical brakes.

That is true.  If the Energi is put in L mode it also has regeneration on the accelerator pedal.
