Tired of driving?
With the F 015 Luxury in Motion by Mercedes-Benz, the vehicle drives itself, transforming the cabin into a personal haven where time and space are the ultimate luxury.
The car has four rotating seats that allow face-to-face seating, as well as six display screens built into the front, rear and side panels.
It’s a digital arena that allows passengers to interact with the vehicle through gestures, eye-tracking and high-res touch-screens.
It’s currently still a concept car but it’s a solid example of what luxury car companies will be looking to recreate as driverless technology evolves.
It does not have an estimated starting cost listed yet. mercedes-benz.com.
