Nothing can ever replace the joy of driving but there’s added value to this vehicle, you just have to see it for yourself. The Mercedes-Benz F-015 “Luxury in Motion,” introduced Monday at the Consumer Electronics Show, is a dream come true for lovers of luxury. If one is looking for a bit more convenience and relaxation in their lives, this is the car they have been waiting for. The F-015 eliminates the need for driving altogether. This is the first self-driving luxury automobile. A new era in luxury automotive is upon us.
Autonomous driving as a technological concept is itself difficult for one to comprehend, but Mercedes employs a new and revolutionary idea in conjunction with the technology: “Anyone who focuses solely on the technology hasn’t yet grasped how autonomous driving will change our society,” says Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars Dr. Dieter Zetsche, “The car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a mobile living space.”
The car’s look may prove jarring to some; it has a purposefully futuristic exterior that looks straight out of some dystopian sci-fi film. Design nuts on the other hand will be watering at the mouth. The look of the car is sharp and difficult to ignore. One needn’t know the revolutionary idea behind the vehicle to see it and instantly know that it is something different. The exterior design perfectly fits the automobile’s concept.
At the press conference held in celebration of the car, Mercedes assuaged much of the worries surrounding the F-015 and autonomous driving technology in general. How will this car react in traffic? Really well, apparently. Bright blue lights along the front grille turns on signaling to pedestrians that the vehicle has “seen you.” It even can display a fake crosswalk on the street. What do you think of this innovative concept? Please let us know.
