Every movement begins with a moment.
Although it is clearly early in chapter one of the smart vehicle story, we were amazed at what is available now or will be shortly. Here are a few examples:
Hyundai Tuscan Fuel Cell
The Tuscan Fuel Cell is the world’s first mass-produced hydrogen-powered vehicle. This electric-powered, 5-seater SUV replaces the batteries of traditional electric vehicles with hydrogen fuel, and it has a range of about 250 miles between fueling (currently only available in Southern California).
This Electric Golf concept has a number of features, but one of the most interesting is that it incorporates most of the mobile OSs, including Android Auto™ (Google®) and CarPlay™ (Apple®). Via these interfaces, the driver and passengers in the car are able to seamlessly use different OS mobile apps over the same infotainment system.
Audi A7 Piloted Driving Concept
The Audi A7 concept’s 560-mile test drive was concluded on Monday, January 6, following its journey from Silicon Valley. A lucky group of journalists were able to experience this autonomous drive, arriving in time here in Vegas to help kick-off CES 2015. The A7 concept can initiate lane changes and passing maneuvers, as well as accelerate and brake independently, essentially relieving the driver of driving duties at speeds up to 70 mph.
The Mercedes F015
This futuristic pod concept vehicle was created on the philosophy that technology should be crafted to serve and enrich our lives versus humans changing our behaviors to support the technology. The vehicle is a physical demonstration of autonomy, socialization and connectedness that reimagines the current transportation experience. While not available for at least a decade, this beautiful interpretation of the future of human mobility is a great example of form and function.
Over time, these combined technologies will remake the current energy and insurance industries, lessen the problems of congestion, pollution and accidents while simultaneously increasing our opportunities for socialization, productivity and content consumption.
