Mercedes-Benz Unveils Self-Driving Luxury Concept Car

Mercedes-Benz unveiled its latest concept car Monday at CES 2015, a self-driving speeder it calls the F 015.

Google, and other car producing companies have done it. And now, German car producing giants Mercedes-Benz is taking a ‘good-look’ at driveless cars, with luxury infused.
During the just concluded Consumer Electronics Show-CES in Las-Vegas USA, the company unveiled its first futuristic, self-driving capsule-like vehicle. The automobile is 17 feet long, 5 feet tall, and keeps passengers connected to the outside world.

The vehicle named the F015 ‘Luxury in Motion’, highlights the German automaker’s vision for autonomous driving. The  electric car concept vehicle looks nothing like any of the company’s past automobiles.
While unveiling the F015 during a stage presentation at CES, Dieter Zetsche, the chairman of Daimler AG and head of Mercedes-Benz Cars, said the vehicle was geared toward future roads populated with “exclusive cocoons on wheels.”

“Anyone who focuses solely on the technology has not yet grasped how autonomous driving will change our society,” Zetsche said. “The car is growing beyond its role as a mere means of transport and will ultimately become a mobile living space.”

“Cars will turn into mobile homes in the very best sense of the word,” Zetsche said, adding they would allow passengers to work, play games or “catch up on much-needed sleep, ” he added.
