No Human Driver Required: Volkswagen Showed Off an Autonomous Concept

Is it an ugly duckling or a smart concept vehicle for future? Volkswagen revealed its fully-autonomous concept at the latest Shanghai Motor Show claiming it to be the simplest vehicle ever. Dubbed the Sedric, it can deliver its passengers to the destination point after just touching the button, no more these bored human drivers!

It seems the development of completely autonomous driving becomes the trendiest strategy of the company, and Sedric is the first VW Group concept vehicle to prove it. The chassis and electrical stuff use the VW’s MEB architecture packing 60kWh battery to provide a range of approximately 400km. By removing a cockpit, the design team added some space for passengers, in order to achieve level 5 autonomous driving. Due to the so-called 2+2 person design, the interior floor space is used optimally. While Sedric is just a technical concept at the moment, this battery-electric self-driving machine is considered to be a powerful persecutor to our future driving.
