CES Roundup: Top 3 Debuts From the Auto World's Most Important Tech Show
With the Detroit Auto Show still going on, you may have forgotten about all the amazing concept cars and technology that debuted at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas last week.
CES has essentially become another full-fledged auto show, with automakers from all over the world displaying the latest technology they have to offer.
Here are the top three debuts from this year’s CES:
BMW i Vision Future Interaction Concept
This cool BMW i8 concept is a platform for the German automaker to show off all the interesting technology it has in development. All the mirrors have been replaced by cameras and live video feeds, the infotainment is controlled by gestures and voice prompts, and the car can pretty much drive autonomously.
Volkswagen BUDD-E Concept
The VW BUDD-E is a thoroughly modern take on the iconic Type 2 Microbus. The new-age hippie van is packed full of technology and is built on a new modular platform that will be used in all future VW electric products.
Faraday Future FFZERO1
This crazy-looking race car concept won’t be made into a real car, but it does preview technology that will one day trickle down to a more realistic production car.
