Mercedes-Benz calls its new concept car the F 015 Luxury in Motion.
But the all-electric, fully autonomous-drive vehicle is more than just a car; it's also a rolling lounge that's wired to the max.
The luxury automaker unveiled the prototype at the Consumer Electronics Show on Monday in Las Vegas, offering a peek into how connected cars may be in the future.
Among the F 015's features are:
- Inside door panels with web-connected touch screens that can pull in exterior views from 360-degree view cameras;
- Front seats that swivel to face backward, even when the car is driving, and
- The ability to track the car's location while it parks itself, via a smartphone app.
"I always have access to the car. I can see where it is on the road, in the traffic, in the area," said Mercedes' Vera Schmidt, who worked on the F 015 design.
