Rolls-Royce unveils its first driverless car
Rolls-Royce unveiled its first autonomous vehicle, the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100, at the Roundhouse in London yesterday.
The vehicle measure just over 19-feet long and is "powered by a zero emissions powertrain," according to a press release.
Passengers in the driverless vehicle can also enjoy the extra legroom offered by “the ample space created by the removal of the chauffeur,” the British luxury carmaker explained. The car was designed without a steering and a dashboard.
Moreover, the lower section of the car is "draped in a silk-like ‘Crystal Water’ colour scheme, its surfacing achieves a lightness that belies the vehicle’s size. This is automotive ‘Haute Couture.' From whatever angle the Rolls-Royce VISION NEXT 100 is viewed, it seems to float, whether at rest or in motion," according to the company.
