One of the good things about creativity in the automobile industry is that you have a chance to actualize your ideas and watch from practical reactions the impact of your thoughts. This is exactly what car manufacturers are doing with their all-electric, autonomous concepts.
One thing is clear though, the ideas are worth all the effort and are indeed good enough for our planet at large. The Volkswagen Sedric falls squarely in the class of cars that are meant to tease our minds and democratize our thinking.
This is a small microbus mover that has been confirmed to go into production having been unveiled back in 2017. Back then, the company said that this rather small car will carry lots of Level 5 autonomous features. The name SEDRIC is an acronym derived from “self-driving car.”
The idea, according to the manufacturer was to have Volkswagen as the owner as opposed to passing it to individual owners. How that would work is meant to work still very theoretical but in these days of taxi-hailing that is not a far fetched idea.
Sedric is an exceptionally independent car that lacks a steering wheel, has no pedals, and moves away from conventional cockpit controls and instruments. According to Volkswagen, this allows “a completely new sense of well-being in the vehicle—a welcome home feeling.” It is in this car that you truly witness the use of the essence of voice commands.
There is a disruption taking place in the auto world and it isn’t silent in any way. It is being fronted by both small and large automakers. It is ultimately good for the public.
