Rinspeed will bring their self-driving Etos concept to Geneva for the first public appearance of the BMW i8-based creation in Europe.
The concept debuted at the CES in Las Vegas, showcasing the Swiss brand’s vision for the autonomous future.
There are plenty of crazy details around this re-imagined BMW i8 like its folding and retracting steering wheel, the onboard drone complete with a landing platform at the rear, a pair of 21.5-inch adjustable HD monitors for the interior, the list goes on.
A set of eight exterior cameras are used for the automated driving function, monitoring the surroundings of the vehicle with the system connected online to provide accurate information about the specified route, like real-time traffic and tailored warnings and notifications for the driver.
Speaking of online, the cabin now hosts Harman’s latest Connected Car tech, a system that “thinks along, is courteous, anticipates needs and on top of that provides perfect entertainment, connectivity and maximum safety”.
The Rinspeed Etos will make its European debut at the Geneva Motor Show on March 1.
