BEIJING- An autonomous driving electric vehicle may not be in the sky any time soon however it could one day start to look a bit like The Jetsons’ flying car – a glass bubble without the long hood that is a signature feature of today’s gasoline-fueled cars.
The technology is a key game changer has the prospect of electric motor which is a simple and compact propulsion system which allows automakers to eliminate the hood and the ample room underneath needed for a bulky internal combustion engine, an engine cooling apparatus, and complex transmission gears.
The motor technology has a combination of both autonomous and electric technology advances, meaning the car no longer needs a hood and what the motor industry calls the the crash zones.
Karim Habib, the design chief for Nissan’ premium brand Infiniti, told Reuters in an interview speaking of the next step in the motor industry is flying cars, he said, ” That is the next logical step,”
“It is definitely the next step, particularly if you imagine a world of zero accidents with autonomous drive technology fully working. If cars will never crash, the ultimate most efficient (shape) of a personal mobility could be a glass cube.”
