Chevrolet self-driving EV concept debuts at Shanghai

The concept was developed in Shanghai by GM’s Pan Asia Technical Automotive Center (PATAC) joint venture and is intended to show a “unique, intelligent vehicle for tomorrow’s younger consumers by utilizing innovative car networking technology”.

As well as its standout design, which brings crystal laser headlights and taillights, dragonfly dual swing doors, magnetic hubless wheel electric motors and a wireless auto-charge system, the FNR also features a range of sci-fi style features. These include iris recognition start, which means drivers can start up the car just using their eyes.

Meanwhile sensors and a roof-mounted radar map out the surrounding environment for driverless operation, with the vehicle's front seats able to swivel 180 degrees to face the rear seats in this operation. The driver can switch to manual mode through the gesture control feature.
