As you might have guessed, it also has a fully autonomous mode so passengers can just sit back and relax.

Sony teamed up with Bosch, Continental, Genetex, NVIDIA, and Magna to develop this car. Other features include: side-view cameras, ventilated front disc brakes, and rear seats with screens on the headrests.
