Mercedes-Benz turns autonomous driving into reality
The new F 015 Luxury in Motion unveiled at the 2015 CES in Las Vegas is the visionary answer of Mercedes-Benz to a rapidly changing world. By 2030, the number of mega-cities with more than 10 million inhabitants will increase from about 30 to over 40.
“The single most important luxury goods of the 21st century are private space and time,” explained Dieter Zetsche, Chairman of Daimler and Head of Mercedes-Benz Cars. “Autonomously driving cars by Mercedes-Benz shall offer exactly that. With the F 015 Luxury in Motion, this revolutionary concept of mobility becomes tangible for the first time.”
Mercedes-Benz USA is expected to announce later this week it will move its headquarters to the Atlanta area from New Jersey, ending a more than 40-year connection to the state where it employs about 1,000 people.
