These CES 2016 transportation innovations range from affordable electric cars that make commuting a more eco-friendly endeavor to personal mobility robots that help consumers navigate the urban environment with ease.

Although electric vehicles are nothing new, CES 2016 saw the unveiling of the world's first all-electric car with the release of the Chevy Bolt. There were also a number of other automobile innovations such as BMW gesture-controlled vehicle, Harman's autonomous car system and Audi's virtual dashboard. This kind of technology not only signals a change in the way that cars are produced, but also how we will drive in the near future.

Beyond the automotive industry, there are a number of CES 2016 transportation innovations that give consumers new ways to navigate the urban environment. These gadgets are designed to serve as an alternative to cars in places where owning your own vehicle may no longer be necessary. Some standout examples include a collapsible electric scooter, a smartphone-controlled skateboard and even a personal transportation robot.
