Mercedes-Benz Debuts Two Brand New Ideas at CES 2019 Las Vegas

It is rumored that Mercedes-Benz shared its plans for the future at the 2019 International Consumer Electronics Show with an interesting autonomous car concept. Referred to as 'The Vision Urbanetic,' this innovation is a self-driving platform that can be combined with one of two bodies, both of which have a rather bizarrely futuristic aesthetic. While the first option can hold up to 12 people, the second can carry up to 10 cubic meters of cargo.

Mercedes-Benz's curious autonomous car concept loosely outlines the shift of luxury vehicle manufacturers to categories of ride-hailing and product delivery -- "two of the most lucrative uses of autonomous driving technology." Although The Vision Urbanetic is not near completion, the idea is surely a testimony of the expanding market and how automakers are attempting to stay relevant in it.
