The Geneva Motor Show had a few stars, like the self-driving ride-sharing electric car and car-gyroplane hybrid, but none of them are quite as colorful as the Volkswagen SEDRIC. This self-driving bus stole the show for the second year in a row, looking even more fun than the driverless Volkswagen hippie minibus. #automagic
The concept vehicle is a cute, futuristic self-driving minibus designed especially for school kids. It’s made for ride-sharing, allowing parents to push a button and summon a convenient school shuttle.
It seats four passengers, has bench storage, and an OLED screen for entertainment. By creating a safe way for kids to travel to school, the SEDRIC electric bus has the potential to become a part of the urban landscape.
“The SEDRIC mobility concept has the option of using the OneButton control element to call up a self-driving electric vehicle at the touch of a button and conveniently traveling from door to door. This allows the school run to be carried out in a simple, safe and fun journey,” explained Volkswagen.
With a brand new paint job, it certainly looks more like the yellow school buses we’re used to seeing. Check out the Sedric presented at the Geneva Car Show 2017.
