It may not arrive in dealerships looking anything like this, but for now, it's got our attention.
Nio's got a very pretty concept on its hands.
The Nio Eve is a concept that's less about driving and more about digital companionship.
Its central feature is an artificial intelligence interface that turns the commute into an extension of one's life.
The interior is laid out more like an office, with a single reclining seat and fold-out tables.
There are only two doors, and they slide open like minivan doors.
The car's glass can be used as augmented-reality displays, as well.
As you might expect, this concept is both autonomous and electric.
Nio plans to introduce a production model by 2020, but I'd expect plenty to change between now and then.
One thing concepts don't have to deal with is federal safety standards, which their production models must adhere to.
We'll see what happens in 2020, but for now, the Eve is one attractive concept car.
