AutoComplete: Honda prepares its boxy NeuV concept for CES 2017BMW plans to start testing self-driving cars, and a startup nearly triples the VW E-Golf's range.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. CES is coming and Honda wants to make sure you check out its vision for the future in Vegas. The automaker plans to show off its new V concept. Or is that noivy? Alongside a whole host of interactive Displays, some of which will show off its efforts in artificial intelligence. No matter what you call the concept, Honda's move sounds like a party because they're also promising a robotic motorcycle. BMW already has its own car-sharing service but its self-driving car development is still a little lacking. That's soon to change though, as the company will start testing autonomous cars in Munich, with other cities soon to follow BMW knows it can't be the first company to hit the market, but as it tells Reuters, it hopes to be the coolest one. We'll see about that. Volkswagen just bumped the E-Golf's range by 50% for 2017. But it has nothing on Kreisel Electric, the Austrian start up sandwiched a 55 kilowatt hour battery into a 2016 E-Golf, using it's pack management and cooling technology. The results, it took the VW's range from 83 miles to more than 200. The company isn't yet offering an aftermarket upgrade, but it claims to be talking to major automakers about a potential supplier position. This is one startup we'll be keeping an eye on.
