Here are the top car stories from CES 2018

Cars
Here at Road Show, we're starting up 2018 with a trip to Las Vegas for CES, the Consume Electronic Show, which this year has so much automotive stuff. We think it should be called the Cars and Electronic Show. Here's a look around at some of the highlights. Byton unveiled their 5G connected self driving electric concept car that seems to be combining all the hottest tech we've seen in In the automotive world over the last few years. We have level three economy ready to go. Level four on the horizon. This could be a game changer in the next few years. Harman showed off a concept for a modular autonomous car that can swap from hauling freight to ride sharing all on the same chassis. We might not see anything like this on the road soon. But it shows that manufacturers are gonna have to think well and truly outside the box To keep alive in a changing landscape. We had a ride long in the ferreted future FM91 and got to experience the full brunt of the claimed 2.39 second zero to 60 sprint. It's put our concerns about the car being vaporware at ease, for now at least. We took a ride with Lyft in their partners Aptive, that could see your favorite rideshare show up with no one in the front seat. It made it through the crazy streets of Las Vegas without issue so soon that cab ride might just be driverless. Hyundai wants to invent a new category of car with the future utility vehicle, or FUV. To you and me, that means hydrogen fuel cell SUV built completely from the ground up for fuel cells. Hyundai claims that Nexo will have the world's most efficient fuel cell system around So not everyone is going electric. If you've always wanted a Corvette but have committed yourself to going all electric, Genovation has a solution. The GXC swaps out the roar of an internal combustion engine for an electric motor fitted with a seven-speed manual transmission. Genovation claims this will give both blistering acceleration and higher top speeds. We just wanna have a go. And finally, you know that electrification is really beginning to catch on when pickup trucks are starting to make the switch. The workhorse W-15 takes what should have been a last bastion of oil burners and drags it to the modern era. With a potential range of 310 miles, thanks to a BMW sourced internal range extender. This could be an electrifying option for those of you with heavy duty jobs. That's it from here in Las Vegas. We'll see you next week in Detroit. [BLANK_AUDIO]
