Default Volkswagen Group's Humanised Autonomous car that you can talk to!

Hereís an interesting thing. Not for its planned autonomous capabilities or its cartoon insect shape, but for the fact that it was developed by staff from multiple Volkswagen Group brands and is badged Volkswagen Group, not just VW.

Sedric is the VW Groupís equivalent of the hateful Google car, built from the ground up as an autonomous vehicle. Pretty self-explanatory when you consider the name: self-driving car. Thereís no steering wheel, no driver and absolutely no driver enjoyment to be had, although maybe weíre being a bit unfair.

Senior Volkswagen execs at the Geneva show say itís about urban mobility for people whose driving days might be over due to age or injury, or for those people for whom sitting in the back of a taxi involves too much forced cabbie chat.

Ultimately, the various mainstream VW Group brands will develop the car in their own ways with their own styling teams, but all will share the same humanised experience. Not only does it have a human name but it will also be interactive. Occupants will be able to Ďtalk to Sedricí about the destination, traffic conditions, estimated journey time and so on.
