In order to help celebrate BMW’s 100th anniversary, BMW second company Rolls-Royce has rolled out a fresh look at their vision of the future in automation with their new vehicle, dubbed the 103EX. The 103EX is a high-concept futuristic proposal for the company’s future in fully autonomous luxury transportation, taking advantage of the latest in technology and design to bring ease of use and style to users. Using Rolls-Royce’s Eleanor virtual assistant and autonomous driver, the interior of the cabin is steering free, allowing a wide space for drivers to relax on sofa-like seats. The vehicle will be emission-free, running off of an electric powertrain, and using 65 individual pieces of aluminum for wheels, rather than standard rubber tires. While the vehicle is not currently scheduled for retail release, it is a shining concept of the future of automation for Rolls-Royce and cars in general. Check out the videos to see specifics on the 103EX!
