LeEco unveils its self-driving electric supercar
25 April 2016
LeEco partners with Faraday Future to develop an electric sedan with autonomous technology, designed to be a challenger to the Tesla Model S.
The Chinese technology company, LeEco, unveiled the LeSEE at an event in Beijing earlier this week. There was very little said about the cars specifications, LeEco only stating that its vehicle can reach 130mph, a little behind Tesla’s Model S specifications. However, LeEco has stated that the final product could quite possibly beat Tesla in ‘all aspects of performance’.
On the design side, the LeSEE features a rounded design with a giant LED screen on the front of the vehicle. The screen can be used to display information on the driver or passengers.
The interior has a wide cabin space and sports a futuristic looking steering wheel with a lit up centre. The rigid seats are made from memory foam that can mould to the passengers body for maximum comfort. A suite of cameras have been integrated to replace rear-view mirrors.
Complementing the IoT (Internet of Things) hype, the LeSEE is compatible with a host of bespoke apps for entertainment. LeEco founder Jia Yueting showed off its voice recognition capabilities, he used his phone to order a ride and even showed the vehicle parking itself.
The car also features fully-automated driving, facial recognition and a system and path recognition.
