Zetsche said that people who focus only on technology have not grasped how autonomous driving will change the society.

The capsule shaped car measures 17 feet in length while only 5 feet in height, reported CNET.

It has 26-inch wheels that are pushed to the far corners of the vehicle to maximize passenger space, said Zetsche.

There are six high-resolution touch-screen display panels on the doors that allow passengers to use touch, gestures, or eye movements to navigate, browse, or see outside the car.
