as mentioned in Chinese-backed car manufacturer NIO showcased its EP9 electric supercar last November in London, but this weekend at SXSW, the company unveiled its concept consumer autonomous vehicle, the NIO EVE.
The company noted that it plans to bring the car to the US market by 2020, according to Warrior.
Just a concept at this stage, the EVE is a look at what the company feels will be future of autonomous vehicles.
US CEO Padmasree Warrior described the vehicle as a companion and a mobile living area that will take people from place to place.
NIO also intends to have its passengers interact with an “artificial intelligence engine” called NOMI to control the vehicle, although the car can be driven manually if needed.

First look at the NIO EVE self-driving electric concept car
Hot doesn’t even begin to describe the NIO EVE, a self-driving electric concept car straight out of a sci-fi movie that’s packed from top to bottom with every buzzy new technology imaginable.
As far as autonomous concept cars go, the EVE checks basically all the boxes for “fictional dream car from the future.”

That said, if cars look anything like the EVE in the future, it’s gonna be pretty awesome.
Like all concept cars, it’s just mostly just a beautiful dream.
as declared in Intel previously said it will spend $250 million over the next two years toward the development of autonomous vehicles, but a $15 billion deal is far more significant.
Intel is acquiring Mobileye, a company that specializes in chips for vision-based autonomous vehicles.
BMW, Intel, and Mobileye have all partnered to deploy 40 autonomous vehicles for testing on public roads later this year.
Update, 7:40AM ET: Article updated with confirmation of Intel’s Mobileye acquisition.
Intel and Mobileye’s technology is to be tested on roads in the US and Europe.
