Meet Sedric, Volkswagen’s Vision for Self-Driving Cars

Volkswagen's latest vision of the future is a "subtly wedged shaped" electric and autonomous concept vehicle that looks a little like the portable cassette boom box players of the 1980s. Either that or a canister vacuum—minus the attachment.
The fully autonomous concept is called Sedric—a combination of the words self-driving car—and has no pedals or steering wheel. The vehicle can be summoned with the push of a button and shuttle individuals to their destination, just like the human-operated services Uber and Lyft do today.
This is the first concept from Volkswagen Group (VLKAY, -0.93%), the parent company of brands that include Volkswagen Passenger Cars, Audi, Bentley, Skoda, and Porsche. The Volkswagen Group calls Sedric a "cross-brand ideas platform," which is another way of saying this concept is a projection of its future strategy across the entire company....
