The Foldable Steering Wheel seems to be right out of a science fiction movie

 

The electric powered sedan has voice activation and memory foam rear seats, which means that for utmost comfort, the seat will conform to the shape of the passenger. The autonomous self driving mode of the vehicle when activated, pulls in the fold-able steering wheel into the dashboard. Seems right out of a science fiction movie right?

The Conventional Front Doors & the Rear-Hinged ‘Suicide Doors’

 

The car is equipped with the standard conventional front doors hinged at the front whereas the rear doors are ‘suicide doors’- doors which are hinged at the back.

The backseat passengers can also enjoy their own TV monitors.

Touch Screen TV Monitors are equipped with LeEco’s Entertainment Systems

 

The company claims a top speed of 130 mph or 210 kmph. The front fascia of the car is a smart screen which depicts the car’s performance and other parameters. With touchscreens behind the front screens that provide LeEco’s own compelling entertainment system for the rear seat passengers, this car may well revolutionize the way people travel.

The screen is also linked to a pair of C-shaped headlights, but the concept suggests this vehicle doesn't have the traditional front grill. The arrangement of the headlights is mirrored at the back by the tailights and there also seems to be a central diffuser. The official video shows that the car does have traditional front doors, but its rears are 'suicide doors', which have hinges on the back

With cameras replacing conventional mirrors, the LeSee has C-shaped headlights as well as taillights and bids adieu to the typical front grill.

The Roof of the Car along with the Front & Rear Windscreen looks like a Singe Unit

 

Don’t be surprised if you feel that the front and rear windscreen seems like a single unit with the roof, which seems to have been furbished entirely out of glass.

CEO Jia Yueting displayed the car’s impressive self-driving & self-parking features using voice commands via a mobile app. The proud CEO added that the car will also have come with face-recognition and self learning, though didn’t show these features.

Hopes for the Future

The company is gearing up this electric powered beauty to give cut-throat competition to Tesla Motors Model S. It claims that LeSee will outshine its Tesla counterpart in all areas of performance.

LeEco is looking to expand it’s business across multiple platforms and has invested in the car-hailing business as well with the intention of forming a fleet of self driven taxi’s. The front lights of the car through a multitude of colors will indicate its availability.

LeEco CEO Jia Yueting (pictured) revealed this innovation in Beijing today by commanding the car to drive out of a container, but with voice commands via a mobile app. 'When everyone is questioning us over our ability to develop a car like this and is laughing at us, we are still able to be here and show you this car...I am so emotional,' Jia said at a LeEco launch event for several products in Beijing
