Mercedes’ Vision Tokyo is a self-driving ‘chill-out zone’

Standard

With new entry-level cars like the CLA and GLA, Mercedes-Benz has been chasing a younger audience, but its targeting of Generation Z — those born after 1995, most of whom can’t yet drive — takes this to a new level. Mercedes is imagining the Vision Tokyo not as a tool for getting around, but rather a “digital, automobile companion.”And it makes sense; these youths are more interested in staying connected and ‘sharing’ than driving. That said, they still have places to go. This is where vehicles like the Vision Tokyo come into play.While self-driving cars are many years away, Mercedes is already imagining the role of a luxury car maker in that world. So, future yuppies, are you excited for your Mercedes “chill-out zone?”
