Haval's WEY X Concept previews full autonomous driving

The X is a fully electric vehicle with coupe-like styling, two large doors, a low roofline, small glasshouse and high waistline.

Chinese SUV specialist Haval is previewing its path to full autonomous driving, with a striking orange 'Concept X' SUV, scheduled to be shown at this year's Beijing motor show (Apr 27-May 4, 2018).

The minimalist SUV is badged as a WEY, in line with parent company Great Wall's luxury branding, and features future technology designed to meet 'Level Five' autonomous driving criteria.

Traditional keys and buttons have been replaced by a full biometric identification system. Traditional keys and buttons have been replaced by a full biometric identification system.

That includes a Star Trek-like 3D holographic assistant that acts as an automotive Siri of the future.

During bad weather, the artificial intelligence system will "mirror that of a highly trained human driver" to minimise the potential of an accident.

Other futuristic features include the exclusion of traditional keys and buttons which have been replaced by a full biometric identification system.

Through this system each registered user can create a unique set-up that suits their preferences from seating, to music and navigation.
