Nissan's Shape Shifter by 2020

Nissan IDS Concept Car

Millennials have dismissed car ownership and the automotive industry is nervous. Here comes the push-back, Nissan expects their autonomous IDS concept car to be available by 2020.  With a manual mode for conventional driving and an autonomous mode for partying, who wants to drive?  There's just one other issue: why own an autonomous taxi? Instead call the IDS Fleet like you would call Yellow Cab from your smartphone. Volvo's atonomous car will be available in 5 years.  Update 2-3-18: Google's CEO in Davos Switzerland said: "AI is more profound than fire or electricity".                 -LS
