One gets to view through a glass display screen instead of a steering wheel. The engine is said to be at the rear of the car with the luggage compartment just behind the front wheels.

 Regarding the wheels, the company has not provided any engineering reason on why they intended to cover them so. It did mention that the design tends to make the car seem elevated ensuring its passengers to have a `Grand Arrival’. The vehicle seems to have some really in-built and advanced features such as the display screen together with an artificial intelligence called `Eleanor’ which tends to act as a personal assistant.

Making use of the 20 feet build, Rolls-Royce has carved an extra storage space between the cabin and the front wheels wherein the storage compartment tends to open whenever motorist disembark from the vehicle, automatically.

Rolls-Royce is not certain regarding the kind of engine it would be utilising, 100 years from now though it is sure that it wishes its riders to remain to reign in luxury during that time. Taylor states that `the Rolls-Royce patron will continue to be famous figure in the future.

 The Rolls-Royce Vision Next 100 will pay a key role in these people’s lives, guiding and conveying them effortlessly through their life’s journey in an exquisite sanctuary where they can reflect in peace ahead of arriving in the grandest style’. Overall, this self-driving concept car can be considered as an exclusive invention and will remain to be the very first visionary vehicle created by Rolls-Royce.
