When you try out the features of Bosch’s concept car for yourself, you get a sense of how different the car of the future could really be. 

Bosch demonstrates car technology of the future with CES concept

To be clear, this is a static technology demonstrator that I'm trying at CES, more of an interior concept than anything else, with the road projected on screens ahead.

The German supplier has no plans to build its own vehicle. But as automated driving technologies advance and the car’s behaviour changes, the interior will be the place where drivers will notice the biggest physical differences. 

Bosch describes it as a “third living space” – after your home and workplace. For one of the concept’s designers, Janine Schlink, who spends too much of her day stuck in Stuttgart traffic, that idea is all too real.
