    No-one is interested in such a car? Imagine, going on holiday by car. Get in, drive during the night and sleep while driving.

    I'm certainly interested in such a car and autonomous cars in general. If someone can pull it off, then it's certainly Volvo - especially with Geely backing them. Curious to see how well it'll do in the first real-world tests.

    It's a pipe dream and that's about it. We are a really long ways from a car like that even being legally able to operate on the roads in most countries.

    Also, I have to imagine that car is gigantic based off the renderings I've seen of people in it.

    One can dream. I really like the concept.

    Who would actually be able to sleep in it? I’d be way too paranoid that something was going to go wrong.

    Instant coffin. Seriously.

    "When I was your age..." small cars were considered death traps. Sure, people do die in any type of vehicle. As morbid or insensitive as it seems I'm making it, that's just what it looks like.

    Autonomous driving, is basically no different to anyone sleeping while someone else is driving(I'll add flying and being on a cruise ship). The passenger doesn't have control while sleeping.

    I'm not saying that I trust to sleep in such a car but I find the concept intriguing.
