The Los Angeles Auto Show opens to the public on Monday, and auto makers are clamoring to show off their latest wares; green cars, race cars, topless SUVs. Good old Volvo is getting in on the action, too.
It’s unveiling a future vehicle concept — equipped with autonomous driving technology — it says will give drivers back some time and make them safer. They’re calling it Concept 26 (26 refers to the minutes in the average commute time).
