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).
