  • Sedric the start of the mobility world of tomorrow 
  • Innovative concept for safe and sustainable mobility and cross-brand ideas platform
  • Autonomous vehicles as a key element of the future strategy for the Volkswagen Group

On the evening before Auto Shanghai 2017 (19 – 28 April) the Volkswagen Group is presenting Sedric (Self-Driving Car) alongside a large number of new models and studies of individual Group brands. This is the first Concept Car from the Group and therefore showcases an integrated mobility concept for the road traffic of tomorrow. Sedric was presented for the first time at the Group Evening in Geneva on 6 March. It is a Concept Car that has been developed from scratch for autonomous driving. Sedric provides a concrete insight into the innovative form of individual mobility that can be used by everyone but which can nevertheless be geared to personal needs and aspirations – available at the touch of a button, easy, sustainable, convenient, and safe. The new joint venture between the Volkswagen Group and Mobvoi is intending to develop Sedric and its integrated mobility concept with a personal digital assistant based on artificial intelligence.
