Rolls-Royce today debuted its vision for the next generation of luxury vehicles. The aptly-named Vision Next 100 (codenamed the 103EX) is complete with a seemingly endless number of thoughtful touches, and clever design innovations; it’s stylish and futuristic.
But the two-seated luxury car was missing two things worth noting. First, a steering wheel—or any controls whatsoever. The cabin is roomy, stylish, and lacks any obvious control mechanism for manual controls, anticipating a driverless car-filled future. Second, Rolls-Royce doesn’t actually have any commercial power source in mind for the car yet.

Clearly, the concept still has a long way to go before it’s road ready.
