  VW I.D. Vizzion Concept to Put a Sporty Face on Level 5 Autonomy at the Geneva Motor Show Volkswagen's Geneva Motor Show concept gives hope to the autonomous cube haters.As functional and efficient as these cubic soulsuckers might be, a future populated with robo-boxes isn’t remotely exciting.

There's a white, illuminated VW badge on the grille and suicide doors with no B-pillars blocking the entrance for getting in and out of the vehicle.
