Car designers have come up with the perfect solution for all those motorists tired of traffic jams and lack of parking spaces.
The two-seat EN-V (Electric-Networked Vehicle) is designed to alleviate those common driver concerns - as well as address environmental issues, energy consumption and affordability.
And amazingly you don't even need to be in the driving seat to achieve all this.
Compact, environmentally-friendly and drives itself: The EN-V runs on battery power for about 25 miles on a charge, with top speeds of 25 miles-per-hour
The EN-V from General Motors can rotate 360 degrees and be driven in manual mode with a driver - or without.

Cities could, however, create EN-V-only lanes, or alternatively, create enclosed areas solely used by the vehicle.

Vision of the future: The Electric Networked Vehicle (EN-V) was unveiled at the Las Vegas Convention Center
