It has its own on-board power station that's got so much juice you could run your entire street off of it. The steering wheel is more akin to a video game system, with a pressure sensitive gripping system on the steering handles and an LCD screen embedded in the steering wheel itself. A huge front windshield lets you see almost everything. GM expects us to be driving these in 20 years.
