Do you want a car that can drive sideways? Well if so, you’re in luck. The AVTR is a car made by Mercedes-Benz that is capable of driving sideways! This car has more than 350 kilowatts. The AVTR was unveiled in 2020 and costs only $39k. It has 469 horsepower and a driving range of 435 miles. This car doesn’t have a steering wheel but instead has a central control console that reads your heartbeat and breath. The AVTR is powered by graphene batteries, which are 12 times faster than lithium-ion batteries. This type of battery is also used in Teslas. The hard part is that there are currently no graphene-based batteries on the market. The graphene battery is 100% recyclable. The VISION AVTR has transparent doors and the wheels light up due to LEDs. The seats are made of vegan leather such as old clothing, flags, and PET plastic bottles. These types of seats are used in other luxury cars such as the 2020 Range Rover Evoque and Jaguar 1 PACE SUVs. According to Mercedes, this car can drive sideways and diagonally. The VISION AVTR was inspired by the movie Avatar (2009), as the tires are based on the tree of souls. Production began this year. Lots of people are looking forward to the release of the car.
