I5, a new all-wheel-drive, plug-in hybrid car from Volkswagen, is being tested by the British National Grid in the UK’s capital, London.
The car is designed to be cheaper than petrol-powered models.
This new electric car has a range of just 5,000km, which is more than enough to travel to the airport and back.
I5 can also be fitted with a high-tech camera system, and can record its surroundings and keep it up to date.
Its high-speed range means it can reach speeds of around 220km per hour.
When driving, the car will drive itself in city traffic, and will only turn left when it sees an obstruction.
It also has a 360 degree camera system which can see through objects and pass information back to the driver.
With the addition of a rearview camera, the I5 is able to see where the driver is in the lane.
As well as being a better choice for those on the road, I5 has also been fitted with an autopilot mode that can automatically steer the car around a road hazard.
To make its battery last longer, the battery will last for four hours, which means it will take more than half the time of a petrol-based model.

What to look out for on the roads ahead?
As a whole, electric vehicles are getting more popular.
A recent survey showed that almost half of all households in the US have used an electric car, and there are around 80,000 electric vehicles on the UK road.
In the UK, more than 4 million vehicles have been registered since April 2017.
Some people might be tempted to just wait for the inevitable price drop.
For example, electric cars have generally been cheaper in recent years, but some models are more expensive than the petrol ones, particularly in the luxury car segment.
However, in the short-term, electric car prices are likely to be a little lower than petrol, with the average cost of an electric vehicle starting around £35,000.
If you want to get the most out of your investment, you might consider the new Audi Quattro.
Like the Audi, the Quattros electric SUV is designed for urban use, and offers more than 300km of range.
Although it is smaller than the Audi Quid, it has a wider range, and has the ability to travel further than petrol cars.
While the Quid has a more traditional styling, it is lighter and has more space to move around.
But the Quatro is the ultimate petrol-fueled luxury car.
At around £70,000, the Audi is more expensive, but the Quatro is a more economical and comfortable choice for the price.
Electric car sales are expected to reach more than $8 trillion by 2020, according to a report by the World Economic Forum.
Are there any drawbacks to owning an electric?
Unlike petrol cars, which are generally more fuel efficient than petrol ones due to their combustion engines, electric ones use electricity to provide electricity.
These include the batteries and the power steering.
Unlike conventional cars, electric engines are not as efficient as diesel ones, so the petrol equivalent of an average petrol car is about 70mpg.
Battery costs are also cheaper, as they are typically around 20pc less expensive.
On top of that, electric batteries have a range that is comparable to those of petrol cars for longer journeys.
Also, electric driving can reduce the amount of pollution you emit when driving.
Do electric vehicles have a carbon footprint?
While electric vehicles, and particularly the plug-ins that have come from companies like Tesla and BMW, are getting a lot of attention, there are some other types of cars that are still far behind electric vehicles in terms of environmental standards.
Firstly, there is the range of electric vehicles available, which include plug-ined cars, and also the petrol-electric hybrids, such as the VW Passat and BMW i3.
There are also plug- in hybrids, like the Tesla Model S, which have been designed to take the place of petrol-driven vehicles.
Lastly, there has been a push to develop electric cars that can drive themselves.
They are now being tested at the British Electric Vehicle Testing Facility, which has a wide range of models to choose from.
One of the most popular electric cars is the Audi Q3, which was launched earlier this year.
Audi’s Q3 has a new powertrain that is designed specifically to take over from petrol vehicles.
The new electric version of Audi’s Q2, the Q5, is also getting its first public trials.
Tesla, Nissan and BMW are also in the process of developing electric vehicles.
