The futuristic-looking sedan called LeSEE has a top speed of 130 miles per hour (210 km/h), seats that can change colors and automatically adjust themselves with help of special light-emitting diodes, cameras instead of rear-view mirrors and augmented reality features.

The 2016 Beijing Auto Show didn’t go unnoticed and in there we’ve heard plenty of interesting news.
One of the most interesting ones was about the self-driven electric car called LeSee – See stands for "Super Electric Ecosystem"–from Chinese giant LeEco.
According to Yueting Jia, LeEco founder and CEO, LeSee vehicle will have a top speed of 130 miles per hour (210km/h), seats that can change colors and automatically adjust themselves with help of special light-emitting diodes, cameras instead of rear-view mirrors and augmented reality features.
Quite promising, isn’t it?
Well, that’s not everything.
The futuristic-looking 4-seater has some other cool features like ‘personal isolation’: each passenger of the car will be able to choose any music or video they want to, not (attention!) bothering other passengers.
LeSEE was developed in 28 months, during which LeEco forged partnerships internationally to speed up the process.
How cool is that, huh?
I mean, of course, interpersonal skills might suffer a little bit, but if there is any chance of not listening to Justin Bieber music, I am ready to sacrifice with almost everything in return.
Thank you for doing it and placing a screen for every passenger, LeEco.
Some other cool functions
Other functions that I do like is ‘spaciousness’ – in autonomous mode the steering wheel folds back into the console, creating more space for the driver–and ‘location’: you can request the car via smartphone and it will come to your location –btw, that’s what Yueting Jia did during the presentation in Bejing.
Like Tesla Model 3, LeSee has a panoramic roof and a battery pack hidden under the car – like in Tesla’s case, it goes as a part of chassis.
Another thing that has to be mentioned about is vehicle’s powertrain (Aston Martin was developing it) and unique Variable Platform Architecture – the same that Faraday Future FFZERO1 has.
Without providing technical specifications, Ding said the car will surpass the Model S from leading electric car maker Tesla in “all aspects of performance”.
Partnership with Faraday Future
LeEco extended its partnership and started partnering with Faraday Future to fund a world-class autonomous driving research center in Silicon Valley.
Both companies were quite scarce on the details and said practically nothing on that, but we do believe that it has something to do with brand-new ‘gigafactory’ in Nevada.
Like Mulder would say, the truth is out there and sooner or later we’ll get it.
