Icona Nucleus EV is a versatile vehicle with a capacity of 6 passengers. Interestingly, this car is fully electrically powered, and fully autonomous.

Lack of sides, front or rear window is a visual guide to fully autonomous capabilities, even though the panel is semi transparent, so the occupants can see it, but cannot be seen. Natural light comes from a clear roof canopy.
