CES has very much become a car show over the past few years. In fact, the entire North Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Centre is dedicated to cars and car technology.
While 2018 wasn’t quite as bumper a show for new metal as 2017 was, the tech was arguably more interesting. Electric vehicles (EVs), autonomous cars, new interface design and Amazon Alexa voice-assistant were all key stories.

The first auto launch of CES 2018 also proved to be one of the most important. The Toyota e-Palette is a delivery-truck-sized, reconfigurable autonomous pod. It can be pop-up shop, Amazon delivery truck or Uber as needed. Amazon, Uber, Didi and Pizza Hut are all on board for this concept, which will appear for real at the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.
