Even with the black cloud hanging over the auto industry that is President-elect Trump's Twitter feed, the Detroit Auto Show has been able to shine since kicking off Sunday evening.
The showstopper by far is Waymo's self-driving minivan (pictured below) in partnership with Fiat Chrysler (FCAM) . Waymo's ultimate mom-mobile, coming from a business that was spun-off from Google's parent company Alphabet Inc. (GOOG) last month, is equipped with self-driving sensors and vision systems.
Executives on hand at the event didn't give a timeline for when the minivan of the future would hit the market for consumers.
And yes, the van has a steering wheel mostly because some states, such as California, require one during testing on public roads and highways.
