In a recent YouTube video, the driver of a new Infiniti Q50S Hybrid lets his car drive itself on a highway near the city of Passau in Germany at a constant speed of 100 km/h (62 mph).

This video, uploaded by VPmagazin, first shows us the vehicle reaching 100 km/h (62 mph) with the driver just taking his hands off the steering wheel. On the next step, he even decides to sit on the passenger’s seat and just watch what’s happening. As the man points out, “the system (Active Lane Control) doesn't turn off if you take your hands off the steering wheel”.

In the UK the Q50S Hybrid is rated at 40,000 GBP ($67,500) and is equipped with a 364 PS (268 kW) V6 3.5-liter engine, regenerative braking, sports suspension and brakes. The Active Lane Control system is part of the optional equipment that also includes a 14-speaker Advanced Bose sound system, a navigation system, an adaptive front lightning, a tire pressure monitoring, power & heated folding door mirrors, an intelligent cruise control and other safety systems as well.

In the USA the model is available for $49,055 (29,000 GBP).
