Energy Storing Panels
Energy stored from the sun can be used as a reserve power. The panels in the car will collect this energy.
Augmented Reality-enabled windshields

Personalised marketing is utilised by the likes of Google, Facebook, and Twitter. Connected cars will be internet-enabled and the display window is likely to feature ads. This will be one of the most advanced car technologies by 2020.
Green tech is leading the fray. With this type of tech, solar energy is utilised to drive cars.
In-car Health monitoring
We’ve seen wearable tech completely changing the health sector by monitoring stats of individuals. With new car technology, human body vital stats will be tracked. Sensors in steering wheels or in seatbelts may be able to detect any alarming health conditions.

With this tech, cars will override driver commands in certain conditions. Even if a driver has their feet on the accelerator, the car would come to a halt.
Some people might think that this is still unrealistic, but advanced technology tells us something completely different. People can look forward to one of the most advanced car technologies by 2020 in the form of the Slovakian AeroMobil 3.0. The vehicle is expected to be able to land at any airport and be able to drive to any petrol station to refill.
