As the automaker industry moves toward electrification and autonomy, the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) has become an increasingly important venue for automakers to show off their ideas for the future of transportation.

This year, automakers like Mercedes-Benz, Audi, and BMW brought concept and upcoming production vehicles to the event, which runs January 8-11 in Las Vegas.

Beyond the auto industry, we also saw aircraft, a motorcycle, and a yacht.
