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.

Last year Toyota unveiled a concept for a self-driving delivery vehicle, and Ford outlined its efforts to create communication technology for autonomous vehicles.

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.

These are the 20 coolest vehicles we saw at CES:
