The BYD F5 Surui boasts of having the world’s first remote control feature for a car. The Chinese car from a tech-focused company comes with all the electronic bells and whistles which we reviewed and found to be quite decent for a Mainland-made car.

Well aside from the feature that BYD has shown which allows you to remotely park your car or move your car out of a tight parking space, have ever wondered what actual use you’d have with the remote control function apart from a mere novelty?

A recent CCTV footage shows how a potential carjacking attempt was avoided by using the remote control function to ward off the crooks. They just ran away at the sight of a car driving itself.

Real or staged? You be the judge.
