Renault has unveiled EZ-GO, a robo-vehicle and ride-hailing concept, featuring an iconic design meant to integrate into the environment, and maximize new ways of moving around congested cities.
Renault EZ-GO concept is designed as both a vehicle and a service that allows people to hail a ride either from a fixed or mobile location. The integration of vehicle and service, combined with connection to city infrastructure - leveraging sensors, data analytics, connected services, multimodal systems and more - will be a key characteristic of successful mobility solutions and smart cities of the future.
"We designed Renault EZ-GO to be an iconic symbol for cities. This electric, autonomous concept explores the positive potential impact of shared mobility for all," said Laurens van den Acker, Senior Vice President Corporate Design. "Visually appealing and integrated in the urban environment, it offers an unprecedented 360 degree 'open window' on the city and a convivial space for people to relax and enjoy the ride."
EZ-GO's innovative architecture and cocoon-like styling was designed to maximize the field of vision of the autonomous system's sensors, and allow natural light through the panoramic glass roof. The robo-vehicle's height does not interfere with pedestrians' view of the city. Once connected to its station, EZ-GO offers a wide flat floor flush with the boarding ramp, making it easy to get onboard, whether walking or with wheels.
