Stealing the spotlight at the Geneva Motor Show this week is the Renault EZ-GO autonomous car concept. It’s a futuristic community vehicle that matches what many are expecting from the future of transportation. #automagic
Renault EZ-GO is both a self-driving and electric car. Not only that, but it’s also designed for ride-sharing in urban environments. As many as six people can ride in it with room to even stand up in it like in a bus.
With its generous interior space and windows, it’s a cross between an Uber and a small bus. Indeed, you can hop-on and hop-off any time you want and during the ride, it offers cool perks like Wi-fi and charging points. Additionally, the seats are all facing each other, allowing for a more social riding experience than in typical cars or buses.
Just as with other ride-sharing services like Uber or Lyft, you’ll be able to use an app to call the Renault EZ-GO as an Uber or as a mini-van for your group of friends. As both Uber and Lyft try to offer ambulances as well, maybe the EZ-GO will as well!
Renault wants to put the self-driving EZ-GO on the roads somewhere in 2022, but there’s no telling how many of the features shown in the prototype will reach the market. Until then, you can use the newly released Waymo 360° Experience to experience what it’s like being in a self-driving car.
