Renault’s EZ-GO was recently unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show. The car is designed keeping urban transportation in mind. Although it is not a very fast car, it can fit as many as six passengers at a time.
The car is a fully autonomous electric vehicle. It has a garage-like door that opens up to load people and goods easily. The concept car is designed to be able to navigate city spaces more effectively with full four-wheel steering, and it’s intended to work on a shared service platform, through which you hail it to your location. It can also pick one up at designated stations. The car can thus perform as a cross between an Uber and a bus.
there is enough space so that passengers can actually stand up inside the cabin and walk out at full height thanks to the high-rise door, and there are windows all around giving you a pretty unencumbered view inside the car.
So currently the EZ-GO is a vision of what a transportation system might look like in the future. The hope for the price point of rides in the car is to get it to above public transit but well below private hire vehicles.
Renault for now is hoping to make this car a reality on roads by 2022.
