Renault Creates Autonomous Ride Sharing Vehicle

In the race to vehicle autonomy, competition is starting to heat up regarding the company with the best and most technologically advanced options for consumers.

At the Geneva Motor show this year, Renault debuted their new EZ-GO, an electric autonomous car concept that riders can hail with an app similar to Uber and Lyft.

The new concept has “Level 4” driving autonomy which facilitates changing lanes, managing vehicle distance and turning at intersections without help. The design is sleek and bold, with ample window space which doubles as a field of vision for the autonomous sensors. Passengers sit “U” style to maximize socializing and comfort. It also comes with a panoramic glass roof and is wheelchair accessible.

Ride-hailing and shared mobility services represent an important opportunity for Renault, especially in cities. Many have aging – or very young – populations, and people are looking for new mobility solutions,” said Thierry Bolloré, Renault’s chief operating officer in a statement.

The cost for the service would be cheaper than Uber or Lyft. Renault says it will release the first EZ-GO in 2022.
