At the Geneva Motor Show, a show that traditionally focuses on sports cars, Renault decided to emphasize its future without a driver. The Renault EZ-GO is an autonomous electric car that people can dial from a fixed or mobile location in small groups of up to six people or on their own. It is anticipated that the EZ-GO will be available upon request through an application, but also at permanent stations throughout the city.
EZ-GO has autonomous driving capability of level 4, which means that you can change lanes, turn at an intersection and manage your distance from the vehicle in front of it. The car has an elegant cocoon structure, which according to Renault is designed to maximize the field of vision of the autonomous sensors. Passengers enter through a hatch in the front, and the car has lights to show where the platform of the ramp will land for easy access. The seats are arranged in a U-shape, so all passengers face each other, which makes the car more sociable. The vehicle has a panoramic glass roof and is accessible for wheelchairs with a flat floor and a boarding ramp.

Renault says it has a limited speed of 50 km / h (30 mph) and can move to a safe position if there is an accident nearby, either alone or by connecting to a monitoring center. The car also presents 4CONTROL, Renault's four-wheel steering technology.

With this vehicle, Renault will focus on a price point that is more expensive than a bus, but a little cheaper than calling an Uber or a taxi. "Shared mobility and shared mobility services represent an important opportunity for Renault, especially in the cities, many have aging populations, or very young, and people looking for new mobility solutions," said Thierry Bolloré, Renault operations director. , it's a statement.

The car can be used for public or private services. Renault says it will launch the first EZ-GO robocar in 2022.
