With its autonomous mobility concept EZ-GO, Renault illustrates its vision of a robotaxi for urban areas. The prototype is currently attracting attention at the Geneva Motor Show. It follows on Renault’s autonomous Symbioz concept unveiled in 2017.
The EZ-GO comes with an electric motor at the rear axle and provides six seats. As it is designed for app-based driverless ride-hailing purposes it has no steering wheel nor any other control components. Instead, the passengers are taking a seat face-to-face. The battery is said to be capable of wireless charging. Further details have not yet been published.
Renault is confident to launch the robotaxi by 2030. If the French carmaker does so, it is likely to challenge VW’s Sedric concept, which has a similar approach.
