Renault EZ-GO: Autonomous, electrically powered, robo-car for shared urban mobility

In 1898, when the world just met the phenomenon of cars, Louis Renault drove the first car with direct transmission through Rue Lepic, one of the steepest streets in Paris. 120 years ago it was an unprecedented technical achievement. This caused Renault to revolutionize mobility - the key to more freedom and the first step towards driving pleasure and motorsport.

For five generations, Renault has been inspired by the passion for driving and motorsport, to give customers the freedom to enjoy an Easy Life when they drive a Renault. The brands of Groupe Renault develop - in the spirit of its innovative founder - affordable cars that make life easier in every phase of life.

A new era in mobility has arrived and major changes are on the way. Both for users and manufacturers. The vision of Groupe Renault remains the same: to offer sustainable mobility for everyone, now and in the future. This means that the group has a pioneering role when it comes to the development of zero-emission vehicles, recognizes new trends and needs in the market at an early stage and offers new transport solutions to everyone who wishes - both owned and shared. Renault is convinced that this vision is more relevant than ever, given the technological and social developments, the expectations of customers and the legal regulations that determine the future of mobility.

The role of Renault in this new era is clear.

In urban areas - where approximately 70% of the population lives in the year 2050 - people are looking for ways to move more efficiently and profitably, so that less time is lost in traffic jams and the search for parking facilities. Shared mobility, available when needed and possibly as a supplement to your own car, appeals to more and more people. Because of the convenience, but also out of necessity - such as young people and the elderly, who either cannot afford their own car or cannot (no longer) drive a car. The mobility of the future is electric, connected and autonomous. The consumer chooses whether he wants to drive or be driven, with or without a driver on board, in vehicles that are increasingly integrated into the infrastructure, in cities that are 'smart' because of sensors, connectivity and all kinds of innovations that have been developed for life. to make the city more pleasant. Groupe Renault has been preparing for this development for a long time, researching new solutions and adopting an open, innovative approach with its partners in the ecosystem and the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance.

Renault has revealed the EZ-GO: an electric and self-driving concept car for urban mobility.

The car is intended as a part service and because it can drive autonomously, it does not have a steering wheel or pedals. Instead, the car is designed as a lounge area, accessible to several passengers. The EZ-GO should be used in the future as a robo-taxi, which can pick up and drop passengers. Users can order the car via an app. With this, Renault responds to the increasing traffic in cities. The use of shared cars, which can be used by several passengers, must contribute to reducing that pressure.

Renault states that safety is guaranteed, because the maximum speed of the self-driving car is 50 kilometers per hour. In addition, the spacious entrance and exit ensure that passengers can safely enter and leave the car. Inductive charging Another interesting detail of the concept car is the possibility of wireless charging. The EZ-GO has an induction battery, which allows the car to charge automatically by means of an induction plate.
