Renault shared mobility concept previewed ahead of Geneva

Renault will reveal a new shared mobility concept at the Geneva motor show and has previewed the no conductor in the interior of the vehicle with a new image.

The picture shows three people sitting on a bench-like seat in a cabin surrounded by large sections of glass. Non-conventional characteristics of a car interior are visible.

Renault official image that comes in the week after the concept was seen in the streets of Barcelona. Images (below) were published in the Cochespias forum on the web and showed that the concept will be lower than driverless pods produced by the rivals, such as the square Volkswagen Sedric.

Renault said the vehicle illustrates “the shared vision of the urban mobility”. The brand said that it’s “passionate about making life easier for customers”, suggesting that the model has been developed to become part of a journey-hailing system or network of public transport.

Details of transmission have not yet been revealed, but the sheath was seen to be controlled by a remote control, which suggests that it is an autonomous electric vehicle. The images show what appears to be an open-plan interior with no steering wheel.

Renault research of the autonomous technology has been demonstrated with its Symbioz concept (that the Bus has been sampled) in the past year. The Renault-Nissan, Mitsubishi Alliance is to invest £8.9 billion in electric and autonomous cars as part of plans to bring 40 autonomous capable cars and theft of vehicles in the market in the year 2022.

Along with its new sheath concept, Renault will show an update of Zoe in Geneva. The electric hatchback has received a new R110 engine that ups power to 107bhp, a 16bhp increase over the current R90, however, has no impact on the car 250 miles NEDC range.
