NAVYA, a firm specialising in autonomous vehicles, has launched its AUTONOM CAB in Paris.
The totally electric-powered AUTONOM CAB provides an intelligent transport service for individual trips in urban centres.
The cab was designed from the outset to be autonomous, just like all the vehicles in the AUTONOM range, meaning that there is no cockpit, steering wheel or pedals.
It can carry one to six passengers and is capable of speeds up to 90 km/h, but will average closer to 50 km/h as it travels in urban areas to conform with local speed limits.
NAVYA CEO Christophe Sapet, said: “Imagine what cities would be like if there were nothing but AUTONOMS running on the road. No more traffic jams or parking problems, fewer accidents and less pollution.
"At NAVYA, we recognise that the status of individual cars is rapidly changing, especially among younger generations, many of whom don't have their driver's license and are less attached to the concept of owning a car.
“What they want are mobility solutions available 24/7, ensuring their safety and well-being at a reduced cost. AUTONOM CAB is leading edge and will revolutionise both habits and technology, enabling a great many people to gain access to a brand-new mobility solution."
