This Could Be The Taxi Of The Future

This could be the taxi of the future. The EZ-GO is a concept by Renault. It’s a fully autonomous ride-hailing service. It doesn’t require a driver to be present. And if necessary, it could be controlled remotely. 

Hailing an EZ-GO is simple. It’s all done through the app. 1) Choose your experience. You can choose a private ride or share with others. 2) Reserve your seats. The EZ-GO would seat up to six. It could also take tourists on a guided tour. 3) Get in and go. The door lifts vertically allowing riders to walk in upright. A ramp also makes the EZ-GO more accessible.

The interior is designed for comfort. Sofa-style seating. 360-degree windows. In-car WiFi and wireless charging. A display shows your travel information. Renault sees a need for new mobility solutions in cities today. EZ-GO aims to solve those issues. Would you reserve this ride?

This Is The World’s Most Advanced Self-Driving Car

This is the world’s most advanced self-driving car. The SYMBIOZ is a concept car by Renault. It embodies what they believe cars will be like in 2030. The concept car has achieved level 4 autonomy. This means the driver doesn’t need to pay attention to the road or touch the steering wheel. For comparison, Tesla’s operate at level 2.

A level 4 car can change lanes on its own, exit the highway, regulate its speed based on speed limit and traffic, or pull over to a safe place if the driver can’t take over control. Entertainment features make the autonomous ride more enjoyable. Cinema-quality screens with the ability to stream movies while in self-driving mode, high-end audio system, virtual reality. 

The Symbioz can really get up and go. It boasts 680 hp. 0 to 60 in 6 seconds. Dual electric motors on the rear wheel. In-car monitors replace traditional mirrors. You won’t see this car on the road anytime soon. The biggest hurdle will be regulating level 4 autonomy. Since it’s currently illegal. Renault believes the technology will be affordable by 2023.
