RENAULT gives us a glimpse of what life on the road might be like in a few years time, with a vehicle that feels more smart hotel than mere car.
The EZ-Ultimo, unveiled as an non-production concept at the Paris motor show, is the third in Renault's family of concepts focusing on autonomous, electric, connected and shared urban mobility services.
Breaking that down it means we have a possible future where you'll call for a car that will then drive you to your chosen destination under electric power while you stay firmly connected to the office or home.
Renault's dream makes the EZ-Ultimo available on-demand, for a single trip, for an hour or for a day, while it could also cater for people looking to enhance a special moment through a private trip in a city, a premium tourist experience or businesses looking to offer premium journey services to its clients.
Because it's a 'robo-vehicle', the traveller can truly enjoy the journey in a space designed like a personal lounge, equipped with all the comfort and services needed to either relax or concentrate.
There's easy access through a wide, automatic opening top-hinged door and a rotating seat on a slide that welcomes the passenger. For more privacy, passengers are hidden by glass facets on the upper part of the car.
