Autonomous Taxi Debuts in France
French autonomous vehicle maker NAVYA’s new AUTONOM CAB drives itself through Paris.
Recently, NAVYA unveiled AUTONOM CAB, a market-ready fully autonomous taxi! The totally electric-powered vehicle has been engineered to provide an intelligent transport service for individual trips in urban centres.
With room for six passengers, the cab was designed from the outset to be autonomous, which means there is no cockpit, steering wheel or pedals.
“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,” says NAVYA CEO, Christophe Sapet. “At NAVYA, we recognize 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 revolutionize both habits and technology, enabling a great many people to gain access to a brand-new mobility solution.”
