Renault’s glimpse into the future

October 2, 2018

The Paris Motor Show is the perfect opportunity to showcase futuristic concepts and Groupe Renault took full advantage with the unveiling of EZ-ULTIMO, its futuristic robo-vehicle concept that offers an autonomous, electric, connected and shared mobility service solution.

It is available on-demand for a single trip, for an hour or for a day and caters 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.

Laurens van den Acker, SVP Corporate Design, explained: “As consumer trends change and people are enjoying ride-hailing services more and more, a new paradigm for mobility will emerge. Embodying this revolution, EZ-ULTIMO offers a unique luxurious experience aboard a robo-vehicle that can be adapted depending on the service provider. Inspired by contemporary architecture, and completely integrated in future smart cities, EZ-ULTIMO will provide an exclusive experience for all. With autonomous, electric and connected cars, we are entering a new exciting era in automotive design.”

The futuristic design is carried through to the interior which is like a personal lounge, equipped with all the comfort and services needed to either relax or concentrate.

Welcoming and comfortable, EZ-ULTIMO embodies the Renault brand’s ‘Easy Life’ promise with easy access through a wide automatic opening 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. The refined interior, directly inspired by interior architecture, is tailor-made from upscale materials such as wood, marble and leather for a relaxing and enjoyable drive.

Equipped with level 4 autonomous driving technology, EZ-ULTIMO covers a wide range of use cases. This robo-vehicle is connected to infrastructures, can adapt to an urban environment, to the motorway or to a shuttle service on dedicated roads.

As mobility continues to evolve with connected and autonomous cars, Renault believes customers will seek more enriched on-board experiences, reinventing travel time, personally and professionally.

EZ-ULTIMO is the third in Renault’s family of concepts focusing on autonomous, electric, connected, and shared urban mobility services.
