Previewed in a new EZ-Go concept at the Geneva motor show, Renault’s driverless vehicle could take to the roads before the end of the next decade.

Following the autonomous Symbioz concept of 2017, the EZ-Go is essentially Renault’s answer to the Volkswagen Sedric concept.

It is a six-seater that sits between private hire robotaxis and public buses and is intended to tackle the same urban transport issues as its boxier VW alternative.

“The world’s cities are growing but our transport infrastructure is lagging further and further behind,” said Christian Ledoux, boss of mobility services at the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, at a pre-launch event in Paris.

The EZ-Go is a ride-hailing robotaxi that features no steering wheel, dashboard or other familiar vehicle controls. Instead, it has a simple U-shaped seating arrangement that places its passengers face to face.

Renault design boss Laurens van den Acker said the concept “took direct influence from the black cabs of London and yellow taxis of New York” but attempts to evolve the formula into a more elegant form.

“We set out to create a larger robotaxi that is as iconic as the black and yellow taxis but one that’s a more modern, elegant expression of transport,” he said. “If I want you to jump in a Renault EZ-Go instead of a rival’s alternative, I have to attract you with its design, so that’s what you see here – our vision for future mobility.”

Van den Acker said a production version of the EZ-Go could be adapted for different cities thanks to the use of a flexible platform. These underpinnings would be shared with other autonomous models from Renault-Nissan Mitsubishi, which come as part of a €10 billion (£8.8 billion) investment in its Alliance 2022 plan.

“We could have different sizes and different designs for each city,” said van den Acker.

The vehicle’s electric powertrain is said to borrow technology from the wider alliance and is capable of wireless induction charging. Ledoux said it could do this while waiting for passengers at specific roadside stations, or even on the move – so long as the infrastructure to support this mobile charging is in place.

F1 2018 Preview: The manufacturer responsible for the title hopes of three teams .
Renault is now in the third year of its renewed commitment to F1, with only minor successes to its credit since will 2018 be its year? Rebuilding over the last couple of seasons, Renault lost its way in the new era of hybrid power units after an extremely successful four championship winning streak with Red Bull. Arguably its biggest critic, Red Bull also brought success, with wins in both 2016 and 2017. It will be an important season for Renault. Just as Red Bull is evaluating its future with the French manufacturer, McLaren enters a new partnership in the expectation it will once again return to the front of the grid, the same position its own team faces following its takeover of what was formally Lotus two years ago. Can an increased budget propel both its own team and its customers to the front of the field, or will unreliability and performance deficiency once again plague its ambitions? Renault has invested in rebuilding its Enstone team over the last couple of seasons. Hiring talented drivers, initially signing Nico Hulkenberg from Force India before acquiring Carlos Sainz on loan from the Red Bull family midway through 2017. It raised a few eyebrows during testing, Renault debuting a new blown rear wing using the exhaust as a method of increasing downforce, in a similar way to the blown floors of the V8 era, along with a new front wing which will be raced in Melbourne.
