Renault EZ-ULTIMO Concept Shines at GITEX 2019
The robo-vehicle concept offers on-demand travel experience on a day and hour basis
After making its public debut at the 2019 Paris Motor Show, the French automaker displayed Renault EZ-ULTIMO concept at Etisalat pavilion on the opening day of Gitex Technology Week in Dubai World Trade Center. It’s the third EZ concept from Renault, which offers autonomous, electric, connected, and shared mobility service solutions. The robo-vehicle concept offers on-demand travel experience on a day and hour basis as a luxury alternative to traditional ride-sharing.
“As consumer trends change and people are enjoying ride-hailing services more and more, a new paradigm for mobility will emerge. Embodying this revolution, Renault EZ-ULTIMO offers a unique luxurious experience aboard a robo-vehicle that can be adapted depending on the service provider,” said Laurens van den Acker, SVP Corporate Design. “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.”
After introducing the EZ-GO in Geneva for everyday ride-sharing and EZ-PRO for package delivery, Renault has completed the family with the EZ-ULTIMO, which is primarily directed toward premium autonomous ride-sharing.
While the EZ-Go would rival the likes of Uber taxis offering commuting up to six people, the EZ-ULTIMO could just accommodate three or fewer people for a more personalized, friendly traveling experience. Considering the EZ-ULTIMO is half a meter (1.6 feet) longer than EZ-GO at 5.7 m (18.7 feet), passengers can truly feel a lounge-like experience inside.
Another highlight of the Renault EZ-ULTIMO is “augmented editorial experience” (AEX), which offers tailored, location-aware content through an interactive, voice-commanded interface.
