Someone Spotted Renault’s Geneva-Bound Mobility Concept and Boy is it Fugly!
Renault, nor the alliance, has released any details pertaining to this new concept, but as you can see it’s certainly something that’s right out of the future. I’m not sure if it came from some alternate universe in Blade Runner or if it is a Terminator’s personal vehicle, but it looks to be more of a shell than a finished concept.
Closer inspection shows that the vehicle is unmanned in the traditional sense (controlled by a remote control) and it looks like it was designed to take a beating more than it was to offer up luxurious transportation. Of course, when you think about cheap, public transportation, this design really does fit. We’ve certainly never taken a 50-cent ride on a local public bus that was luxurious by any means.
The images we have hear were posted on the Cochespias web forum, and word has it that the concept is Renault’s “vision for shared, urban mobility.” Either way, it’s quite ugly and certainly takes a different approach from models like the Volkswagen Sedric, for instance.
The RNM Alliance is planning a $1.2 billion investment in EV, autonomous, and robo-vehicles, and if this will be the fruits of that investment, you can expect to see these things all over the place in the very near future – they certainly can’t cost too much to manufacture if this is the finish project, but what do you think?
