The future will be autonomous, electric, connected and people will use shared mobility services. Today, shared mobility means using public transport like buses, trains or monorail coaches – with experiences that are usually unpleasant. However, in the future, there can also be shared mobility services with a premium travel experience – as suggested by the Renault EZ-ULTIMO concept car.
Available on-demand, for a single trip, for an hour or for a day, the EZ-ULTIMO caters to 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.
“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, Senior Vice-President for Corporate Design at Groupe Renault. “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 EZ-ULTIMO concept opens-up new arenas for Renault design. Through its design, it embodies the EASY LIFE genes of the Renault brand. Wide automatic openings and a seat on a swivelling slide make for easy passenger access. For privacy, the occupants are protected from outside view by slightly transparent facets on the upper part of the bodywork.
The refined interior reflects French elegance and is inspired by the world of living. Tailor-made, it is dressed in noble materials such as wood, leather and even marble, allowing passengers to enjoy a top-of-the-range and relaxing living space.
The EZ-ULTIMO is proposed with Level 4 autonomy which means it can operate on its own for the entire journey. It can be connected to infrastructures, 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. To embrace this revolution, the French group has invested in Groupe Challenges and collaborated on a first concept: the Augmented Editorial Experience (AEX).
AEX is a realist immersive experience which combines personalized premium content, multimedia experiences and mobility. This can convert travel time into a learning experience for EZ-ULTIMO passengers, for instance.
Following EZ-GO, with its vision of shared mobility, and EZ-PRO, a vehicle robot dedicated to last mile delivery, EZ-ULTIMO is the third concept from the same modular platform. Inspired by the ambition to offer sustainable mobility for all, this trilogy of electric, autonomous and connected concepts illustrates the Groupe Renault’s vision of tomorrow’s shared urban mobility.
