Renault announces production of Level 4 autonomous robotized miniBus

Renault made some big announcements overnight, outlining major changes to its autonomous vehicle strategy and announcing the production (no dates specified) of a robotized electric miniBus based on the New Renault Master.

The new robotized electric miniBus is intended to be a platform suitable for customization by specialist mobility partners such as EasyMile, Milla and WeRide.

The platform is designed to integrate the automation solutions from these partners.

The biggest change in Renault’s autonomous vehicle strategy involves focusing its more advanced autonomous technologies on the public transportation sector, and its intention to separate the expectations for individual vehicles from the needs of public transportation.

On the consumer side of things, Renault has stated that it is unlikely to offer much more than Level 2 Autonomy in its consumer vehicles in the near future.
