Renault-Nissan Alliance and Transdev announced that the companies will jointly explore the development of mobility services with fleets of electric driverless vehicles for public and on-demand transportation. Both the companies will collaborate to develop a comprehensive, modular transportation system that will make ease of booking ride, and mobility operators to monitor and operate self-driving car fleets.

Initially, the research will include field tests of Renault ZOE in Paris-Saclay, which is the leading electric vehicle in Europe, and Transdev’s on-demand dispatch, supervision and routing platform.

Speaking on this Ogi Redzic, Renault-Nissan Alliance senior vice president of Connected Vehicles and Mobility Services, said, “As the mobility services landscape keeps evolving, we have a great opportunity to offer innovative, connected mobility solutions for the evolving needs of our customers, fully aligned with our vision of a zero-emission, zero-fatalities society. Partnering with Transdev allows us to share our knowledge as leaders in electric vehicles, autonomous drive and connected-car technologies with one of the largest multi-modal mobility operators worldwide. Together we will develop an advanced driverless mobility system that will enhance existing public and on-demand transport systems.”

 

Adding to this, Yann Leriche, chief performance officer at Transdev, said, “The future of mobility will be P.A.C.E. –  Personalized, Autonomous, Connected and Electric. As a worldwide leader in public transport and on-demand shared services, we are committed to pioneer in mobility to always offer our clients the best solutions for their journeys. Our partnership with Renault-Nissan will reinforce our innovation capabilities and accelerate our time-to-market by combining our strengths with those of a global car manufacturer that shares the same willingness to enhance daily mobility to the benefit of clients.”

The Alliance has formed the partnerships to accelerate the development of advanced connected-car technologies and mobility services that also includes partnership with Microsoft to develop a single global platform that will improve the customer experience by making driving more intuitive, intelligent and fun along with associating with a Japanese internet company DeNA to begin tests in Japan to develop driverless vehicles for commercial services.

Recently, Renault also introduced a new RXL variant in the Kwid 1.0L SCe (Smart Control efficiency).
