Renault unveiled a self-driving, fully electric luxury concept robo-car at the 2018 Paris Motor Show on Wednesday that will combine connected car technology with traditional French luxury.

“Inspired by contemporary architecture and completely integrated in future smart cities, EZ-Ultimo will provide an exclusive experience for all,” Laurens van den Acker the French carmaker’s senior vice-president of corporate design, said.

“With autonomous, electric and connected cars, we are entering a new exciting era in automotive design.”

Renault said the space-age concept vehicle is not focused on individual ownership.

Instead, the lavishly designed limousine – like a mobile first-class lounge – is meant to give us a glimpse of how luxury ride-sharing could look and feel in the future.

EZ-Ultimo is designed to be available on-demand for rides that last from an hour up to a whole day.

The lavish interior has the look and feel of a hotel lounge and features three huge armchairs and fittings made from marble, wood panelling and the fine leather.

Lighting inside is controlled with dimmer knobs.

The roof of the vehicle features a series of glass panels, which makes passengers feel as if they are sitting under a canopy.

Along the sides of the car is a lattice structure and blacked-out windows, which allow passengers to look out while maintaining their privacy.

Equipped with Level 4 autonomous driving technology, the striking concept vehicle can function without any driver input in specific settings.

Renault said the car could be adapted for use in a variety of settings, including an urban environment and on main roads.

It can also be programmed to work as a shuttle on specific roads.

“As consumer trends change and people are enjoying ride-hailing services more, a new paradigm for mobility will emerge,” Van den Acker said.

“Embodying this revolution, Renault EZ-Ultimo offers a unique luxurious experience aboard a robo-vehicle that can be adapted depending on the service provider.”

Renault says its robo-vehicle will be connected to various main roads and citywide infrastructures so that it can provide passengers with an almost totally autonomous experience.
