Dubai-based W Motors and ICONIQ Motors have teamed up to unveil the MUSE – a fully-electric self-driving car at Auto Shanghai 2019. It features an advanced infotainment system and smart on-board services, innovative wide screen user interfaces and advanced cloud-computed connectivity.
The MUSE was fully designed in-house by the W Motors design team. Industry leaders such as Magna Steyr and Microsoft USA helped the team develop the project.
Ralph R. Debbas, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of W Motors says: “Electric and autonomous cars are the future, this is undisputed; it is estimated that electric vehicles will make up a massive 40-50% share of the global auto market by 2040, up from around 3% today.”
He adds: “The transition from conventional vehicles to electric ones will happen sooner than expected due to cost efficiency and environmental awareness, and a shift in mindset away from car ownership will take this transport model one step further.”
The production of the MUSE will start in early 2020.
