Groupe Renault and Nissan with Waymo will explore the implementation of an autonomous mobility service between Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport and La Défens in the Paris region.
It will be a new service that will be beneficial to Île-de-France residents and tourists and complementary to the existing transport offering. Groupe Renault says the project is part of its commitment to offering innovative and accessible solutions to tackle urban environmental congestion.
Hadi Zablit, SVP, Groupe Renault’s SVP,, Alliance Business Development, says: “Tomorrow’s mobility will be electric, connected, autonomous and shared. Driven by this conviction, we will, with our partner Waymo, work on this major project in coordination with the Paris Region, as well as the stakeholders of the SAM experiment program. And, as a French manufacturer, we are very proud to contribute to the influence and evolution of Paris and the Île-de-France region.”
Adam Frost, Chief Automotive Programs and Partnerships Officer, Waymo, adds: “France is a recognized global mobility leader, and we look forward to working with the Paris Region and our partner Groupe Renault to explore deploying the Waymo Driver on the critical business route stretching from Roissy-Charles de Gaulle Airport to La Défense in Paris.”
The Paris Region invests in all forms of mobility to improve the quality of life of Île-de-France inhabitants and has an investment budget of 750 million euros.
