AN INNOVATIVE PARTNERSHIP TO ENCOURAGE PEOPLE TO MOVE TO AUTONOMOUS AND ELECTRIC MOBILITY
The main aim of NAVYA, the leading name in the conception and development of 100% autonomous, driverless and electric shuttles, is to facilitate access to increasingly smart and autonomous mobility and make it available to everyone.
NEoT Capital (‘New Energy of Things’) is the first ever international company dedicated to funding distributed renewable energies and electric mobility. NEoT Capital recently communicated on the launch* of its NEoT Green Mobility investment programme targeting electric mobility, in partnership with EDF and Caisse des Dépôts.
These companies have signed a partnership to develop an original and previously unheard of business proposition in the electric and autonomous mobility market. Both public authorities and private companies will benefit from the advantages that go hand in hand with using autonomous vehicles and will be able to choose the solution that suits them best when making the move across to electric and autonomous mobility.
A BRAND NEW AUTONOMOUS MOBILITY SOLUTION FOR USERS
The NAVYA ARMA is proving to be the ideal vehicle for covering first and last mile transportation and serves to enhance the modes of transport already in place or already operating on private sites. It provides users with a new and innovative solution for their daily transportation needs.
This fully autonomous public transport vehicle holds up to 15 people and provides an effective means of easing urban traffic flow whilst fitting in perfectly with multimodal services already in place.
Not only does the autonomous shuttle makes it easier to gain access to areas with little or no public transport service, but it may also provide a more convenient and comfortable means of getting around airports, university campuses, industrial sites, hospitals, convention centers and amusement parks etc. Driverless vehicles will also help to reduce the number of road accidents and pollution in towns and cities and will provide an adaptable and flexible transport solution.
"The service solution in autonomous mobility that we are launching today is an extremely interesting buying alternative for operators. It meets the increasing need for cleaner and more flexible mobility solutions whilst keeping financial input to a minimum, providing them with a clear, fixed rate operating and maintenance budget", explains Christophe Sapet, CEO of NAVYA.
"We are delighted with this partnership enabling NAVYA to develop its extremely innovative turnkey service solution in autonomous mobility. This partnership falls within our strategy to promote electric mobility and develop new economic models", adds Pierre Devillard, CEO of NEoT Capital.
