#greenstories - How do we develop the circular economy of the electric vehicle battery? Groupe Renault signs an “innovation deal”

Director of Concept Car Design at Renault since 2014, Stéphane Janin recently took on a new challenge with his teams: developing a "robot-vehicle" expressing Renault's vision of the future of shared mobility. The result is the Renault EZ-GO concept, unveiled at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The task was radically different from the previous concept cars TREZOR and SYMBIOZ since the design team had to "forget" the driver's station and factor in the particular constraints of the collective use of the robot-vehicle, which presages our urban journeys of the future. Stéphane Janin filled us in on this original approach.
