Renault has unveiled a mobile lounge at this year’s Paris Motor Show, which it is calling the EZ-ULTIMO. While it may have a curious name, what you’re looking at is a preview of a premium autonomous mobility service vehicle for the future.

The French automaker explains that the EZ-ULTIMO would be perfect for travel companies and resorts, as the robo-vehicle can be used for ride-hailing duties. Thanks to level four autonomous driving technology as well as connected services and infrastructure, you’re looking at what is essentially a luxury limo without a human chauffer.

“As consumer trends change and people are enjoying ride-hailing services more and more, a new paradigm for mobility will emerge. Embodying this revolution, Renault EZ-Ultimo offers a unique luxurious experience aboard a robo-vehicle that can be adapted depending on the service provider,” said Laurens van den Acker, SVP Corporate Design at Renault.

“Inspired by contemporary architecture, and completely integrated in future smart cities, EZ-ULTIMO will provide an exclusive experience for all. With autonomous, electric and connected cars, we are entering a new exciting era in automotive design,” he adds.

Based on the photos, the autonomous vehicle looks like a rather pleasant place to be in, with upscale materials like wood, marble and leather to create well, a lounge – Renault says it is modelled after a posh hotel. A wide, automatic sliding door makes ingress and egress a hassle-free affair, while rotating seats add the luxurious theme being conveyed.

Like previous concepts, the EZ-ULTIMO shares the same electric architecture with the EZ-GO and EZ-PRO, with floor-mounted batteries and electric motors.
