WorldAutoSteel and Ricardo unveil new MaaS autonomous vehicle design

WorldAutoSteel and engineering partner Ricardo have revealed their new Mobility as a Service (MaaS) autonomous vehicle concept called the Steel E-Motive.

The concept would be used in the future for fully self-driving ride-hailing and ride-sharing services and would be deployable by 2030.

The design concept comprises both a compact, four-passenger vehicle, and a version with space for more passengers and luggage for out-of-town journeys.

Cees ten Broek, director, WorldAutoSteel said: “We’ve focused on delivering a solution that meets the essential requirements for mass scale deployment in future mobility applications. 

“It is efficient in its construction, manufacturing and total lifecycle emissions, as well as attractive in the landscape for which it is intended.”

The Steel E-Motive vehicle design also features battery electric propulsion, Level 5 autonomy and four-wheel steering for maximum functionality and manoeuvrability.

Level 5 vehicles do not require a human to drive, do not have a steering wheel and can complete any driving task a human can do.

Vehicle specifications are geared to high-volume manufacture with vehicle producers, fleet operators and ride-hailing users in mind.
