Volvo 360c

CAR (UK) - - Insider -

It’s our au­tonomous pod of the month! Be­fore you get ahead of your­selves, this isn’t a re­place­ment for the boxy, Dutch-built Volvo 360 ei­ther. No, Volvo aspires to take on short haul £lights with this rather swish-look­ing driver­less car. It’s al­l­elec­tric, with Volvo say­ing it’ll do 186 miles on one charge. The idea is that if you’re trav­el­ling from con­ti­nen­tal city to city, the car will do it for you while you chill in the sleep­ing cabin… not that 186 miles will get you to that many cities. Volvo wanted to show ex­actly what its au­tonomous con­cepts can ac­tu­ally do and how peo­ple might use them, in­stead of just be­ing ‘a tech show­case’ and lit­tle more, ac­cord­ing to Robin Page, Volvo’s se­nior VP for de­sign.
