the link&go 2.0 rethinks the urban environment and mobility by linking the inhabitants with other system users together.
As autonomous vehicles begin being deployed as we see a rise in the number of mobility-as-a-service apps like Uber, it is natural that vehicle architecture will evolve away from the traditional driver-oriented, forward seated position to one that permits more interaction between passengers. Much like the electric powertrain permits a more functional scooter design (a la Lit Motors), driverless cars will permit carriage like seating arrangements.
This is the second example that I’ve seen of this (first being Zoox), but I think we’ll see a lot more of it in the future. It also looks totally badass - I’d much prefer to take one of these than to take a normal car taxi.
