New mobility

In 2008, the Zagato Total Design Studio designed the People Mover, a futuristic automated electric solution capable of transporting up to six passengers. It will be the official vehicle of EXPO 2020, acting as a driverless taxi to serve pre-ordained stops. It has 4/6 front opposite seats, side sliding doors, maximum comfort and luxury trim. The People Mover has a light and stiff carbon fibre monocoque, lithium-ion batteries, rubber tyres and it drives along a magnetic band. The vehicle travels at 40 km/h on a straight line, and 25 km/h when turning – sensors in the front will make it slow down or stop if they detect any obstacle as far as 10 m ahead.
