Volvo 360c 
A New Way To Travel
   
Imagine you have an early morning meeting in a neighbouring city. You have two options to get there – a short-hop flight from your local airport, or a fully autonomous pure electric travel solution that can deliver you directly to your meeting place, having avoided check-in, queueing, flight delays, security checks and everything else that is part of air travel. Which would you choose? In the not too distant future we see a world where fully autonomous electric vehicles are the answer to personal mobility needs. In an aim to bring our vision of the future to life, Volvo developed the 360c. Individual mobility needs are evolving. Solutions must offer a safe, environmentally sound, yet personal and comfortable travel experience.

Increasingly, car sharing and subscription services are complementing traditional car ownership patterns. And while we believe that many people will still want to have their own car, others will switch to alternative mobility solutions as they become available. We believe that this type of mobility solution will be ubiquitous, changing the nature of the way we travel and the way we plan and build our cities.

The 360c also introduces a proposal for a standardised autonomous vehicle communication system that will enable other road users and autonomous vehicles to understand what the 360c is going to do next. We believe that such a standardised system will play an integral part in making autonomous vehicle travel a safe and pleasant reality.

The 360c delivers a vision of how we can make travel sustainable. Fully electric and fully autonomous 360c vehicles will offer people the freedom to move in a smooth and hassle-free manner. No more flight delays or baggage checks. 360c is designed to take you from A to B.

The changing nature of personal mobility needs means that we will need to look at how our infrastructure is engineered and how our cities and towns are designed. With on-demand mobility solutions the need for city centre parking will be reduced, freeing up space for living, commerce or leisure.
