NEVS is the successor of the famous SAAB, which is engaged in creating electric cars in a recognizable style. But it was decided not to stop there. The Swedes shared their new development, which was dubbed the safe driver-less shuttle. The Sango is intended to become a new round of development in the field of public transport.

It has received a powertrain that includes an electric motor and lithium-ion batteries. One battery charge is enough to cover 200 km of road. At the same time, the speed of its movement will be limited to 15 km/h. However, the engineers plan to increase speed. Over time, it will increased to 50 km/h.

According to preliminary information, the driver-less shuttle will be operated in Stockholm. At the testing stage, only 10 cars will drive on the roads of the city. Each of them will have 6 seats, sliding doors and a low floor for easy movement of low-mobility groups, as well as special curtains and Wi-Fi.

NEWS believes that the Sango will become a full-fledged competitor to similar shuttles of world manufacturers. However, all of them are in experimental stages. In addition, the advantage of the vehicle is that passengers do not need to worry about parking and repairs.

Such a shuttle is the centerpiece of the Swedish environmental infrastructure being developed. It is worth noting that only 5% of cars in the world are currently operated without causing harm to the environment. This number is very small. It is for this reason that the Swedes decided to create the new PONS ecosystem, in which the NEVS Sango will play an important role.
