Meet Sango, a self-driving, nature-friendly shuttle bus from Sweden
Swedish startup firm Sango has unveiled its first project: an autonomous all-electric minibus that it hopes represents the next evolution step in the public transportation industry. The team says it will soon proceed to test it out on Stockholm streets.
The shuttle bus comes powered by an array of lithium-ion batteries and a single electric motor. It can cover around 200 kilometers (124 miles) on a single charge and currently stays capped at 15 km/h (9.3 mph) for safety reasons. When the tech gets polished enough, the limit will be raised to 50 km/h (31 mph).
The cab offers six seats with optional partitions and Internet access for those willing to enjoy some privacy. The low, level floor is also there for the mobility-impaired.
No estimations exist on pricing and availability at this time.
