Citroën, accor and jcdecaux together conceive the future of autonomous urban mobility for all
To put pleasure and service back at the heart of urban transport, Citroën, Accor and JCDecaux have formed a visionary collective: The Urban Collëctif. This association has given rise to a brand new mobility concept, illustrated by The Citroën Skate, a mobility technology platform, combined with 3 Pods offering 3 new and dedicated services: Sofitel En Voyage, Pullman Power Fitness and JCDecaux City Provider.
CITROËN X ACCOR
A cosy and sophisticated space
The Sofitel En Voyage Pod can carry two to three people on board in exceptionally comfortable and serviced conditions. It works like a luxury valet. Guests can enjoy the unique Sofitel hotels' hospitality experience throughout their stay, both on site at the hotel and during their city trips: a sophisticated and "French style" transport experience.
CITROËN X ACCOR
Deliberately futuristic atmosphere
The Pullman Power Fitness Pod has a striking glass bubble that is both dark and bright. A digital coach on the holographic screen means the occupant doesn’t lose focus while still being able to look out on the world outside, as well as making enquiries, getting information about their journey and being entertained during their cardio session. Exercising on the exercise bike or rowing machine also recharges the batteries in The Citroën Skate.
CITROËN X JCDECAUX
Timeless design offering comfort and space on board
The JCDecaux City Provider Pod has pure forms, a timeless and understated design offering comfort and space on board. Up to 5 people can travel in an open, welcoming and bright space providing excellent views of the city. Inside, passengers have grab bars to ensure safe travel and USB ports for charging all of their mobile devices. Two screens with interactive maps are provided, one facing outwards and the other inwards.
CITROËN ADVANCED COMFORT®
Innovation for even more comfort
To provide unparalleled driving comfort during travel, as well as to accommodate the Pods comfortably and without jolts, The Citroën Skate is fitted with movable Hydraulic Cushions.
Citroën rhymes with comfort, whatever the type of vehicle.
With the goodyear signature
Goodyear has developed Eagle 360 wheels, omnidirectional, consisting of spherical tyres incorporating small electric motors. These innovative wheels give the robot total freedom of movement over 360°.
Moving towards infinite pods meeting a variety of uses
The open-source development of The Citroën Skate allows everyone to develop a compatible Pod if it complies with Citroën's technical interface specifications.
Thanks to the separation of The Citroën Skate which generates travel and the Pod, creativity can explode in terms of services, uses and individual or collective mobility. In addition to the Pods designed with Accor and JCDecaux, other possibilities are therefore endlessly possible.
