Vision & Mission
NAVYA is dedicated to sustainably transforming the way in which we live and work by reinventing urban mobility. Driverless, more intelligent and cleaner, NAVYA’s new mobility solutions give humankind a new kind of “autonomy”.
Since it was founded, NAVYA’s vocation has been to find solutions for mobility challenges that are linked to increasingly dense populations in city centers and their consequences on the environment and traffic management, including congestion.
Over 1 Billion Cars used in the World
- In 2050, 70% of the world’s population will be concentrated in cities
- Over 1 billion cars are currently in use around the world
- In 2016, drivers spent over 65 hours in traffic jams in Paris, far behind Moscow (91 hours) and Los Angeles (104 hours) (source: INRIX 2016 study)
- 3 million deaths are caused by car accidents ever year around the world (source: World Health Organization (WHO))
- The WHO predicts that in 2030, 2.3 million people will die as a result of a road accident
- Outdoor air pollution, partly a result of automobile traffic, causes 2.6 million deaths each year around the world (source: WHO)
NAVYA Moves from Mobility to Being Fluid
With AUTONOMs – AUTONOM SHUTTLE as a shuttle service and AUTONOM CAB for individual trips – NAVYA offers a continuous mobility experience that is increasingly effective. Mobility is fluid.
Serving intelligent mobility, NAVYA’s mission is to make cities all over the world fluid.
Whether complementing existing urban transport methods or running on private sites, NAVYA’s AUTONOMS are now THE ideal solution for the first and last mile and for easing road congestion in city centers.
By reinventing travel methods at the heart of urban complexity, NAVYA provides a fluid, connected, safe and clean mobility experience for all citizens.
So that everyone can enjoy their city as a simple space that is pleasant to live in.
Each Quarter, Traffic Jams Increase by 6% around the World
- 50% of the world’s population lives in cities (70% in 2050), on 2% of the world’s territory
- Every quarter, traffic jams increase by 6% around the world, despite the implementation of new public transportation networks, the growth in carpooling, and the use of dissuasive methods.
- Every year, drivers in Los Angeles spend on average 104 hours in traffic jams; 91 hours in Moscow; 79 hours in Bogota; 73 hours in London; 65.3 hours in Paris; 64 hours in Bangkok; 58.6 hours in Istanbul.
- The yearly cost of traffic jams around the world is estimated at $340 billion.
