NAVYA ENTERS THE JAPANESE MARKET
NAVYA sold two AUTONOM SHUTTLES to SB Drive Corp. in March. With this new sale, NAVYA is continuing its international conquest and demonstrating that the new smart mobility solutions it is offering can anticipate passenger expectations.
SB Drive, a subsidiary of SoftBank Corp., is an entity created last year to develop autonomous vehicle technology for public transport. SB Drive conducts social trials of self-driving technologies. Currently SB Drive has smart mobility partnership agreements with four municipalities in Japan.
A VERY FIRST IN JAPAN
A research committee has done all the tests a few days before a first trial.
From July 18 to July 23, and for the first time in Japan, an autonomous driverless and 100% electric shuttle circulated in the Shiba Park in Tokyo which attracted more than 800 people in 5 days.
NAVYA continues its expansion in Asia after sales in Singapour, China (Honk Kong) and now Japan. Today 45 shuttles are deployed all around the world and they have already transported up to 170.000 passengers.
The road to a new mobility in Asia is on the way !
