Imagine you have an early morning meeting in a neighbouring city and require your own set of wheels to move around town.

You have two options to get there – a short-hop flight from a local airport or drive for hours to your destination. The Volvo 360c autonomous vehicle concept could be an alternative to short-haul flights.

Volvo said: "Increasingly, car sharing and subscription services are complementing traditional car ownership patterns. And while we believe that many people will still want to have their own car, others will switch to alternative mobility solutions as they become available.

"We believe that this type of mobility solution will be ubiquitous, changing the nature of the way we travel and the way we plan and build our cities."



Safety by Volvo

The 360c also introduces a proposal for a standardised autonomous vehicle communication system that will enable other road users and autonomous vehicles to understand what the concept car will do next. Volvo said: "We believe that such a standardised system will play an integral part in making autonomous vehicle travel a safe and pleasant reality."
