At CES-2020 show the concept of the autonomous bus Rinspeed MetrosnapJanuary 3, 2020
Rinspeed Metrosnap is the latest development of the Swiss brand, which is designed to show the capabilities of the latest automotive technologies. The concept will debut at this year’s CES Consumer Electronics Show.
Metrosnap is an autonomous modular vehicle that uses the innovations of the previous concepts of the Swiss company, called Snap and Microsnap. “A decisive step in the mass production of our developments has already been taken,” said Rinspeed boss Frank M. Rinderknecht about the new creation of his company.
The concept of all models of the Snap family is to create a chassis that can support the installation of completely different cabs and even make it possible to replace them depending on the needs of the client. Although this general idea is not new, Rinspeed has patents for ways to make replacing these cabs “easy, fast, safe, and inexpensive.”
On a single charge, the Metrosnap has a range of 130 kilometers. Its three-phase asynchronous electric motor develops a torque of 57 Nm, and the maximum speed is 85 km / h. Weissar brand, which is designed to show the capabilities of the latest automotive technologies. The concept will debut at this year’s CES Consumer Electronics Show.
The design of the bus separates the batteries of each cab from the chassis, and they can be charged separately. This means that if the bus runs out of charge, someone can switch any section and continue to move on its battery.
Rinspeed describes one of Metrosnap’s possible uses for delivering packages in the neighborhood. The parcel service loads the car by mail and can deliver the parcel to a person when he or she is at home and ready to send the parcel. Presumably, shipping may occur at any time of the day, because the Metrosnap concept is autonomous.
