Icona in Shanghai with 3 prototypes
For Icona Nucleus, after the success of Geneva, Beijing, Los Angeles and Paris, the time has come to present itself to the audience of the Shanghai autoshow. But this time it is not the only protagonist.
On the stage of the Chinese event, in fact, comes the premiere of a completely autonomous vehicle for moving and distributing goods. The logistics vehicle is a working prototype developed in collaboration with the Chinese e-commerce giant JD and is intended to cover the distances between the loading stations and the various final warehouses.
Space for the Space-pod, a small autonomous food delivery robot designed by Icona for the e-commerce platform Meituan, a Chinese leader among service companies, presented for the first time at Ces in Las Vegas in January 2019.
Teresio Gigi Gaudio, president of Icona Shanghai, says: "Nucleus, the Space-pod and the third vehicle for logistics are three aspects of the same revolutionary approach to urban mobility for both the transport of people and goods. Our three studios in Turin, Shanghai and Los Angeles are pushing research to the limits of innovation and mobility, with useful ideas and visions for all our customers ".
