《Toyota Prius》改裝的無人駕駛送貨車!《Nuro》獲營業許可 讓外送員即將失業啦

美國矽谷機器人新創公司《Nuro》獲得加州汽機車管理局(Department of Motor Vehicles,DMV)批准上路,是加州首度獲得商業自駕車營業許可的車款,未來可運送食品、飲料、藥品等日常用品。

Nuro創立於2016年,並在2018年1月正式發布首款產品R1,重1,500磅(約680公斤)、高1.8公尺,寬度約為一般轎車的一半,是一款自動駕駛商務送貨車,並以Toyota Prius油電混合車款改裝;該車輛僅能運載貨物,約可容納12個食品雜貨袋。

之後,Nuro推出自家研發的R2車款,不僅車速慢、沒有方向盤和油門等控制介面、一樣只提供包裹擺放空間,時速上限40km/h,且規定只能於晴天時特定街區行駛,不過可以乘載約181公斤的貨物,且配備傳感器、照相機和雷達,以確保貨品可以安全到達目的地。設計的重點之一是希望可以幫助老年人接收日常生活必需品,也許未來可能會看到這款自動駕駛車可以提供更多重要的物資,例如運送血液、藥品。

Nuro在去(2020)年4月時可以為醫院提供非商業性質的服務,在同年12月23日獲頒許可證,表示未來可用於商業目的,不得不承認,疫情期間能夠擁有這項服務真的是恰到好處,能減少許多與人接觸的疑慮,卻又能得到商品的配送。

Nuro表示,過去幾年與DMV進行多次的交流、協商,確保在監管下,可以在加州提供自動駕駛服務。品牌決策者 David Estrada也說:「在COVID-19期間,我們深刻了解自動駕駛汽車的潛力。在加州道路開放無人駕駛R2送貨車,對於Nuro和自動駕駛行業而言,都是重要的開端。」

預計未來兩年在美國可看見最多約5,000 台Nuro低速自動快遞車,雖然尚不能夠在全球普及,且擁有許多上路限制,不過這朝無人駕駛的未來依然邁出的重要一步。

The UK’s new car sales charts were topped by an EV in December, the Tesla Model 3, which outsold market stalwarts like the Volkswagen Golf and the Ford Fiesta.

The American EV manufacturer managed to shift 5,798 Model 3s in December, beating its nearest competitor, the Golf, by more than a thousand units. VW’s icon came in second with 4,470 new registrations, and the Fiesta was third with 3,367.

This, according to Autocar, is the second time Tesla has topped the sales charts, the previous one being last April. As for last month, sales figures were boosted by the fact that big batch of Teslas arrived in the country in November.

The figures are big news for supporters of electric vehicles, as UK’s EV sales jumped by 185.9 percent in 2020 to 108,205 units, up from 37,850 in 2019. Norway, for the first time in 2020, saw more new EVs registered on the roads than internal-combustion vehicles. In the UK, the number was closer to 10 percent of all new vehicle registrations, a stark increase from 2019, when EVs accounted for just one out of every 30 new cars registered.

Despite its success last month in the UK, Tesla wasn’t the best selling EV in Europe, as that honor goes to the Volkswagen ID.3 despite its launch being delayed by software issues. Moreover, UK’s overall best seller in 2020 was the Fiesta, with 49,179 registrations, with the Vauxhall Corsa (46,439) and the Golf (43,109) coming in second and third respectively and no all-electric vehicle making it into the top 10.

Still, Tesla nearly reached a production milestone this year, delivering 449,550 vehicles – just 450 units short of CEO Elon Musk’s goal of 500,000. Despite coming just shy of its target, the company managed to produce more than 500,000 new vehicles, which Musk is taking as a moral victory.

Sales look set to continue growing, too. Musk and the transport minister of India recently revealed that Tesla will begin selling vehicles in the country this year. The market is the world’s fifth largest for automobiles and the government is planning billions of dollars in investments to encourage its citizens to buy EVs.
