On Monday 10 September 2018, the Lower Rhine manufacturer Lohr and the mobility operator Transdev presented the fruit of their joint project, the autonomous electric vehicle, “i-Cristal”. Two road tests were announced for the end of the year.
Is i-Cristal tomorrow’s mode of transport? Jean-François Argence answers all of our questions on LOHR New Mobilities.
The Lohr industrial group and Transdev, a mobility operator, unveiled the i-Cristal, a new autonomous electric vehicle at Lohr’s assembly site in Duppigheim.
The i-Cristal shuttle, the latest creation from Lohr Industrie’s production facilities and designed in partnership with Transdev, was unveiled with great fanfare in Duppigheim.
The Viia Calais – Orbassano rolling motorway will start up in September 2018 with an experimental phase lasting until December. In January 2019, the train will be increased to 21 double LOHR UIC wagons and will be split into two from Saint-Jean-de-Maurienne to Orbassano.
LOHR and Transdev are presenting an autonomous shuttle at the Transports Publics exhibition. The shuttle is currently being tested in Rouen and will be brought into circulation in the second half of 2018.

A third player will soon be active on the autonomous shuttle market, or rather two partners. These are the industrialist LOHR, and the operator Transdev, who are developing i-Cristal, a driverless vehicle able to carry 16 people.
