Amazon Zoox Announces Autonomous Electric Vehicle

The self-driving car company that Amazon acquired this year has unveiled a four-seater “Robotaxi,” a compact multi-directional vehicle designed for dense urban environments.

The carriage-style interior of the vehicle manufactured by Zoox Inc. has two benches facing each other. There is no handle. It’s just under 12 feet long, about 1 foot shorter than a standard Mini Cooper.

It was one of the first vehicles to have two-way capability and four-wheel steering, allowing for better maneuverability. The maximum speed is 75 mph.

The vehicle is being tested in its base in Foster City, California, Las Vegas and San Francisco, Zukes said Monday.

Based in Foster City, Silicon Valley, Zoox was founded in 2014 and was acquired by Amazon in June. It operates as an independent subsidiary on Amazon.
