Volvo Bubble is a single-seater autonomous vehicle that is part of a system for car sharing in the megacities of today and tomorrow. This system targets to give not only a new perspective to commuting into a megacity but also a fresh approach to the user experience of commuting for other important groups of our society like people with mobility issues.

We all know more or less, that public transport most of the time can be frustrating, especially for people with mobility issues. There are a plethora of examples from the problems that they daily phase, like difficulty in maneuvering in the vehicle, not being able to easily enter or exit from it, and sometimes they are even the target of comments and strange looks.

So this is where Volvo Bubble comes to play. It is designed to give to every user and especially those with mobility issues, a safe and personal mini world, that through warmness, the feeling of protection and personal space, makes commuting through a city a pleasurable experience for everyone.
