“The vehicle is built on a completely new platform designed around safety and comfort, engineered solely for autonomous driving using the Mobileye Drive autonomous platform,” a Verne spokesperson stated. “It is completely rethought, conceived, designed, and engineered as a safe and comfortable autonomous vehicle.”

Verne’s approach includes extensive passenger amenities such as a sophisticated sound system and a large display with a user interface tailored to various passenger preferences, despite lacking a traditional driver.

Verne plans to launch initially in Zagreb, with expansion into European and Middle Eastern markets soon after. The company anticipates leveraging the benefits of an autonomous connected fleet to ensure efficient and reliable service across different urban landscapes.
