Accor looks at autonomous mobility

Accor is to unveil “an autonomous urban mobility solution" next month, alongside Citroën and JCDecaux.

The group said that the project would focus on its Sofitel and Pullman as it sought to “bring its brands to life outside of its walls and in the heart of the city”.

Further details will be revealed on 4 November.

Sébastien Bazin, Accor chairman & CEO, said: “We are delighted to partner with Citroën and JCDecaux around this innovative project. With over 5,000 hotels throughout the world, our group is a key player in the local ecosystem, which is committed to offering ever more exclusive experiences, both for travellers and locals, while contributing to the development of sustainable cities. Extending the hotel experience outside the walls of our properties is in keeping with our bold and modern vision of hospitality.”
