[DE] #seeitnovo – The mobility of tomorrow in every day practise [updatedx2]

Siemens has released the ‘Novo’ test car – a car that will be used to validate new concepts in everyday practice. Siemens states it is a concept train ‘derived from a different way of thinking – rediscovering the familiar’.

The Novo test car is built to test the robustness of new ideas, to see how they function in real life, as Siemens doesn’t want to rely on digital simulations only. The test car was released on 09.04.2018. A nice video can be seen here.

The #seeitnovo hashtag in social media should deliver more information about the project in the future.
