Navya to Produce Self-driving Electric Shuttles in Australia
Expanding Reach to Asia Pacific
The French government has agreed to manufacture Navya’s driverless shuttle buses in South Australia, according to Industry Update.
While the details are still unclear, including the exact manufacturing supply line and how many jobs will be created, SA Premier Jay Weatherill was able to confirm that the Government had “agreed on plans” to establish the company’s regional manufacturing facility in Australia.
“I look forward to partnering with Navya, as we work towards establishing their Asia-Pacific manufacturing operations here in South Australia.”
Navya CEO Christophe Sapet said the move was “a natural progression in our growth strategy and we are delighted to have been able to lay the groundwork of a partnership agreement with the Government of South Australia”.
