With our demo car ‘Link & Go,’ we became a pioneer in autonomous driving 10 years ago and thanks to this project we continue to innovate and invent the future of mobility. Combining ICONIQ’s expertise in smart passenger vehicles and W Motors’ unsurpassed design, together we will build the next generation of mobility.”
