The platform with an electric motor is developed by the company itself. The battery modules are removable and can be replaced without any problems. You can use not only electricity, but also other alternative sources: gas or hydrogen.

There is no place for the driver – everything is autonomous. Due to this, the space for passengers has been increased: six passengers can fit. Also FLIP can be used to transport goods.

FLIP is equipped with cameras, radars and lidars for orientation in space.

The FLIP electric platform allows you to remove all the restrictions dictated by the layout of standard vehicles. Combined with the flexible architecture of the self-driving technology developed by SberAutoTech, this will allow us to offer solutions for a wide variety of areas: cargo transportation, the last mile, taxi. These technologies are the future, and we are proud that the development of this direction has become possible thanks to the synergy within the ecosystem and the engineering solutions of SberAutoTech.

The drone supports Sber’s services: 2GIS for navigation, SberSvuk for music, and Okko as an online cinema. Well, the assistant “Salut”, of course, is.

Now FLIP is being tested in closed areas, and it will be presented to the public at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which will be held from 2 to 5 June.
