The company recently submitted a draft of an unmanned space shuttle, the ability to independently carry passengers in "smart" cities.
While almost do not tell anything about the shuttle.

The shuttle will be called Orbit and after will have all chances to become the new generation of public transport - in comparison with other similar buses, there will be more seats. Exactly how much - is not specified, but if you take in comparing similar projects from other manufacturers, which usually has six seats, we can assume that due to the lack of Fisker Orbit cabin seats can be increased up to eight. In addition, inside the cabin to install a large display, which will show the current route with stops. The Fisker note that the Orbit will not have to wait long. Roads "smart" city Hakim Unique bus will be available at the end of the next, in 2018.

So, VolgaBUS company independently develops modular unmanned platform "MATROSHKA", based on which it will be possible to mount the passenger shuttle or cargo platform on electric.
