Zoox designed the vehicle for cramped city streets, giving it the ability to drive in both directions and steer with all four wheels.
After six years in business, Zoox — Amazon's autonomous vehicle company — unveiled its first self-driving taxi. The firm on Monday took the wraps off of an electric "purpose-built robotaxi" that it developed for its future ride-hailing service.

The "carriage-style" vehicle has two bench seats that face one another and accommodates up to four passengers. It's designed to be fully self-driving and doesn't have a steering wheel.

Zoox developed the vehicle to shuttle passengers around in dense urban environments. As such, it's only 143 inches long — shorter than a Mini Cooper. It also has bidirectional-driving capabilities and four-wheel steering, which enables it to maneuver in small spaces and change directions without needing to reverse.
