WEpods are tested in the first half of 2016 on the campus of Wageningen University. If this test phase is successful, the route will be gradually expanded along the Food Innovation Strip, to the Ede-Wageningen intercity railway station, driving on public roads.

  • Maximum speed 40 km/h (in the test phase the WEpod drives at 25 km/h)
