Mobilize to launch new Limo subscription-based electric car for ride-hailing at Munich IAA Mobility 2021
The Mobilize Limo comes out of a collaboration between Renault Group and Jiangling Motors
Mobilize will reveal their new Limo at Munich IAA Mobility 2021. Limo is an all-electric four-door saloon designed specifically for taxis, private hire vehicles and fleet use. Available exclusively via a subscription service, the offer will provide all-inclusive mobility solutions packages.
Mobilize Limo comes from the joint venture created by Renault Group and Jiangling Motors in 2018. It harnesses the know-how and experience in emobility, vehicles and services, that Renault Group and its network have been fostering for more than 10 years.
Clotilde Delbos, Mobilize CEO, said: "The first Mobilize model, Limo, is the new brand’s response to the evolution of the ride-hailing market. This offer, which combines a vehicle and flexible services, fully illustrates Mobilize's ability to the changing needs of vehicle users.
“It also demonstrates a unique know-how resulting from the experience of the Renault Group in mobility services and RCI Bank and Services’ strength in financing.”
The Limo is set to be unveiled on the Renault stand at Munich IAA Mobility 2021 as part of the special day dedicated to Mobilize on September 8. A fleet of 40 Mobilize Limo will then be deployed to validate the services it will offer throughout Europe starting in the second half of 2022.
Gilles Normand, Mobilize vehicle director, said: "Limo's electric motor is its number one asset. It makes it ideal for use in cities, where ride-hailing is very popular. And wherever it is used.
“Its range of more than 280 miles (451km) offers drivers one or even two full days of work without recharging. Statutory, spacious, connected, Limo demonstrates Mobilize's ability to meet the needs of both professionals and consumers.”
Throughout Europe, the ride-hailing market for both taxis and private hire, is booming and set to grow from €28 billion today to €50 billion by 2030. It is also a market that will experience a fast and widespread increase in electrification, with electric models soon becoming essential for those wishing to access city centres facing traffic restrictions such as the low emissions zones (LEZ) that are being introduced across the continent.
Mobilize Limo is therefore a good solution for drivers looking for premium emissions-free vehicles that are cheap to run. With a battery that offers around 280 miles (451km) of range and a driving experience that is silent, smooth and vibration-free, this is a vehicle that will alleviate many concerns drivers and fleet managers may have when it comes to electric mobility.
