When announcing its strategic plan for the coming years called Renaulution, the Le Losange brand unveiled a fourth division in the group called Mobilize and intended for the development of new mobility services.
“Mobilize goes further than the automobile. The brand offers new solutions for transporting people and goods from point A to point B, with or without a car. “
In this case, the Renault Twizy electric quadricycle launched in 2012 cannot really be considered a new transport solution. On the other hand, this one will have descendants with the EZ-1 concept presented this morning during the Renaulution event. At Mobilize, it will be supported by three other vehicles: the Dacia Spring, a sedan and a small van.
A 4th brand
Indeed on this occasion, Luca de Meo the CEO of the Renault group unveiled a fourth brand that will take place alongside Renault, Dacia and Alpine. Mobilize will be dedicated to mobility and energy services.
Mobilize’s ambition is important, since through data services and energy trading, the brand wishes to represent at least 20% of the Renault group’s turnover by 2030.
Clotilde Delbos, CEO of Mobilize said: “Thanks to numerous partners, we will constantly seek to maximize the use of the car for simpler, more sustainable and accessible journeys for people and goods, while reducing the environmental impact”.

EZ-1 for carsharing
The first born of the new brand will be the EZ-1 concept from 2023. A two-seater quadricycle of 2.3 m very close to the current Twizy. It is true that the latter is also available as a “Cargo” variant for transporting small goods in towns. Very practical for some delivery companies.
However, the mode of use of the EZ-1 will be different since it is intended for a rental offer based on time or mileage.
“Its users will only pay for what they use, based on time or mileage. Connected, the vehicle offers keyless access and interacts with its users via their smartphone ”.
But the most important novelty concerns the batteries and recharging, since unlike the Twizy, the EZ-1 will have a battery exchange system in order to be able to run continuously. The objective will be to reduce the gap between the use and the cost of a vehicle per hour. Bonus: no need to wait at the charging stations!
