The new business plan presented today by Renault has shown how the French Group is increasingly focused on a sustainable and low environmental impact future. Confirmation is the birth of new Mobilize division which is based on “pay per use” car sharing with a range of 100% electric vehicles and which offers new mobility services.
The main objectives of the new Business Unit are to reduce the environmental impact of mobility and to improve the residual value of the vehicle. It also focuses on flexible mobility services that are aimed not only at the final consumer, but above all at companies and state bodies that want to optimize and manage their fleets in the best possible way with an eye to the future.
This will also be possible thanks to the distribution of dedicated management software created by the new Renault IT department: Software Republic.
A zero-emissions fleet
The fleet of vehicles made available by Mobilize is made up of 100% electric vehicles. The car sharing service, in fact, will be available starting this year with the Dacia Spring. Subsequently, the fleet will expand with other dedicated models: in 2022 it will be the turn of a new sedan while in 2023 it will be the turn of the EZ-1, the two-seater concept with electric powertrain. The introduction of electric vans for freight transport is also planned in the future.
In parallel with the spread of car sharing, Mobilize will invest in various services related to the spread of battery-powered vehicles such as the development and installation of intelligent charging and storage systems for electricity.
Ideal for the city
The diversity between the various models proposed within the fleet means that Mobilize can respond to all customer needs. The EZ-1 prototype, presented today, for example, embodies the new concept of mobility proposed. It is a super compact vehicle (2.3 meters) very similar to the Renault Twizy and ideal for traveling between urban traffic, made with 50% recycled materials.
The EZ-1 will have no key and can be opened and turned on using the mobile phone. To avoid prolonged charging stops, the vehicle will be equipped with a particular Battery Swap technology that will allow you to directly replace the modules of the battery pack.
