Mobilize has unveiled Limo, a fully-electric four door saloon, specifically for taxi/PHV drivers and fleet. Available solely on subscription, the offer will include packages and à la carte mobility solutions.


Mobilize Limo has materialised as part of a the joint venture created by Renault Group and Jiangling Motors Group Co., Ltd (JMCG) in 2018.

This latest model will be unveiled for the very first time at Munich IAA Mobility 2021, at the Renault stand, as part of the special day dedicated to Mobilize on 8 September. A fleet of 40 Mobilize Limo will then be deployed throughout Europe starting in the second half of 2022.


Clotilde Delbos, CEO of Mobilize, said: “The first Mobilize model, Limo, is the response of our new brand to the evolution of the ride-hailing market. This offer, which combines a vehicle and flexible services, fully illustrates Mobilize's ability to accompany users in their new needs. 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.”

Mobilize Limo will target taxi and private hire drivers looking for emission-free vehicles that are ‘prestigious and cheap to run’. With a battery that offers around 450 km (280 miles) between charges (pending WLTP certification) and a driving experience that is said to be silent, smooth, and vibration-free. Mobilize hope the vehicle will alleviate any concerns drivers and fleet managers may have when it comes to shifting to electric vehicles.

Mobilize Limo will be marketed as a joint offer combining both the vehicle and services for all sorts of drivers including taxis, PHVs, and other private transport services. Mobilize's offer will include a fully-fledged package of services with something for everyone whether they be full-time, part-time, or one-off drivers. These services will also be available for other Renault Group’s electric vehicles.

Managed by RCI Bank and Services, Mobilize rental agreements will include flexible mileage and contract duration. Casual drivers will have access to a pay-as-you-drive solution. For fleet operators running taxi/PHV services, Mobilize will leverage its network of start-up partner companies to offer a complete solution for their activity (fleet dispatching, payment, vehicle charging, connectivity…) in order to optimize their Total Cost of Operations (TCO) and operational excellence, at the service of customers.


Mobilize packages will also include various services such as manufacturer-backed warrantees, maintenance, insurance, and charging solutions. Such all-inclusive, competitive packages – with more details to follow – to give commercial operators peace of mind.
