In the second half of 2022, unique new cars will appear on city streets for certain markets.
It is called the Mobilize Limo, the new all-electric sedan from Renault , which is designed to be the vehicle of choice for those working in mobility services.
Examples are taxis , ride-hailing services, and private vehicle rentals – and those will only be available through subscriptions.
You can’t really buy it, and that’s a shame.
The car will make its global premiere at the Munich Motor Show in September. However, this digital reveal has revealed a very stylish vehicle inside and out.
The sedan measures 183.9 inches (4.67 meters) – slightly smaller than the standard mid-size sedan – with a 108.3-inch (2.75-meter) wheelbase, allowing for 11.33 inches (288 meters) of rear seat knee space. millimeter).
Rear seat comfort is further enhanced thanks to the flat floor, comfortable seating for three adults and two USB ports.
Rear passengers also have access to volume control knobs, adjustable air vents and reading lights.
According to its purpose, the design of the Mobilize Limo is indeed focused on passengers in the back seat.
However, the driver also does not mind sitting behind the steering wheel, considering the area is very ergonomically designed.
There are two large screens on the stylish dashboard – 10.25 inches for the instrument panel, and 12.3 inches for the infotainment system.
A refrigerated storage compartment is also located between the two front seats.
The sedan uses a “high-performance” electric motor, which produces 150 horsepower (110 kilowatts) and 162 pound-feet (220 Newton-meters) of torque.
It has a top speed of 86 miles/hour (140 km/h), and can hit 62 miles/hour (100 km/h) in 9.6 seconds.
The Mobilze Limo features a 60 kWh battery pack, which offers an electric range of approximately 279 miles (450 km) on a WLTP cycle.
The fast charging feature can increase the range to 155 miles (250 km) in about 40 minutes – which is the average daily mileage for the majority of professional drivers.
The Mobilize Limo also comes with eight airbags and several safety features, such as adaptive cruise control, blind-spot detection, lane-keeping assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and more.
The Winter Pack option will add heated seats and steering wheel.
The sedan features full LED lighting, flush door handles, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, and the Mobilize logo inside and out.
Overall, it’s a cool vehicle with an attractive business model. However, it will be a year before we start seeing it on the streets.
Let’s see if this breakthrough from Renault will be successful.
