Mobilize is to launch its Limo fully-electric four-door saloon, designed specifically for taxis, private hire vehicles and fleet use.
The vehicle comes from the joint venture created by Renault Group and Jiangling Motors Group Co (JMCG) in 2018 and is available exclusively via a subscription service.
It is due to be unveiled on the Renault stand at Munich IAA Mobility 2021 on September 8, and a fleet of 40 will then be deployed to validate the services it will offer throughout Europe starting in the second half of 2022.
Mobilize Limo comes with a high-performance 110kW (150hp) all-electric motor delivering 220Nm of immediately available torque and has a 0-62mph time of 9.6 seconds as well as a top speed set to 87mph.
Drivers can choose between three driving modes (Eco, Normal, Sport) and the Limo has also been fitted with a Vehicle Sound for Pedestrians (VSP) system that warns pedestrians and other vehicles of the car’s presence.
Mobilize Limo uses a liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 60kWh offering 280 miles between recharging sessions.
The vehicle is compatible with the most common types of AC and DC charging systems, which means it can connect to all public charging stations and home wallbox setups.
It can also be recharged on a regular power outlet and with fast charging, the battery can topped up to around 150 miles in just 40 minutes.
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 offers drivers one or even two full days of work without recharging.”
