Mobilize Driver Solutions is Mobilize’s first service offering around Limo, which becomes a service platform. It is designed to make life easier for drivers and operators, a great comfort for their customers, and I am extremely proud of this first realization of our ‘vehicle-as-a-service’ model. With this complete offer, Mobilize facilitates the shift to clean, accessible and sustainable mobility.Clotilde Delbos, CEO of Mobilize.

Mobilize Limo: elegance, roominess and comfort for drivers and their customers

Thanks to its all-electric powertrain, Limo is not subject to any access restrictions in city centres, and the driver and all the passengers can therefore enjoy all the advantages of electric mobility: silence, responsiveness, and smoothness. Limo offers a safe and seamless driving experience, enhanced by a full range of driving aids. Its range of 450 km WLTP is enough to cover the daily journeys of ride-hailing professionals. It can recover up to 250 km of range in just 40 minutes thanks to its DC charger, fitted at standard on Limo.

Several vehicle features can be updated remotely via FOTA (Firmware-Over-The-Air). For fleet operators, real-time access to vehicle data facilitates their fleet management activities.

For passengers, the sedan offers generous and rewarding space that will satisfy even the most demanding customers. The boot has a capacity of 500 litres, unencumbered by the spare wheel fitted as standard under the car.

A first fleet of 40 vehicles in Madrid

Mobilize has signed its first Mobilize Driver Solutions contract with Cabify in Madrid. The agreement between Mobilize and Cabify covers the integration of forty Mobilize Limo into the fleet of Vecttor, a subsidiary of the Cabify group in Madrid. These vehicles will be included in the Cabify Eco category, which is already available to corporate customers who travel exclusively in electric cars. They will also be made available to private users of other Cabify categories.

Mobilize Driver Solutions will be available in Paris this autumn, before expanding to other cities in Europe in the coming months.

MOBILIZE DRIVER SOLUTIONS: LIBERTY MEETS SERENITY

INTRODUCTION

Cities are undergoing deep transformation to address a variety of mobility-related issues ranging from traffic and parking to pollution and noise. To tackle them, public authorities are principally hoping to reduce reliance on private cars, as solo driving is now dated. They encourage a shift towards other more eco-friendly and people-friendly alternatives. Electric cars for ride sharing tick all these boxes.

The ride-hailing market has been soaring steadily for several years, in particular thanks to the budding private hire vehicle (PHV) segment and is expected to grow by an unprecedented 80 % through 2030! Private drivers and fleet operators are directly impacted by traffic restrictions in large cities and rising fuel prices, so need to keep an eye on their profit margins. Here again, a competitive offer of electric vehicles is a natural answer to all these issues.

Pioneer in its approach to electric mobility, Mobilize is marketing an all-new Vehicle-as-a-Service (VaaS) solution. It is called Mobilize Driver Solutions, is exclusively for professional taxi and PHV drivers, and encompasses a range of Mobilize Limo leasing deals including a full set of services with flexible timeframes and mileage. Mobilize Limo is an all-electric saloon with a convenient 450 km WLTP range. It is elegant, spacious and comfortable enough to meet all of its users’ and their customers’ wants and needs.

Mobilize Driver Solutions is focused on addressing taxi drivers’ and chauffeurs’ requirements, treating them to the peace of mind that comes with a complete offer: a work tool they can trust and enjoy driving with top of the range featured and tailored services. The comprehensive bespoke package includes pre-financing, priority service in garages and dedicated customer support.

Mobilize Driver Solutions’ services starts in Madrid this June. The PHV company Cabify is the first customer of Mobilize Driver Solutions, integrating 40 Limos into its fleet as soon as the collaboration starts. The service will be available in Paris this autumn before expanding to other European cities in the coming months.
