Renault with the Mobilize brand promotes the mobility of the future, which according to his vision must be smart, greener, more shared and more accessible, for everyone and everywhere, in one sustainable world.
In fact, Mobilize goes beyond the automotive sector and promotes the ecological transition with flexible and sustainable mobility and energy solutions, use oriented.
What is Mobilize?
Mobilize is one of the 4 Business Units of Renault Renaulution relaunch plan for the development of solutions for more sustainable mobility. Mobilize sets itself the objectives of facilitate the adoption of electric vehicles, to allow a better energy management, to offer a second life to batteries and recycle them, propose coherent and accessible mobility services, design vehicles for specific uses, to develop software platforms avant-garde.
To contribute to a more sustainable future, Mobilize offers mobility solutions and services complementary compared to traditional scheme based on the purchase of cars, it promotes greater use of goods thanks to the‘circular economy and sharing and designing smart charging and energy storage solutions.
Mobilize thus responds to concrete problems with a series of solutions which can be integrated into the so-called Smart Island or in other smart territories, to help them reach the zero emissions goal.
Energy from electric car batteries
When they are no longer suitable for use in the automotive sector, the batteries of electric vehicles still have a lot of value. Between early life in vehicles and the recycling, batteries can, in fact, continue to provide energy for multiple applications. Mobilize has signed an agreement with Betteries, a German start-up strongly active in the circular economy, to develop and assemble a mobile energy system, modular and multipurpose composed of battery modules from electric vehicles.
This easy-to-carry system is composed from 1 to 4 elements (betterPacks) from 2.3 kWh each, so as to achieve a capacity of 9.2 kWh, that is the equivalent of the average daily consumption of a family.
It is a system that boasts multiple uses and applications, when it is impossible to connect to the mains: construction sites, food trucks, solar energy storage, filming and events, but can also be used on board small electric boats. Production of this innovative storage system will start in September 2021 at the Re-Factory of the Renault Group in Flins.
Mobilize Duo, Bento and Hippo electric vehicles
Mobilize also proposes 3 mobility offers, or three 100% electric vehicles, for the transport of people and goods: “tailor-made” vehicles that place service and user experience at the center of their design. The vehicles designed by Mobilize are not only innovative in their concept, but also in their marketing: why they are not meant to be sold! Their users will pay, in fact, only for the use, in based on time and mileage.
Mobilize Duo is the name of the vehicle that will be proposed for shared mobility, 100% electric, compact and connected, for 2 people and is designed for car sharing. Designed in accordance with the principles of the circular economy, Mobilize Duo aims to complement the 50% recycled materials in its production and to be 95% recyclable, at the end of its life, thanks to the Renault Group’s Re-Factory in Flins.
Mobilize Bento is the name of the vehicle that will be proposed for delivery and the transport of space-saving goods. Designed on the basis of Mobilize Duo it is equipped with a load compartment to allow the transport of small objects, with a total volume that can reach 1 m3.
Mobilize Hippo is the name of the modular vehicle that will be proposed for the delivery of the last mile. The new electric light commercial vehicle offers several interchangeable load modules to meet the needs of its users (refrigerated transport, parcel delivery, etc.), with a load capacity of 200 kg and up to approx 3 m3.

Sustainable energy ecosystem
Mobilize has the ambitious goal of accompanying the transformation of the automotive sector and, to do so, leverages the ecosystems of complementary partners. ‘Mobilité360’ is a perfect example of this. In fact, this project brings together some protagonists of mobility – BlaBlaCar, Mobilize, the RATP Group and Uber – to share a common vision of the mobility of the future.
These leaders intend to leverage their complementary skills and have a coordinated approach to propose simpler, green, sustainable and shared mobility solutions together, at the service of cities and citizens.
