Cabify to integrate 40 Mobilize vehicles into Madrid fleet
In Madrid the Spanish ride-hailing company Cabify is to operate the first fleet of the electric sedan presented by the Renault mobility brand Mobilize last year. This involves an initial 40 vehicles.
Mobilize says that under the agreement between Mobilize and Cabify, 40 examples of the Mobilize Limo will be integrated into the fleet of Vecttor, a Madrid-based subsidiary of the Cabify group. The electric sedan comes with a WLTP range of 450 kilometres and has been optimised for ride-hailing use.
The Spanish ride hailing company will become the world’s first Mobilize Driver Solutions customer, according to the Renault subsidiary. This is a special all-in-one offer for companies in the passenger transport industry, which aims to make the costs of acquiring and using vehicles more transparent.
“With Mobilize Driver Solutions, we want to offer a one-stop shop of solutions that make life easier for people transport professionals,” says Fedra Ribeiro, COO of Mobilize. “The upcoming launch of our service in Madrid, then in Paris, is our way of helping them with innovative, integrated solutions that favour green mobility.”
The 4.67-metre electric sedan will be offered in the Cabify Eco category, which is aimed at business customers. Only electrified vehicles are included in this category. In addition, the Mobilize sedan will also be available for private customers.
For Cabify or Vecttor, the 40 Mobilize vehicles are only a small part of the overall plan for its own fleet: in mid-May, the company announced its intention to purchase a total of 1,400 electric cars in Spain. So Mobilize could still be in for more orders.
Earlier this month, Renault’s mobility brand Mobilize said it aims to double its leasing fleet financed by Mobilize Financial Services by 2025 and grow to one million electric vehicles by 2030. These are to make up 70 per cent of the fleet and generate 20 per cent of Renault Group’s turnover.
