The electric Mobilize Limo undergoes Euro NCAP safety tests
Last summer 2021, Renault presented the Mobilize Limo, an all-electric saloon under the French company’s new brand, intended to serve as a taxi or VTC. Earlier this year, we learned that the Mobilize Limo would make its debut in Spain with Cabify’s fleet of vehicles.
Now, we have been able to find out what Euro NCAP thinks of the vehicle after having subjected the Mobilize Limo to its safety tests, where it obtained a score of four stars, out of the maximum 5 stars. Although it is not a vehicle for private individuals, it is important to know how safe it is as we can get into a vehicle at any time when using taxi or VTC services.
As we said, Euro NCAP has awarded it a score of 4 out of 5 stars, having obtained the following score in each of the sections: in ‘Adult occupant’ it has obtained 80% out of 100, in ‘Child occupant’ a 75/100, in ‘Vulnerable road users’ a 69 out of 100% and in ‘Safety Assist’ a 71 out of 100.
Looking in more detail at each of these categories, in the ‘Adult Occupant’ section, it scored 11.1 out of 16 points in ‘Frontal Impact’, 13.6/16 in ‘Side Impact’, 3.7 out of 4 points in ‘Rear Impact’ and the highest score in ‘Rescue and Extrication’ with 2 out of 2 points.
In ‘Child occupant’, it scored 20 out of 24 points for ‘Crash test performance based on 6 and 10 year olds’ (16 points for ‘Frontal impact’ and 4 points for ‘Side impact’), 5 out of 13 points for ‘Protective features’ and 5 out of 12 points for ‘CRS installation check’.
In the ‘Vulnerable road users’ category, it scored 24.9 out of 36 points for ‘Pedestrian impact protection’ and a score of 12.8/18 points for ‘AEB for vulnerable road users’.AEB for vulnerable road users (VRU)’, which is further divided into ‘AEB for pedestrians’ where it scored 6.4 out of 9 points and ‘AEB for cyclists’ with 6.4 out of 9 points.
Finally, in the ‘Safety Assist’ section, it scored 2.4 out of 3 points for ‘Speed Assist’, 0 points for ‘Driver Condition Monitoring’, 3 out of 4 points for ‘Lane Change Assist’ and 4 out of 6 points for ‘Car to Car AEB’.
Euro NCAP says the Renault-Jiangling Mobilize joint venture’s Limo electric saloon “has generally strong results, but does not stand out due to a lack of equipment or marginal performance in some of the active safety tests“.
