Mobilize unveils the Bento at the Solutrans show, a small electric machine equipped with a box with a useful volume of 1 m3.
At the Solutrans show in Lyon, the Renault group will make the splits. Le Losange will unveil as a world premiere the new generation of its largest utility vehicle, the Master. In contrast, Mobilize, its subsidiary dedicated to new mobility, will present the Bento, a micro-utility.
The Bento is derived from the Duo, the small machine which will replace the Renault Twizy. The latter existed in a Cargo version, but here, the rear part is revised with the addition of a real box. This allows for a useful volume of 1 m3 (with 80 kg payload). The Bento is therefore designed for the delivery of goods and services (repairs, maintenance, personal services, on-demand deliveries, etc.) in urban and peri-urban areas. Mobilize will offer arrangements for the box, and it can have a personalized appearance.
In the transformation, we inevitably lose a place. The Bento therefore only has one, with a passenger compartment entirely sheltered by doors that are largely glass. These doors have an elytral opening (vertical). The Bento has an airbag and air conditioning.
Designed for businesses, the Bento has an access and start system via a digital key accessible from a smartphone. For fleet management, the vehicle is connected. Certain vehicle data is transmitted in real time to a secure online server (such as battery charge status or vehicle location).
The Bento is 100% electric, so no problem with ZFEs. It can go up to 80 km/h and promises a range of 140 km. The charging cable, attached to the vehicle, is Standard Type (domestic use) or Type 2 (compatible with public terminals on roads, in businesses or car parks).
The Bento will be available during the first half of 2024.
