Renault says it is is accelerating and creating MAI (Mobility as an Industry), an operating subsidiary for new mobility services.

Groupe Renault has been involved in new mobility services for the past four years by developing car services with or without drivers (Renault Mobility, Zity in Madrid, Moov'in.Paris, Marcel) and by making acquisitions and equity investments in start-ups specialised in the field (Karhoo, Yuso, Como, iCabbi, Glide).

"After a 'test and learn' phase, the Group is taking a major step forward in its development,"said Renault CEO and MAI president, Thierry Bolloré. "Our ambition is to be one of the world's leading operators of new shared, accessible and sustainable mobility by remaining faithful to our DNA of technological innovation and proximity to the ultimate consumer.

"The mission of Arnaud Molinié, managing director of Renault MAI, will be to develop existing assets, accelerate the conquest of new markets, and help their organisation by forging new partnerships with all the private and public players involved in this new industrial revolution."

Molinié joined the Groupe Renault in January 2019 as World Mobility Director. He is a member of the Group's executive committee.
