According to Mobilize CEO Fedra Ribeiro Duo will be launched as an enabler and not an operator. This means that this electric vehicle from Renault will be offered through third party plans. It is expected that other companies will integrate it into their already existing schemes and pay the automaker the charges of maintenance, servicing and software updates. Renault already has its vehicles in a car-sharing scheme called Zity that operates in four major European cities including Paris.

With Mobilize, Renault does not directly want to get into car sharing but rather the goal is to offer this Duo EV through other establishments so that it can earn profits through offering services. Renault wants to minimise capital investment through this brand. Mobilize brand will also introduce small electric cargo vehicles based on the same underpinnings called the Bento. About Duo, Ribeiro also said, “Duo is a breakthrough for car-share operators. We have to make sure they have an exceptional experience in finding the car, charging the car, even having fun."
