Under this partnership, Pacifica will become Mobilize Financial Services’ car insurance partner at the end of 2023 for policies taken out by customers who acquire a new or used car.
The new Mobilize Financial Services motor insurance subsidiary - Mobilize Insurance - will be able to rely on an innovative, pan-European platform that is fully-integrated into the Renault Group brand ecosystem, to develop a complete range of car insurance products, including services based on how vehicles are used. Mobilize Insurance will be looking to triple its global motor insurance sales by 2030 to 3.6 million policies (from 1.2 million today).
“In response to major changes in the automotive industry, we are constantly innovating to meet new consumer expectations, which now hinge more on vehicle use than on vehicle ownership. Our partnership with Pacifica means that we can continue to innovate and provide our customers with a complete range of solutions to fully meet their needs, from traditional insurance policies to usage-based solutions, including a ‘pay as you drive’ service, said João Leandro, CEO of Mobilize Financial Services.
This partnership will also go some way to helping Crédit Agricole Assurances accomplish the goals set out in its 2025 corporate project, both in terms of growth (upwards of 2.5 million additional P&C policies in France) and when it comes to supporting new forms of mobility.
“Insurer-automaker partnerships are a key aspect of the opportunities being created by emerging mobility trends, with an ever-increasing share of electric vehicles on our roads, acquisition and financing methods that are placing a greater focus on leasing, and the development of smart cars and data-related uses. This partnership will support us in our growth and enable us to continue to innovate alongside a key market player,” said Philippe Dumont, CEO of Crédit Agricole Assurances.
