Renault Zoe and Renault Twizy with COMOS decals


COMOS cars have been spotted again, this time uploaded by Malaysian EV infrastructure provider EMAL Mobiliti to their Facebook page. This time we have a closer look at the COMOS logo which appears to have the tagline “Sharing & Saving Made Easy!”

This leads us to believe COMOS may be some kind of EV car sharing service. We’re on the way to a press conference announcing the initiative and will be able to get back to you with more details later this evening.

The blue car is a Renault Zoe, essentially an electric B-segment Renault hatchback. Think of it as an EV version of the Clio if you like. Unlike the C-segment Fluence EV which shares a name and general looks with the regular Fluence, Renault decided to give its electric Clio its own look and ‘branding’.

The other rather interesting vehicle here is the Renault Twizy, which is a kind of a cross between a motorcycle and a car, also powered solely by an electric motor. We wonder whether it’s classified as a bike or a car in Malaysia – that would determine what kind of licence you would need to drive it. It’s most likely a car, since despite the ‘open’ architecture, it has a regular car’s steering wheel.

    I saw a Nissan Leaf once in Glenmarie. At least it gives us a glimpse of hope that in 20 years time, our roads will be filled with electric cars.

    Having said that, even Marty McFly from ‘Back to the Future movie’ won’t realize his dream if he jumps from fantasy into the reality of 2014 (he travels to 26th Jan 2014 from 1985 seeing electric cars roaming the street)

    By the 4 wheels alone, it is definitely classified as a car.

    Speaking of the Nissan Leaf, I saw one too around Persiaran Tengku Ampuan Rahimah just before the hospital in Klang. A grey colored one, driven by a man with glasses.

    I wonder what EV car sharing service is about.

      What made you think that electric car can’t be driven through flood? Battery and electric motor can be sealed but air intake and exhaust can’t.
