FCA signs up NewMotion for complete EV charging solution for fleets
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles is to support European fleets switching to EVs with a new complete charging solution from NewMotion.
The partnership will be rolled out across 12 countries, starting with the UK, France and Germany followed by the Netherlands, BeLux, Switzerland, Austria and the Nordics countries over the next three years.
It includes solutions for workplace, home and on-the-go charging. Fleet customers will be able to take care of installation of EV charge points at workplaces and homes, as well as deploying the NewMotion charge card with access to more than 175,000 public charge points in Europe.
All charge points in the company’s network will be connected online, ensuring efficient management but also enabling streamlined payment functionalities and data insights. This means employees who drive a company car but charge at home will be automatically reimbursed for these costs.
Fleet managers of large businesses will also gain access to Business Hub to monitor, analyse and control all aspects of their NewMotion charging infrastructure from one central platform.
“The partnership with NewMotion,” explained Roberto Di Stefano, head of e-Mobility region EMEA at FCA, “is one of the many services that Fiat Chrysler Automobiles offers to its clients, to simplify the life of those who decide to buy an electric or electrified vehicle. These are simple, innovative solutions that can transform any issues business clients may encounter with new types of e-mobility into opportunities.”
Melanie Lane, CEO of NewMotion, continued: “Our ecosystem of smart charging solutions that spans a large number of European countries means business customers who operate internationally or have multiple locations can be sure they can access the same solutions everywhere. We’re looking forward to supporting FCA in their effort to create a seamless EV charging experience for their corporate customers.”
