Stellantis has launched a dedicated EV charging business unit to support fleets and drivers with charging and energy management.
The new Stellantis Charging & Energy Business Unit supports the group’s Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan and includes its Free2move Charge ‘360-degree ecosystem’ which is built around three separate pillars.
Free2move Charge Home products provide support with installation, financing and warranty of home charging and other energy hardware and services.
Options available include AC charging cables and wallboxes to Vehicle-2-Home, Vehicle-2-Grid, and complete energy management systems. Future features will include touch-free wireless solutions and inductive robot charging.
Free2move Charge Business provides a one-stop-shop platform with charging and energy services: early-on support, estimation of initial and future running costs, right-sizing of charging infrastructure, installation, maintenance and public charging access.
Alongside access, payment and 24-7 support, Free2move Charge Go will also roll out features such as Plug and Charge, reservations, loyalty programmes, subscriptions, prepaid packages, single invoice/billing and deliver a charge to a requested location when needed.
Stellantis brands include Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, Vauxhall, Free2move and Leasys.
Ricardo Stamatti, senior vice president, Stellantis Charging & Energy Business Unit, said, “As the pace of mainstream EV adoption accelerates, our customers need us to be more than just a mobility provider.
“We are taking the lead in establishing a dedicated business unit that will support our bold electrification strategy and act as a natural extension of our iconic brands. Free2move Charge is the first product rolling out, exemplifying our purpose of delivering performance, value, sustainability and electrified mobility freedom for all.”
