Enel X, the Enel Group’s business line dedicated to advanced energy services and products, and multinational automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) signed a partnership agreement to develop new e-mobility solutions to boost the uptake of electric vehicles (EVs) and support FCA’s soon-to-be-launched electrified vehicle models.

Under the agreement, Enel X will equip FCA facilities and dealerships in Italy, Spain and Portugal with its charging infrastructure and will offer FCA’s EV customers with tailored charging solutions and services. In addition, the two parties have agreed to establish an innovation committee to develop and test new e-mobility solutions and services.

“Partnerships like this one, bringing together the energy utility sector and the car manufacturing industry, are of paramount importance to boost electric mobility which is a key driver in the energy transition,” said Francesco Venturini, Head of Enel X. “This partnership perfectly fits within Enel X’s strategy which includes plans for the deployment of public charging networks in Italy, Spain and Romania and several partnerships with public administrations and private players to accelerate the e-mobility revolution.”

A full range of Enel X smart charging solutions, including stations and charging management software, will be provided to FCA’s plants, offices and R&D centers. In particular, FCA plans to install approximately 700 Enel X charging stations over the next two years at its premises in Italy.

Enel X charging solutions will also be installed at FCA’s dealerships in Italy, Spain and Portugal, including customer parking, test-drive and service areas. In addition, Enel X and FCA will provide dedicated e-mobility training programmes to the sales force and other personnel at FCA’s dealerships.

Starting from 2020, FCA’s EV customers in Italy, Spain and Portugal will be given the option of installing an Enel X charging point (“JuiceBox”) tailored to their specific requirements, including a range of charging services, and alternatively solutions for charging on the public network. Enel X and FCA will also work together to provide customers with a user-friendly app solution for charging management.
