A joint venture between the two groups will be formed in the coming months.
“Making electric mobility easier and more convenient for everyone” is the goal that Stellantis and Engie have set for themselves, at the start of a new partnership focused on the infrastructure necessary for electric transport.
Stellantis, the group resulting from the merger of PSA and FCA, and Engie, formerly GDF-Suez, will create a joint venture whose aim will be to offer solutions for electric mobility, but also to install a new network of terminals . The agreement also specifies the establishment of subscriptions for recharging, and the creation of “residential, commercial and public recharging infrastructures”: terminals, therefore.
Preferential rates when loading?
To do this, Engie will rely on its Italian subsidiary Engie Eps, a specialist in energy storage and electric mobility technologies. The completion of the joint venture should take place in the coming months.
This is good news for regular users of electric cars, who have to rely on a charging network that is sometimes scarce, or in poor condition. We can also imagine preferential charging rates for vehicles of Stellantis brands, as is the case for example on the Ionity network with manufacturers such as Porsche, Audi, BMW or Mercedes. A Tesla-style system, with specific superchargers, is however very unlikely.
