Turin, 17 September 2020
The sustainable mobility revolution sparked in Italy by FCA Bank and its Leasys subsidiary has achieved another important milestone with the installation of the first 10 fast EV charging stations at Leonardo da Vinci International Airport, Rome Fiumicino.
The process undertaken is designed to disseminate a culture of sustainable mobility, thanks to an extensive infrastructure throughout Italy and through new rental and mobility offerings that include the alternate availability of electric, hybrid and traditional fuel vehicles.
FCA Bank and Leasys kicked off the project with the opening in Turin’s Caselle airport the first totally electrified Leasys Mobility Store, out of the over 400 available in the main cities, airports and train stations in Italy. Plans call for the electrification of all the Leasys Mobility Stores in Italy by the end of 2020, for a total of 1,200 new EV charging stations installed with Enel X’s support, Leasys’s partner in this initiative.
The upgrade of the Leasys Mobility Stores is part of a broader plan to electrify also Leasys’s fleet, thanks to the new range of FCA vehicles, including the electric Nuova 500 as well as the plug-in hybrid Jeep Renegade and Compass 4xe. The objective is to have 60% of the fleet made up of either electric or hybrid vehicles by 2021, with a significant reduction of CO2 emissions.
With the launch of these new vehicles, Leasys developed new rental and mobility solutions, which include the alternative availability of electric, hybrid and traditional fuel vehicles, providing benefits in terms of sustainability and freedom of movement, with access to restricted traffic zones in large cities.
One such solution is Leasys CarCloud, the first car subscription in Italy, which introduced the new Renegade & Compass Plug-in Hybrid program, the new and exclusive Jeep® product. With Leasys CarCloud Renegade & Compass Plug-in Hybrid, available for a fixed monthly fee of €479, subscribers will be able to drive, depending on their need, either a Jeep® Renegade 4xe Plug-in Hybrid o a Jeep® Compass 4xe Plug-in Hybrid, all available with the same subscription.
Both cars will be equipped with charging cables for connection to a domestic socket. Moreover, thanks to the e-parking service available on the CarCloud app and on the mobilitystore.leasys.com website, customers will be able to find the nearest Mobility Store with a charging station, so that they might go there and recharge their vehicle at no cost.
