Fiat Chrysler & Engie JV in E-Mobility Sector
and e-Mobility, have entered into a Memorandum of Understanding aimed at creating a Joint Venture, to become a leader in the European e-Mobility landscape, which would rely on FCA’s financial resources and industrial footprint and on ENGIE EPS’ technological know-how and intellectual property portfolio. The two Companies join forces in order to move forward into the new era of a more sustainable mobility, offering innovative solutions and services to make access to electric mobility easy and convenient for everyone.
The newly created company would offer a full suite of products and solutions for electric vehicles customers such as residential, business and public charging infrastructures as well as green energy packages, enabling customers to charge at home and at any public charging point across Europe with a simple subscription at a fixed monthly rate.
A new Italian tech e-Mobility player, with access to a portfolio of hundreds of patents and industrial secrets, a solid team of electrical and system engineers, and a consolidated automotive industrial footprint would thus emerge. The Joint Venture would in fact benefit from the contribution of both parties in terms of intellectual property, human resources and financial assets, and would focus on innovative and disruptive solutions for the European e-Mobility market. The envisaged transaction would represent an important strategic step in the evolution of the two Groups’ product portfolios and would set a major step towards elimination of barriers to the e-Mobility transition in Europe.
The envisaged transaction will be subject to the standard conditions foreseen for this type of operation and all necessary communications and approvals from the competent authorities and institutions.
The two parties expect the signing of the full set of agreements1 by the end of the year, and the incorporation of the Joint Venture in the first quarter of 2021.
