The project should be active in 17 European countries.
Ionity, a project of Volkswagen, BMW, Mercedes-Benz and Porsche is now quite rapidly spreading around Europe and following the path of Tesla. Those companies are among the first, who decided to build their own charging points, better yet, a grid of charging points all around Europe and other countries. Now, they are about to get a competitor, as a new player is about to hit the scene, even thou it is a such, which is not really quite so developed in the field of electric cars.
News has emerged in Sunday that Fiat (FCA) has decided to make a partnership with two companies, Enel and Engie, which are going to provide private and public charging points for Fiat to offer their customers. The plan is only a fraction of nine billion dollars worth investment, which was presented last year. This plan also included a development of electric Fiat 500 and Jeep Renegade; both of them should arrive shortly, with Jeep already being shown in prototype version (but only in PHEV form).
"We are assembling an eco-system of partners, products and services across multiple markets to meet and exceed the rapidly evolving expectations of our customers for electrified vehicles," FCA CEO Mike Manley said. Project is about to focus on 17 European countries, however the number of public chargers to be put up remains unknown.
