Enel X, a subsidiary of Enel Group, will be providing Groupe PSA Italia its technical expertise to take advantage of the next generation of electric cars from Citreon, Peugeot, Opel, and DS Automobiles within the Italian marketplace.
Managing Director of Groupe PSA Italia, Gaetano Thorel, discussed the deal saying, “Thanks to our partnership with Enel X, we can offer Italian clients of Groupe PSA a comprehensive, transparent “turnkey” service with charging plans that make it even easier to embrace zero emission mobility. Once again, Groupe PSA is confirmed as leader in all forms of electric, sustainable and accessible mobility.”
Alessio Torelli, Manager of Enel X Italia states: “Electric mobility is entering a phase of rapid growth and already represents the only alternative for eco-friendly travel on four or two wheels. Thanks to our partnership with PSA, we offer all those who opt for an electric vehicle the best customised charging solutions in and outside the home.”
Enel X has developed three different custom charging solutions for electric vehicles: the Home package, the Street package, and the Full Recharge package. The Home package will install a privately owned charging station in an owner's garage for at-home charging needs. The Street package is designed for outside use in commercial or public settings and can be apart of Enel X's charging station network. And the Full Recharge package includes both services for private at-home and public charging requirements.
The partnership between the two aims to install around 800 charging locations in Groupe PSA Italia's dealer network and add Groupe PSA's Free2Move service into Enel X's e-mobility network. The latter will allow consumers to use the Free2Move app to access public Enel X charging stations.
The amount of available charging stations directly effects Groupe PSA's ability to promote and sell its electric vehicle models from across all its brands. Enel X currently boasts around 9,300 public charging points throughout Italy and expects to add more as it expands the current infrastructure.
Groupe PSA Italia and Enel X's partnership will help to make electric mobility much easier for consumers by providing deeper access to entirely electric cars.
