FCA launches new European charging service for its electrified models
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Digital Charging Solutions GmbH (DCS) have collaborated to develop a public charging service for drivers of Jeep Renegade and Compass 4xe, the New Fiat 500 electric car and all future plug-in hybrid and electric models.
Soon-to-be drivers of FCA’s electrified cars will have access to the digital service “My Easy Charge”, offering them a single provider for what the company is claiming to be the largest charging network in Europe – which also works across borders.
With just one app and one card, the charging solution will provide access to more than 130,000 charging points from multiple operators across 21 European countries.
“If we want to make electric and electrified cars more attractive and accessible, we know that they must be sustainable, from both an environmental and an economical point of view. And, if we want more and more people to choose to drive electrified cars,” says Roberto Di Stefano, head of e-mobility at FCA, “we must ensure a smooth experience for all of them, free of charging anxiety. This is the path FCA has decided to take alongside DCS, working together towards the future of alternative mobility.”
The “My Easy Charge” website features product information, tariffs, a charging network map and account management. There is also an accompanying app for Android or iOS devices.
“We are very happy to now support FCA in realising its electromobility strategy with our expertise in developing and operating an integrated and seamless charging solution. For us this means a further step on the road to a widespread and easy-to-use-electromobility and we are looking forward to our further cooperation”, commented Markus Bartenschlager, managing director of the DCS.
