Automaker Stellantis and its 2,600-plus dealers in the U.S. are focused on the dealership transition to EV sales and service, offering consulting and on-site evaluation of EV integration needs within every area of the dealership business through its partnership with Future Energy.
To date, nearly 70% of dealers are in the process of assessing their individual readiness.
Future Energy is offering Stellantis dealerships EV integration services, including guidance through the financial assistance application process to obtain project funding support, coordination with the installation and activation of EV charging stations, and technology solutions and infrastructure to measure and manage the energy use across their entire business. It is also providing staff training on business operational changes and sales strategies, as well as ongoing customer support.
In its commitment to fighting against climate change, Stellantis unveiled Dare Forward 2030, its strategic plan for the coming decade, with the goal of reaching carbon net zero emissions by 2038.
Stellantis is aiming for 100% of sales in Europe and 50% of sales in the U.S. to be battery-electric vehicles (BEVs) by the end of this decade. It plans to have more than 75 BEVs globally and reach global annual BEV sales of 5 million vehicles by 2030. The company also plans to offer more than 25 BEVs by 2030 in the U.S.
