24 August 2023
Stellantis and its network of over 2,600 U.S. dealerships are actively embracing the electric future. Collaborating with its dealers, the company is dedicated to transitioning towards electric vehicle (EV) sales and services. The addition of AGI's electrical engineering, project management, fabrication, and maintenance expertise will offer a substantial resource to Stellantis dealers, expediting their readiness for EVs. AGI joins the ranks of Stellantis' U.S. partners in EV infrastructure and training, including Future Energy and Vehya.
U.S. Head of Sales, Jeff Kommor, highlighted Stellantis' commitment to its dealership network's EV readiness, stating, "Stellantis is fully committed to an electrification strategy that caters to the requirements of our dealership network. We are collaborating closely with our national dealer council to formulate and support their long-term plans during this transformative shift. From operational aspects and inventory management to service centers and employee engagement, our objective is to directly assist our dealers in preparing for success and overcoming challenges as the automotive industry progresses towards electrification."
Recognizing the significance of dealer EV readiness and customer experience, Dave Clower, Senior Vice President and General Manager of AGI's Electrical Lighting and Maintenance Division, emphasized the critical role of electric vehicle supply equipment (EVSE) and its proper installation, uptime, and maintenance in delivering a seamless EV experience.
Stellantis' ambitious strategic plan, Dare Forward 2030, underpins the company's aspiration to create exceptional value for stakeholders. As part of its commitment to combat climate change, Stellantis aims to achieve carbon net zero emissions by 2038 and plans to introduce over 25 battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by 2030.
Stellantis is part of a joint venture alongside BMW Group, General Motors, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, and Mercedes-Benz Group, which aims to expedite the adoption of electric vehicles in North America by enhancing the convenience, accessibility, and reliability of EV charging.
