Turin, 14 December 2020
After the Mobility Stores of Torino Caselle and Roma Fiumicino airports, electrification lands also in Milan, as FCA Bank and its Leasys subsidiary continue to invest for a sustainable mobility, with the installation in the Leasys Mobility Stores in the Milano-Malpensa and Milano-Linate airports of 10 and 8 new 22-KW fast-charging stations, respectively.
By 2020, in line with the plans to revolutionize mobility in Italy by FCA Bank and Leasys, electrification will reach all the 400 Stores operating in the main cities, airports, ports and train stations in Italy, for a total of 1,200 new EV charging stations installed. Of these, 50 will be located in Lombardy, with over 200 charging stations distributed throughout the region.
After Milano Malpensa and Milano Linate, electrification will reach the Leasys Mobility Stores located in other important provincial capitals in Italy. As the process unfolds throughout Italy, Leasys will undertake also the progressive electrification of its fleet (with 50% of it made up of either electric or hybrid vehicles by 2021), with the addition of the new FCA models, including the electric New 500 and the Jeep Renegade and Compass 4xe plug-in hybrid models.
In connection with the arrival of the new vehicles, Leasys is developing new mobility and rental services, which include the alternate availability of electric, hybrid and traditional-fuel vehicles, thus providing all the benefits of sustainability and freedom of movement, thanks to the possibility to access restricted traffic zones in large cities.
