The plan announced by Stellantis at EV Day continues with Atlante
Milan, 15 November 2021 – As announced today by Stellantis, the Atlante project, launched in July at Stellantis EV Day and then presented at NHOA’s Masterplan Day, is moving forward. Recently, the first fast charging station was inaugurated in Piedmont (Italy) and more than 700 project sites have been identified, 10% of which (mainly in Italy) are already under development and will become operational within the next six months.
Atlante is the result of the collaboration between Stellantis, NHOA Group and Free2Move eSolutions and foresees the installation in Italy, France, Spain and Portugal of 5,000 fastchargers by 2025, with a target of over 35,000 by 2030. It will be an open network with preferential and distinctive conditions of service for Stellantis group customers.
The overall scheme has been designed to bridge the charging infrastructure gap, in particular the lack of fastcharging stations according to the ACEA (European Automobile Manufacturers’ Association). It is also a clear response to the Fit for 55 plan announced by the European Commission in mid-July – aimed at achieving 100% sales of zero-emission cars by 2035 -, and in line with NHOA’s mission to enable the global transition towards clean energy and sustainable mobility.
“The COP26 just ended has once again expressed the urgency to focus all global efforts towards the spreading of renewable energy and electric mobility. Thanks to the expertise of NHOA, one of the top five players worldwide in the energy storage sector, Atlante network is a tangible answer to these needs; it will offer sustainable charging points in micro-grid set up to allow the penetration of more and more renewable sources in the European electric system for the benefit of our planet” said Carlalberto Guglielminotti, CEO of NHOA Group.
