Welcome to issue six of Soluzioni where we put the spotlight on our plans to enter the electric vehicle (EV) market with a host of model launches over the next few years.

Fleet and remarketing director Andy Waite explains why the time is right for FCA to launch the electric Ducato at the end of this year and the importance of designing and engineering all of FCA’s EVs in-house. He also explains how FCA is looking to build on the recent success of Fiat Professional in the public sector.

We also look at the investments being made at the Mirafiori plant currently being being developed for the large-scale production of the electric 500.

Newly appointed national fleet sales manager Matt Niles talks about the restructure of the fleet department and how it will benefit customers. His priority is to get FCA’s ‘hidden gems’ in front of more fleet end users.

Among those gems are the Jeep Renegade and Alfa Romeo Tonale. Read on to find out more about both these exciting models.

We are obsessed about delivering the highest standards of quality, safety, reliability and comfort, which means putting our models through extensive testing. We look at those test conditions, from the glaciers of Arjeplog to the deserts of South Africa, and at our Balocco Proving Ground and Orbassano Safety Centre, which ensure they perform to the most exacting standards in driving pleasure, aerodynamics, emissions and fuel consumption in the most extreme weather and road conditions.

We hope you enjoy this latest edition.
