Stellantis, Siemens To Develop Charging Infrastructure For EVs
Stellantis Middle East, signed a MoU with Siemens to jointly develop smart electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure technologies for the Middle East.
This includes creating packaged solutions for customers, and electrification of Last Mile delivery services in Middle East market.
The MoU was signed during a ceremony held at WETEX 2022 at Dubai World Trade Center and marks the official launch of the partnership between the two entities through which technologies for electric delivery vehicles will be deployed.
Stellantis in Middle East and Africa is committed to its electrification goals in the region.
The company expanded its future vision earlier this month by unveiling Dare Forward 2030, its bold strategic plan for the coming decade aiming to drive Stellantis to be leaders of the energy transition and transform all facets of mobility in the region.
By delivering innovative, clean, safe, and affordable mobility solutions to its customers, employees, and the planet, Stellantis aims to become the industry champion in climate change and aims to achieve net carbon Zero by 2038 with 50% carbon emission reduction.
Siemens has developed technology that will accelerate the adoption of EVs by speeding up charging times and creating smarter, more efficient power grids.
In June 2022, the United Arab Emirates’ Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure said it would deploy ten Siemens Sicharge D 160 kW ultra-fast chargers on the highways in Ras Al Khaimah, Ajman, Umm Al Quwain, and Fujairah.
All are cloud-connected devices that allow operators to monitor and manage the chargers remotely.
Markus Leithe, Group Managing Director at Stellantis Middle East, commented: “With our Dare Forward strategic plans, we are proud to partner with Siemens as we continue our path to full electrification execution and offer advanced technology to our customers.”
