The premium mobility service provider SIXT and Stellantis, one of the world’s leading car manufacturers, have agreed that SIXT can acquire up to 250,000 Stellantis vehicles for its rental fleet in Europe and North America over the next three years. The agreement has a total value of several billion euros. The first significant deliveries will take place in the first quarter of 2024 and then continue throughout the rest of the year.
SIXT rental customers benefit from Stellantis’ attractive range of award-winning vehicle brands. These include Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep®, Lancia, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, Vauxhall and Maserati. Deliveries to SIXT cover various vehicle classes, from city cars and SUVs to vehicles from the van & truck segment (including 7- and 9-seaters), as well as all drive types (including fully electric vehicles/BEVs). The vehicles are each equipped with the latest software and infotainment technology.
For volumes that exceed the delivery quantities already planned for 2024, order quantities, their composition and delivery dates can be managed flexibly in line with fleet requirements and demand.
Stellantis and SIXT are also exploring potential further cooperation opportunities in various regions of the world, for example with Mobilisights, Stellantis’ Data-as-a-Service (DaaS) service. Mobilisights can be used to provide data packages that can also be used by SIXT for the development and licensing of innovative B2B products, applications and services. As Stellantis is delivered, the number of fully connected vehicles in the SIXT rental fleet will continue to increase significantly. This means that significantly more vehicles will be available for which telemetry data such as fuel level or mileage can be automatically transmitted to SIXT when the vehicle is returned. This will enable SIXT to make processes at its stations even more efficient and allow customers to benefit from shorter processing times and even better vehicle availability.
Both companies have set themselves the goal of making mobility more sustainable. As part of its “Dare Forward 2030” plan, Stellantis has announced that it aims to achieve a sales mix of 100% fully electric passenger cars (BEV) in Europe and 50% fully electric passenger cars and light commercial vehicles in the United States by 2030. With this in mind, the company is securing around 400 gigawatt hours of battery capacity. Stellantis is well on track to achieve net-zero CO2 emissions by 2038 (including Scope 1-3). Any remaining emissions will be offset in the single-digit percentage range.
The purchase of Stellanti’s vehicles with modern drive systems (including BEV) also contributes to SIXT’s goal of significantly reducing the CO2 footprint of its rental fleet (including the goal of increasing the proportion of electrified vehicles in Europe to 70 to 90 percent by 2030). This ambition is a key component of SIXT’s sustainability strategy. This strategy also includes investments in its own charging infrastructure, the further expansion of the SIXT app into an ecosystem for sustainable mobility offers including access to hundreds of thousands of public charging points and the reduction of CO2 emissions at its own stations and locations as quickly and as far as possible.
