Stellantis and its U.S. dealership network are driving toward an electrified future. Working with its 2,600-plus dealers, the company is focused on the dealership transition to electric-vehicle sales and service, offering consulting and on-site evaluation of EV integration needs within every area of the dealership business.

“As we accelerate the drive toward electrification, Stellantis is in full-execution mode with an electrification strategy designed specifically to address the needs of our dealership network,” said Phil Langley, head of network development, FCA-North America. “We are working lockstep with our dealer council to develop and support their long-term plans during this industry-changing transition. From business operations and inventory management to service centers and employee culture, our goal is to work directly with our dealers to best prepare for, be successful in and address any challenges they may face as the automotive industry continues to move toward electrification.”

To date, nearly 70% of dealers are in the process of assessing their individual readiness.
