Stellantis Invests in California’s EV Charging Infrastructure

Stellantis has agreed to invest $4 million in California to install electric vehicle chargers and an additional $6 million in more than a dozen other states that follow California’s emission standards in the USA. This initiative is part of a deal with the California Air Resources Board to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from its cars and expand the charging infrastructure.

Stellantis will save over 10 million metric tons of emissions through 2026 and comply with California’s stringent emissions standards until 2030. The company will also invest in public EV chargers in California and other states with similar emission regulations.

In California, over 100,000 public or shared private electric vehicle chargers have been installed, complementing the 500,000 at-home chargers. This milestone follows a $1.9 billion investment plan to enhance the state’s charging network, with at least 50% of the funding dedicated to benefiting communities disproportionately impacted by pollution.

The state aims to reach 250,000 public chargers in the next few years, supporting the growing demand for zero-emission vehicles and promoting sustainable transportation options.

What other states are included in the deal between Stellantis and the California Air Resources Board?

The deal between Stellantis and the California Air Resources Board includes more than a dozen other states that have adopted California’s greenhouse gas emissions standards.
