FCA Bank Austria and SMATRICS are shifting up in the field of electromobility in Austria. For this purpose, they have signed a cooperation agreement that offers customers various advantages in connection with the financing of electric vehicles. It is the stated goal of both companies to make the entry into electric mobility as easy and convenient as possible.
The first vehicle to benefit from this agreement will be the new Jaguar I-PACE. The "World Car of the Year 2019" is the first all-electric Jaguar. The first 40 I-PACE customers who finance their vehicle through FCA Bank, Jaguar Land Rover financial partner, will also have the possibility to order a card that can be used to charge the vehicle at exclusive special rates at all public SMATRICS charging stations throughout Austria.
The first 40 I-PACE customers will have the possibility to charge their car (for up to 15,000 km per year) for € 49 per month. This fixed price will be guaranteed for 36 months. The offer is completed by advantageous prices when purchasing a mobile or permanently installed charging station that will enable the owner to charge the vehicle at home or at work.
Roberto Sportiello, Managing Director of FCA Bank Austria: "Our goal is to offer our customers new practical mobility solutions and to provide effective support to the brands we work with on their way to electrification. With the forthcoming expansion of the electric model range, we are now setting the course for the future."
Dr. Michael-Viktor Fischer, Managing Director of SMATRICS, declared: "We are united with FCA Bank in the endeavor to make electric mobility available throughout Austria as quickly and efficiently as possible. The partnership makes it possible to combine the best of both worlds – attractive financing solutions for electric cars and the uniquely convenient SMATRICS charging solutions across the whole of Austria."
