PSA is going to cooperate with BMW subsidiary Digital Charging Solutions (DCS) to provide Peugeot and Citroën customers access to currently 6,360 charging stations throughout France, among them 460 fast-charging terminals.
Digital Charging Solutions operates BMW’s ChargeNow programme and will add now ChargeMyPeugeot and ChargeMyCitroën services to the app. So users will be able to locate and access related charging stations in France. According to PSA, by the end of the year, the network is expected to have 9,000 charging points available in France.
“Looking at the current market feedback we are happy to see that the business model and service of DCS is very interesting for EV manufacturer and chargepoint operators”, states Markus Bartenschlager, CEO of Digital Charging Solutions. “We are proud to have PSA as one of our first major OEM customer looking forward to support their EV sales in many markets.” PSA sees the cooperation as another step towards energy transition: “With ChargeMyPeugeot and ChargeMyCitroën, we are developing a service that makes life easier for our customers”, says Jérémie Maestracci, Director of PSA’s Electric Vehicles Business Unit. “This comprehensive service allows people to use their electric vehicle more simply by quickly pinpointing available terminals.”
