In order to meet the incoming EU emissions regulations, the U.S. manufacturer Fiat Chrysler is reportedly paying hundreds of millions of euros to Tesla, so that they can technically be calculated as “their” BEVs.
This will be to meet the average CO2 emissions requirement of 95g per km, that will hit car makers fleets next year. Adding a few battery electric vehicles to the fleet, at least in a mathematical sense, will help a great deal to curb emissions. Furthermore, Tesla actually went so far as to offer the deals to “automakers who could use its important zero-emission fleet in Europe”, indicating that Tesla is getting quite savvy regarding emissions legislation.
