    • In close collaboration, Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Digital Charging Solutions GmbH (DCS) have developed a seamless and integrated public charging service for drivers of Jeep Renegade and Compass 4xe and, the New Fiat 500 BEV and all future plug-in Hybrid and electric models
    • This agreement demonstrates their commitment to creating and implementing innovative ideas to improve customers’ everyday lives – and to making electromobility as easily accessible and usable as possible for customers


    Soon-to-be drivers of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles’ electric and electrified cars now have one more friend to count on. Based on the partnership signed between FCA and Digital Charging Solutions GmbH, Jeep or Fiat EV-customers will have access to the digital service “My easy Charge”, offering them a single provider for the largest charging network in the world.
    With just one app and one single card the charging solution will provide access to more than 130,000 charge points in 21 European countries, so nobody is left at a loss.
    By signing up to the service, users will benefit from interacting with all the main operators in one go, from the same platform. Element of “My easy Charge” will be a website which features product information, tariffs, a charging network map and account management. Furthermore, the solution comprises an app for iOS and Android including intelligent route planning for finding charge stations conveniently at the destination or along a route, as well as the option of activating charge stations directly via the app.
    As DCS is constantly expanding its charging network, the number of charge points available to “My easy Charge” customers is permanently increasing, to open up an even wider, more convenient and more accessible network to them.
    “We are very happy – comments Markus Bartenschlager, Managing Director of the DCS, on the collaboration – to now support FCA in realizing their electromobility strategy with our expertise in developing and operating an integrated and seamless charging solution. For us this means a further step on the road to a widespread and easy-to-use-electromobility and we are looking forward to our further cooperation”.
    This philosophy is shared by Fiat Chrysler Automobiles, whose e-Mobility division is committed to promoting the development of alternative mobility. To do so, FCA has developed an ecosystem modeled on its customers’ requirements, in order to facilitate access to electrified cars and make it simpler to use them every day.
    “The partnership with DCS – says Roberto Di Stefano, Head of e-Mobility FCA Region EMEA – adds to the agreements FCA has already made with many companies that lead their respective sectors. If we want to make electric and electrified cars more attractive and accessible, we know that they must be sustainable, from both an environmental and an economical point of view. And if we want more and more people to choose to drive electrified cars we must ensure a smooth experience for all of them, free of charging anxiety. This is the path FCA has decided to take alongside DCS, working together towards the future of alternative mobility. Because with ‘My easy Charge’, we offer a unique, comfortable and convenient experience to people who choose one of our cars”.

    Nice, though ⅔ of those words weren't actually needed.

    If you think that's bad, you should try reading just about ANY piece of legislation that gets passed by the US Congress.:D

    I know that we have the Pacifica PHEV but I would like if someone knows when we will have others PHEV models in North America ? TheJeep Compass and Renagate PHEV are ready for Europe - we should have these one without delay.

    Hey...come on...how else would Congress people express their self-importance without such copious cases of verbal diarrhea? :D

    As to the service, anything that makes it easier to charge your vehicle can make EV’s more appealing to the masses is a good idea. I’m interested very much in EV’s, but my biggest concern is being able to charge whenever I need to, especially because I drive so many miles. Services like this would make me feel much more comfortable about it...and I have AAA so I know they can either tow me home, or to the nearest charging station. They used to have mobile charging trucks, but they discontinued them...they weren’t seeing much use...though they were introduced back in 2011. I read that they are looking into more compact mobile charging solutions.

    I think to convince more people to buy EV’s, they have to have that comfort level in knowing that they can get a charge whenever they need it, like they have with gasoline. This service is definitely a good idea.

    I joke with a friend that we should start a home-charging service for EVs.. all we'd need is a truck, and a dirty great diesel generator... ;)

    The problem with the recharging of the battery (availability and the time needed) plus the effective range (considering the climate condition) is for me enough to not but an all electric vehicle. But for my situation with a typical urban uilization a PHEV is the better vehicle that I can have - most of the time for my daily travel that could be done with electricity only and when I would like to do a longer travel that will be on hybrid mode. So when Jeep will brig the PHEV Compass in North America ? And any plan for a Cherookee PHEV ?

    Which is relevant how?

    It's kinda sad - Jimmy Carter pushed for, and got, a law demanding that laws be written in clear English that non-lawyers could read. What happened?
