SIXT and Stellantis reach agreement for the purchase of up to 250,000 vehicles
Mobility service provider SIXT and Stellantis, one of the world’s leading automakers, announce they have come to a multi-billion-euro agreement under which SIXT could buy up to 250,000 vehicles for its rental fleet in its corporate countries across Europe and North America over the next three years. First significant delivery volumes will take place as early as the first quarter of 2024 and will continue throughout the year.
SIXT rental customers will benefit from a choice of vehicles of Stellantis brands including Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS Automobiles, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Opel, Peugeot, Ram, Vauxhall and Maserati. The deliveries to SIXT will include a variety of classes from city cars to SUVs to vans and trucks (including 7- and 9-seaters) as well as a full range of propulsion types (including battery electric vehicles) featuring the latest software and infotainment tech features.
Additionally, Stellantis and SIXT will also explore potential cooperation opportunities in various regions around the world including Mobilisights, Stellantis’ data as a service (DaaS) business, to provide and develop data packages for developing and licensing innovative business-to-business products, applications, and services which will be made available to SIXT.
Carlos Tavares, CEO of Stellantis: “With today’s amazing announcement with SIXT, we deliver on our commitments to offer the customer clean, safe and affordable mobility seen now in breakthrough vehicles and technology. Within our iconic brands, we offer a vehicle that fits practically every need, price point, and lifestyle. This partnership with SIXT enables current and potential Stellantis brand customers to immerse themselves in our newest offerings with the most advanced propulsion, vehicle connectivity and thoughtful comfort. It’s the ultimate test drive and a critical checkpoint for us in the upcoming years as Stellantis transforms into a sustainable mobility tech company.”
Konstantin Sixt, Co-CEO of SIXT: “We are very much looking forward to welcoming a large number of exciting vehicles of iconic Stellantis brands to our fleet. This agreement with a progressive, full-range partner underscores our promise to provide our customers with the best choice for all their mobility needs. It enables us to accelerate our growth strategy ‘EXPECT BETTER’, after already achieving global revenue growth of almost 20 percent in the first nine months of 2023. This ambition applies to European countries, but of course also to the U.S., the largest rental market in the world and the most important growth market for our company.”
