We are excited and honored to be chosen as a preferred installation partner to Stellantis' dealer network."

To date, more than 73% of U.S. dealers are in the process of assessing their individual readiness for EV sales and service through Stellantis' partnership with Vehya and Future Energy - another recommended partner for EV charger sales, installation and maintenance for Stellantis' U.S. auto dealers announced last November as part of its Dare Forward 2030 plan which aims to have 50% of sales in the United States be battery-electric vehicles by the end of this decade with more than 25 battery-electric vehicles available in the U.S by 2030.

Vehya is also one of 15 companies that will graduate from the National Black Supplier Development Program - a program built to bring awareness to the capabilities of Stellantis' diverse supply base - providing key knowledge through networking activities, training and development and growth plan assessments.

The partnership between Stellantis and Vehya is an important step towards preparing its 2,600 plus dealerships for increased electric vehicle sales and service in order to meet consumer needs now and into the future as part of its Dare Forward 2030 plan
