Fiat Chrysler Automobiles Italy, Generali Country Italia and FCA Bank are to offer new digital insurance and IoT services to connected-car customers. The announcement is part of a strengthening of their strategic and commercial partnership in Italy and the main European markets.
The partnership will also be extended to the insurance plans for the cars of Leasys’s fleet. Leasys is a FCA Bank Group company that specializes in short, medium and long term rental and peer-to-peer car sharing.
A new initiative has also been launched for the development throughout 2020 of products and services specifically tailored for electric vehicles, such as electric-car insurance and services to facilitate recharging.
Pietro Gorlier, Chief Operating Officer at FCA for the EMEA region, says:“For FCA, the initiative announced today is part of the new global ‘ecosystem’ for connected vehicles announced last April, which will improve the online capabilities of our vehicles worldwide. In addition to providing an ideal technical environment for electric vehicles, the platform will also support FCA’s range of mobility services, including mileage pricing options and insurance policies based on actual vehicle use distributed by FCA Bank through the Group’s dealer network.”
Marco Sesana, Country Manager and CEO of Generali Italia and Global Business Lines, adds: “Thanks to our intensive work with FCA, we are already in a position to propose to customers in Italy and in the main European markets an offer guaranteeing a new experience, tailored to their individual driving styles and lifestyles. With this new approach to mobility, we aim to beat the target of 2.5 million connected customers by 2021.”
Generali Italia is leader in the insurance market with 10 million customers and a network of over 40 thousand distributors.
