Leasys acquires Blue Torino
Turin, 17 December 2020
Leasys, a subsidiary of FCA Bank and leader in 360-degree mobility services in Italy, announces the acquisition of the car sharing business and the EV charging stations in Turin of BlueTorino, a company of the Bolloré Group. The company achieved another milestone in its plans to revolutionize sustainable mobility, which started with the electrification of its 500 Leasys Mobility Stores in Italy and France and continued with the launch of the LeasysGO! electric car sharing service in Turin.
The acquisition of the BlueTorino business and EV charging infrastructure is part of a broader strategy that Leasys and FCA Bank have been pursuing in recent years, to further expand their role in the sustainable mobility sector. With the purchase of BlueTorino network, Leasys will be able to rely on a substantial number of EV charging stations well distributed in the city of Turin, with dedicated parking spots on public streets.
There are 430 EV charging stations in Turin, with as many dedicated parking spots, which will increase to 560 in 2021, adding to the existing infrastructure of 100 poles already managed by Leasys in the city. BlueTorino’s charging stations will be gradually replaced with fast chargers, to enhance the support provided to the electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles, including those in the LeasysGO! car sharing service.
The acquisition of BlueTorino will enable Leasys to play an even more important role as an international integrated mobility player and will put Turin at center stage as Italy’s capital of sustainable mobility.
