FCA Mixes With Tesla To Reduce Average Fleet Emissions – A Deal Worth Hundreds Of Millions

As the European Commission prepares to impose a CO2 emissions fleet average requirement of 95g per kilometer, brands like FCA need to act quickly. Tesla generously offered to help out.

The situation is that next year, the European Commission will enforce the requirement that says that on average, vehicles sold by a carmaker must more than 95g of CO2 per kilometre. Should a manufacturer fail to meet this standard, hefty fines will be levied against them. That’s where FCA and Tesla will work together.

Although FCA has huge electrification plans, with a number of Jeeps to gain plug-in technology, they’ve lagged behind most other companies and as such, could be in serious trouble.

As Tesla is all about a zero-emissions fleet, it actually offered its “services” to the industry to help out a “struggling” OEM. You see, the EU permits pooling fleets between automakers in order to avoid the fines – how does this help the big picture?

Anyhow, the terms of the deal between Tesla and FCA have not been disclosed however almost every industry media website reports that hundreds of millions have been paid out by FCA to Tesla.

We suppose this makes both brands winners. FCA’s avoids fines (or did they just pay them?) and Tesla gets to offset a rough first quarter of 2019.
