Stellantis signs agreements with European financing partners

Stellantis puts its European financial services arms on a firmer footing.

By David Leggett

Stellantis has announced the signing of binding agreements with BNP Paribas Personal Finance, Crédit Agricole Consumer Finance and Santander Consumer Finance aimed at better organising its current financial services platform in Europe.

“I am very pleased to confirm the signing of these agreements with our historical European banking partners,” said Carlos Tavares, Stellantis CEO. “Our strategy is to better leverage our financial services arms, both in Europe and North America, with the aim to double our net banking income by 2030. The new platform is setting the scene to achieve this target and boost value creation across our financial services business.”

These agreements support the financial services commitment which is part of Stellantis Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, and aims at:

  • creating a multi-brand operational leasing company in which Stellantis and CACF each hold a 50% interest, resulting from the combination of the Leasys and Free2move Lease businesses, in order to become a European leader, with a fleet target of around 1 million vehicles in 2026, and
  • reorganising the financing activities through joint ventures set up with BNPP PF or SCF in each country to manage financing activities for all Stellantis brands.

The transactions should be completed during the first half of 2023 once the required authorisation has been obtained from the relevant anti-trust authorities and market regulators.
