Allego Enters into Strategic Partnership with Nissan
Allego to Strengthen and Expand Nissan and Europe’s Electric Vehicle Charging Networks
PARIS & ARNHEM, the Netherlands & NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Allego Holding B.V. (“Allego” or “the “Company”), a leading pan-European electric vehicle charging network that recently announced a business combination with Spartan Acquisition Corp. III (“Spartan”) (NYSE: SPAQ), today announced a strategic partnership with Nissan, a leading global vehicle manufacturer responsible for developing, manufacturing, distributing, and selling motor vehicles, including electric vehicles (“EVs”), as well as their related parts and components under the NISSAN trade mark worldwide.
Allego will enter into a long-term partnership with Nissan in 16 countries and across more than 600 locations to install, operate, and maintain DC fast charging solutions of 50kW and 24kW. Charging locations span across the European continent, including Belgium, The Netherlands, Luxembourg, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Austria, Estonia, Lithuania, and Latvia.
“We are thrilled to partner with Nissan to enhance Europe’s existing network of electric charging ports,” commented Mathieu Bonnet, CEO of Allego. “Allego’s partnership with a pioneering auto manufacturer in electric mobility like Nissan is a testament to our leadership position in the European EV charging market and demonstrates that electrification is no longer an abstract concept, but a long-term solution to one the most pressing issues our world faces: climate change.”
“Since launching the world’s first mass-market electric vehicle in 2010, the LEAF, Nissan has continuously strived to make the benefits of electric mobility accessible to drivers every day,” said Jean-Philippe Roux, Deputy Vice President, Network Development & Customer Quality, Nissan AMIEO. The project will fall under the Nissan brand “Electrify the World,” part of Nissan’s ongoing efforts to invest in the development of a quick charging network in Europe. This investment will focus primarily on expanding and developing Nissan’s existing charging network situated at company premises and those of its dealers, repairers and partners.
The deal provides for scope of supply CPO services for Allego, DC charging hardware at Nissan dealer charging networks, and five-year service and maintenance contracts for each charger.
“As we push forwards into a new chapter for Nissan’s all-electric vehicle line-up with the innovative Ariya coupe crossover and versatile, fully electric Townstar light commercial vehicle, our comprehensive charging infrastructure expansion plan in partnership with Allego is further evidence of our continued commitment to electric mobility,” continued Jean-Philippe Roux.
