Stellantis has introduced Pro One – an enhanced version of its Commercial Vehicles Business that will encompass professional offerings of its six vehicle brands: Citroën, FIAT, Opel, Peugeot, Ram and Vauxhall.
Stellantis Pro One will operate as an umbrella business covering vans, pickup trucks and micro-mobility options; current and next-generation electrified propulsions; a connected converter/upfitter ecosystem; fully connected vehicle technologies; and a business partnership mindset to maximize business efficiency, minimize costs and grow profitability. This offering will ultimately help the corporation achieve key targets in its Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan – including the doubling of its commercial vehicle net revenues by 2030 against 2021, a 40% EV sales mix, and generating €5 billion in service revenues. Stellantis plans to launch the brand on Monday October 23 featuring second-generation zero-emission powertrains, a hydrogen solution, full connectivity, and top-level ADAS.
As part of the Stellantis Pro One launch, a fully renewed van lineup for each brand will be revealed on Monday, October 23 featuring second-generation zero-emission powertrains, a unique hydrogen solution, full connectivity, and top-level autonomous driving assistance systems. Stellantis’ product line-up in North America will receive a similar level of support with its own set of upcoming electric van and pickup solutions, including the Ram ProMaster EV and 2025 Ram 1500 REV.
The new business is supported by six pillars: offering a large product range spanning vans, pickups, and micromobility solutions; zero emission offerings such as hydrogen and retrofit, alongside a second-generation BEV offering more range without comprising the capabilities offered by ICE versions; unique and seamless customer experiences through dedicated touchpoints worldwide, EV charging and energy management support through the Free2move Charge, and further support from Stellantis Financial Services; a new digital converter/upfitter ecosystem to reduce lead time; all vans and pickups connected and activated by the end of 2023; and a global manufacturing footprint with 15 commercial vehicle plants in Europe, North America, South, America, the Middle East, and Africa. The Pro One strategy is also piloting a retrofit program with Qinomic, which aims to extend the life span of existing internal combustion van fleets through an affordable electrification conversion method.
Leveraging its global sales and service touchpoints, Stellantis will support immersive, tailored partnerships with customers through extended opening hours and its network of sales and service advisors. Here, using a Pro One 360-degree approach, Stellantis product specialists and content advisors can help professionals select the vehicles, equipment configurations and services that best match their requirements. Depending on the customer’s expectation, capabilities and mission, the corporation will propose the best suited business solution.
With its customer-centric mindset and in line with market trends, Stellantis will look to utilize Pro One to launch a new factory-built version of the large delivery van, with equipment and features aimed at improving efficiency of drivers, including a roll-up door at the back and a pocket door.
Leveraging its existing global partnerships, Pro One will help link converters and upfitters with business customers, retailers and the OEM within a digital customer journey that works to reduce production and delivery lead times. This integrated approach includes giving converters and upfitters shared access to a fully digital ecosystem. To electrify conversions, converters and upfitters will also take advantage of the new e-Power Take Off (ePTO) solution, which uses the installed energy of the vehicle instead of adding additional batteries.
In achieving its service revenue target of €5 billion (as one of seven accretive businesses in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan), Stellantis will aim to have all of its new vans and pickups connected by the end of 2023 and offering over-the-air updates from 2026. This updated capability and connectivity will enable new services packs, focused on business continuity and efficiency, with the final goal to reduce fleet downtime and the total cost of ownership. These packs will offer services such as digital maintenance monitoring, eco-drive coaching, task management, charge management software to optimize EV fleets, and real-time driver alerts.
