FCA Bank enters into a partnership with Carthago, a leading manufacturer of premium class motorhomes in Europe
FCA Bank further expands its footprint in the leisure vehicle market, strengthening its role in a rapidly developing sector across Europe. The Bank, a leader in mobility services, has entered into a new pan-European partnership with Carthago, a German brand founded in 1979 by Karl-Heinz Schuler and today one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of premium motorhomes.
FCA Bank will provide financial services to Carthago’s network of approximately 250 dealersas well as to the company’s end customers. The agreement, which is effective in all European markets where both partners operate, covers both brands: the premium models sold under the Carthago brand name and the Malibu motorhomes and camper vans which are positioned below, they all share a design that combines quality, elegance, comfort and dedication to detail.
Through the partnership with Carthago, and the recent arrangements with two other prestigious manufacturers, Knaus Tabbert and Concorde, FCA Bank will cover around 40% of the total European motorhome market. This is a constantly expanding sector, which has seen a veritable boom in registrations in recent years, a reflection of the growing importance of these vehicles for the international public. According to data from the European Caravan Federation, in 2021 alone there was record growth of 13.2% compared to the previous year, with a total of 181,299 new motorhomes registered.
