Stellantis, the parent company to brands, like Chrysler, Dodge, Alfa Romeo and Jeep, has announced its new electrification strategy. The new plan will see Stellantis invest more than €30 billion through 2025 in electrification and software.
Stellantis has a goal that by 2030, 70 percent of its sales in Europe and 40 percent of its sales in the United States will be low-emission vehicles. To meet its goal, it has outlined an electrification strategy for all 14 brands.
The big news is that Stellantis is working on four battery electric platforms. The flexible platforms can each support production up to 2 million units per year. The STLA Small platform has a driving range up to 300 miles, the STLA Medium has a 440 mile range, and both the STLA Large and STLA Frame platforms can travel up to 500 miles.
The platforms can also be configured with front-drive, rear-drive, all-wheel drive and 4xe. There are also two different batteries planned by 2024, a high energy-density option and a nickel cobalt-free alternative. By 2026, the first solid state battery technology will be introduced. To build the batteries, Stellantis is also planning five “gigafactories” in Europe and North America.
