Stellantis Reveals Their Electric Future

Stellantis becomes the latest car group to announce their electric future with the spotlight going to DS. While the Group had initially stated that they would not switch a brand to electric before 2025. That has since been overturned with Stellantis announcing that DS Automobiles will go fully electric by 2024. Peugeot has started on their journey to electrification as well.

Next up is the American brands. With Dodge set to get an plug-in EV next year while Jeep will receive their first EV in 2023. In the Italian corner, Fiat are already going electric with the new 500 only available in an ‘e’ guise. Maserati will have an EV on sale next year in the form of a reinvigorated GranTurismo. Meanwhile, Alfa Romeo which seems to be one of Stellantis’ candidates for a resurrection will go fully electric in 2027.

Opel and Vauxhall will be the last Stellantis brands to go electric with their date set in 2028.

Nothing has been revealed of Chrysler yet with the exception of Stellantis’ CEO saying that the brand is in for a “rebound”. Overall, the Group is set to release 11 battery electric vehicles and 10 PHEVs over the next 24 months.
