Stellantis’s EV roadmap hinges heavily on its battery strategy
While the cost-effective, nickel-cobalt-free chemistry may not deliver class-leading performance, Stellantis’s plan to introduce solid-state batteries from 2026 could become a gamechanger, if the technology matures for mass production in time
Amsterdam-based Stellantis announced its vehicle electrification strategy for this decade and beyond on its EV Day on 8 July. The parent company to over a dozen iconic brands, including Fiat, Citroën, Peugeot, Jeep, Chrysler, Dodge, Ram, and Maserati, plans to pump in EUR30 billion (over USD35 billion) over the next five years in electrifying all brands through this decade. At the heart of its giant plan are four all-new battery-electric vehicle–focused platforms, three core electric drive module families, and two battery cell chemistries.
