In late 2019, former Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and Groupe PSA reached a definitive agreement to merge their operations, creating the world’s fourth-largest automotive group by volume and the third largest by revenue. The merged company, later named Stellantis, received approval from the European Commission in December 2020 and from the respective shareholders of FCA and PSA in January 2021. Stellantis started operating as a public company with listing on the Euronext in Paris, France; the Borsa Italiana in Milan, Italy; and the New York Stock Exchange, United States. The company’s corporate headquarters is located in Hoofddorp in the Netherlands.

Stellantis brought together 14 iconic brands from FCA and PSA, each with their own identity and value. These brands are Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, Lancia, Maserati, and Ram Truck from FCA and Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobile, Opel, and Vauxhall from PSA. Together, these brands enable Stellantis to offer a diverse range of vehicles that include low-cost, entry-level compact cars to premium sedans, sport utility vehicles (SUVs), sports cars, light commercial vans, and pickup trucks. Stellantis operates in 30 countries across Europe, North and South America, and Asia and serves customers in more than 130 countries around the world.
