We will be able to see the first of them in 2023.

Today, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares outlined his company’s new strategy, which includes the development of four new platforms for electric vehicles and the construction of two new battery factories in Europe.

Currently, all compact electric cars of the concern, such as the Fiat 500e, Peugeot 208-e, Opel Mokka-e and a number of others, are based on the upgraded e-CMP platform. According to the latest data, the second generation of this platform will be released in 2022, and in 2026 it will be replaced by STLA Small. It is reported to be the basis for the compact Stellantis models.

At the end of 2023, cars on the STLA Medium platform will start to go on sale. These will be C and D class models, as well as full-size hatchbacks and family crossovers. Somewhat later, cars will appear on the STLA Large platform, which will form the basis for large crossovers and SUVs, as well as for models of the light commercial vehicle segment.

Finally, the STLA Frame platform will be developed specifically for the North American market. It will produce large pickups and SUVs. According to preliminary data, the cruising range for all four new platforms will be from 500 to 800 kilometers. Tavares did not give any more details.
