Stellantis – the merger company of Groupe PSA and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles – has presented the annual figures. Over the first half of 2020, the parent company of Peugeot, Citroën, Opel, Fiat and Alfa Romeo, among others, made a big profit of 8.6 billion euros (previous year: 752 million euros).
Alfa Romeo goes 100 percent electric
During the presentation of the annual figures, Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares looked ahead to the future of his group. Perhaps most interesting was the announcement that Alfa Romeo will become a 100 percent electric brand from 2027. And that is ambitious, especially since the Italian brand now only supplies the outdated Giulia and Stelvio, without electrification.
Only in 2022 will the Alfa Romeo Tonale
Next year, a compact SUV will be added: the Alfa Romeo Tonale. It would actually have been unveiled earlier, but has been sent back to the development department by the new Alfa Romeo CEO. He wasn’t happy with the Tonale’s hybrid powertrain.
‘Alfa Romeo becomes Alfa e-Romeo’
‘From 2024, Alfa Romeo becomes Alfa e-Romeo‘ is the slogan that Stellantis attaches to the electrification campaign. Similar rules have been devised for other brands within the group:The most elegant way to protect the planet‘ (Lancia), ‘The art of travel, magnified‘ (DS) and ‘It’s only green when it’s green for all‘ (Fiat).
Finally successor to the Fiat Punto
Because to briefly walk through the other Stellantis brands: Lancia will be an electrified brand from 2024 (with hybrids and EVs), DS will only launch fully electric models from 2024 (the hybrids will still be available) and Fiat will contribute. in the bag with (finally) a successor for the Punto.
