Following the successful merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles NV (FCA) and Peugeot S.A (Groupe PSA), the combined group was renamed Stellantis. 

The name Stellantis is rooted in the Latin verb stello meaning “to brighten with stars.” It draws inspiration from this new and ambitious alignment of storied automotive brands and strong company cultures that in coming together are creating one of the new leaders in the next era of mobility while at the same time preserving all the exceptional value and the values of its constituent parts. It will only be used on the corporate level.

The 11-member Board of Directors is led by Chairman John Elkann. Carlos Tavares as chief executive officer leads one of the most experienced and successful management teams in the industry whose diversity, experience and competitive spirit are amongst its key strengths.

Stellantis already has a well-established presence in three regions – Europe, North America and Latin America – in addition to significant untapped potential in important markets such as China, Africa, the Middle East, Oceania and India. With industrial operations in more than 30 countries, the company has the ability to efficiently meet and exceed consumer expectations and deliver vehicles and services of unparalleled quality in more than 130 markets.

Nine governance committees will ensure an efficient operating structure from day one, including company-wide performance and strategy, planning, regions, manufacturing, brand and styling.

As the electrified market continues to grow, Stellantis is well positioned today with 29 electrified models available and plans to introduce 10 additional vehicles by the end of this year.

The company is strongly committed to playing an active part in contributing to the societies in which it operates, as it works toward achieving a long-term goal of carbon neutrality across all products, assembly plants and other facilities.
