The Stellantis Alliance intends to modernize a plant in Italy for the assembly of new sedans.
Stellantis will modernize the Mirafori production site in the Italian city of Turin and begin production of electric cars. After the modernization, the company will start producing electric modifications of the Maserati Ghibli and Quattroporte sedans. Reconstruction of the plant is necessary to reduce costs – the management of the concern is not happy with the fact that Italian factories are four times more expensive than factories in France and Spain.
Such a noticeable difference in costs is due to the fact that models assembled in Italy have significantly lower sales, which increases the unit costs of production.
The Stellantis Alliance Press Service informs:
“Stellantis is working with determination and dedication to prepare all of its Italian industrial sites for the transition to electric vehicles.”
Recall that earlier representatives of Stellantis reported that in the next two years the alliance intends to release 20 electrified models at once, among which 10 models will be fully electric. Another vehicle from this list will be offered in both hybrid and all-electric versions.
