Cassino plant in Italy hosts production of large electric vehicles based on the Stellantis STLA Large platform
Stellantis has made a new announcement in connection with its ‘Dare Forward 2030’ electrification strategy. This is the allocation of the production of large electric vehicles, based on the Group’s ‘STLA Large’ platform, to the Cassino plant, located in Italy.
Currently, the Cassino site is responsible for the production of premium vehicles for the Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands. The company says that the vehicles to be produced at the plant will be announced at a later date. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said:
“The Cassino plant has a rich history of innovation and technology. The vehicles we are designing on the STLA platforms will revolutionise the driving experience with cutting-edge features and capabilities, which is why we rely on Stellantis’ skilled workers and site management to master our bold cost and quality targets.
The support of our Cassino workforce and the foresight of local and national officials further drive our efforts to delight customers with clean, safe and affordable mobility.”
The Italian Cassino plant is the second to host production of the ‘STLA Large’ based BEVs, joining the Windsor assembly plant in Canada. The Cassino site will implement resource reduction actions, such as reducing water by half since 2017 or capturing solar energy through solar panels located in the car parks.
The Stellantis ‘STLA Large’ platform, part of the Group’s four platforms, is designed to create vehicles with a range of up to 800 kilometres, with Stellantis-designed electric drive modules (EDMs) and modular battery packs. The platform is flexible, allowing the length and width of the platform, as well as the powertrain configuration, to be adjusted to suit specific product designs.
Stellantis is investing more than 30 billion euros by 2025 in electrification and software, with the goal of offering electric vehicles to customers and cutting CO2 emissions by half by 2030 and achieving carbon neutrality by 2038. Another major goal of the Group’s strategy is to make 100% of passenger car sales in Europe and 50% of passenger car and light truck sales in the United States fully electric by the end of the decade.
