Production of electric motors in France to increase to more than 1 million by 2024
Stellantis has recently announced the ramp-up of M3 electric motor production in Trémery (Lorraine, France), through the Emotors joint venture with Nidec Leroy-Somer Holding. These next-generation electric motors will be fitted in the DS 3 E-Tense, Peugeot e-208, Jeep Avenger and Opel Mokka electric cars in early 2023.
This new M3 electric motor delivers 115 kW (156 hp) of power and 260 Nm of torque. Together with the new batteries, the range of these electrics is expected to exceed 400 kilometres. With this increase in production, a production capacity of more than 1 million electric motors per year is planned by 2024.
This is a further step in the ‘Dare Forward 2030’ strategy, which envisages the goal of reaching 100% of the sales mix of all-electric passenger cars in Europe by 2030. As part of the plan, in recent years, the Group has invested €2 billion in its production facilities.
In France alone, Stellantis will produce 12 all-electric models in: Mulhouse (Peugeot e-308 sedan, e-308 SW and e-408), Sochaux (Peugeot e-3008, e-5008), Rennes (Citroën’s future electric SUV), Poissy (new electric DS 3 E-Tense and Opel Mokka) and Hordain (Peugeot e-Expert, Citroën e-Jumpy, Opel/Vauxhall Vivaro-e, Fiat e-Scudo and Toyota Proace Electric). The assembly plants will use electric components also made in France.
