Stellantis to Invest $2.8B in North American Plant Retoolings
May 3, 2022—Stellantis on Monday announced it will invest $2.8 billion in two Canadian plants in order to bolster its EV commitments.
Per a report from the Detroit Free Press, both the company's Windsor and Brampton assembly plants will be receiving massive upgrades to to build fully electric models.
The Brampton facility is currently where the Dodge Charger and Challenger, as well as the Chrysler 300, are produced—the future of the plant has been in question ever since Stellantis announced it would cease production of its two classic Dodge models. Now, the facility will get "at least one new electric model" and provide room for a "new flexible vehicle architecture."
The Windsor facility will add "multi-energy vehicle models" in addition to its current production lineup. Renovations of both facilities are expected to start next year.
