Stellantis Invest In The Transformation Of Its Industrial Presence In Italy!​

For The Development Of A Sustainable Business...​


1664116082103.png

Stellantis has announced two major new initiatives regarding its industrial presence in Italy, aimed at supporting ambitious decarbonization goals and advancing the transformation of the global electrification value chain.

Stellantis and its joint venture partner, Punch Powertrain, have entered into a new agreement to increase the production of next-generation electrified dual-clutch (eDCT) transmissions for Stellantis’ hybrid and plug-in electric hybrid (PHEV) vehicles. The agreement aims to satisfy the growing demand for electric cars and to achieve the important objectives presented in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan. The upgraded plant will be located in the Mirafiori complex in Turin, Italy, and will complement the current production capacity in Metz, France.

Stellantis management (the PSA side) had a hissy fit because Aisin wouldn't let them build the hybrid 8-speed transaxle under license. So this is why they are going all out on the e-DCT unit. It's all about cost.

The particular Aisin unit comes in conventional and hybrid versions. The Hybrid version replaces the torque converter with an electric motor and clutch setup. The legacy PSA hybrids still use the Aisin transaxle, but they will be replaced by the e-DCT.

It's almost like its a good idea to in-house develop (almost) 100% of powertrain as a key competitive advantage 🙄

Do the biggest companies in the world by market-cap achieve their success by outsourcing, or insourcing?

Apple - the outlier
Google - builds and designs their own networking gear, datacenters, cooling
Amazon - build the worlds largest logistics network while also maintaining the largest IaaS (infrastructure as a service) computing platform
Microsoft - see Amazon/Google above, they do the same thing and still yield crazy margins

etc.

These automotive companies continue to shrink their way into eventually being outdone by the Chinese EV competitors.
