During this morning’s 2021 Financial Results presentation, Stellantis also shared some future product news ahead of its scheduled “Long Term Strategic Plan” for investors. That event is scheduled for Tuesday, March 1st. at 2 p.m. CET / 8 a.m. EST., but today, we got a look at a list of some of the scheduled launches for Stellantis’ electrified program.
According to the information released, there will be 17 new low-emission vehicles (LEVs) released by the automaker during 2022 and 2023. Those new LEVs will join the automaker’s already large global portfolio of 34 LEVs, which are currently available. So what are the 17 new electrified products? Let’s take a look…
Alfa Romeo –
- Tonale – the 2023 Tonale will offer plug-in electric (PHEV) capability for both the European and North American markets when it arrives. The C-SUV is the first of such, to be offered by the Italian brand.
- No new news on any future production from the iconic American “blue-collar luxury” brand. The Airflow Concept will make it into production according to our sources. However, that won’t take place until the 2024 model year. Two other new electrified vehicles could be joining the Airflow, all of which would be based on the STLA Large architecture by 2027. Currently, the Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid is the brand’s lone PHEV offering.
- Two new all-battery electric vehicles (BEVs) will be available for 2022 and 2023 and while Stellantis hasn’t officially announced what vehicles they are, we do one of those vehicles is the new e-C3 (internally codenamed “eCC21”).
- The introduction of the Chinese-built C5X offers the French brand a large PHEV crossover. The five-door hatchback pushes the design of an aggressive-looking estate to something of a Subaru-like crossover.
DS Automobiles –
- While there are no new releases for the 2022 and 2023 model year announced, the electrified premium French brand has continued to update its existing lineup to include more range capability going into the 2022 model year.
- Although we are scheduled to see a concept version of the next-generation Challenger before the end of Q1 2022, the big news is the introduction of the new Hornet. The Hornet will feature the same PHEV powertrain for North America as the Tonale and should open Dodge customers up to electrification for the first time. Those models with the new PHEV powertrain will wear the iconic Fratzog logo of the 1960s and 1970s, which will now symbolize electrified Dodge vehicles. The Italian-built Dodge will be shown later this year and roll off the assembly line in Q3 2022.
- The FIAT brand only has one new BEV coming to market in the next two years. While Stellantis has yet to say what that vehicle is, we believe that it the all-new 500e 5-Door model that is currently in development along side a new Jeep subcompact for the European marketplace.
FIAT Professional –
- The FIAT Professional has aleady announced its new e-Scudo commerical van to enter the European marketplace by the end of 2022. It will be placed between the Ducato and Doblò, both are already available.
- FIAT Professional also has one other BEV in the works, that has yet to be officially announced. We believe that it will be a BEV version of the successful Doblò commercial van (also known as the Ram ProMaster City in North America).
- The 2022 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WL74) 4xe is currently available in the North American marketplace and should start arriving in dealers soon in North America. The Jeep brand also announced this past week that its Grand Cherokee lineup for Europe, will only consist of only the 4xe lineup.
- Also listed is the introduction of an all-new BEV vehicle that has yet to be officially announced. We believe that the vehicle is a new A-segment vehicle, that Jeep has been working on for sometime internally named (Jeep Junior). The vehicle will be slot below the Renegade and be initially sold in the European market only.
- We have seen plenty of spy photos of the upcoming 2023 Maserati GranTurismo over the past year. The new GT car from Maserati will include both internal combustion engine (ICE) and BEV powertrain options. It will be joined by a convertible version (GranCabrio).
- Another vehicle to recieve an BEV powertrain in the Maserati lineup, will be the all-new Grecale D-SUV. Based on the Alfa Romeo Stelvio, the Grecale opens the Italian premium brand to an all-new segment that it hasn’t yet competed in. We shall see the new Grecale next month, as it will be unveiled on March 5th.
- The German brand and its English subsidary, have been in the process of electrifying their portfolios. However, the most important product to showcase the brand’s electrification strategy, the Astra hatchback and station wagon are currently being produced with PHEV powertrains. A new BEV version for both models is scheduled to join the lineup in 2023.
- With the successful launch of the all-new 308 underway and its PHEV powertrain, Peugeot will launch a BEV version by the end of the year. To help add to 308 hatchback’s success, Peugeot will also offer a PHEV and BEV station wagon version as well.
- Peugeot also mentions that it will be bring a new C-SUV segment crossover to its lineup in 2023. That vehicle will be offered as a PHEV.
- While Ram has made it clear that it will have a lineup of electrified pickups for the 2024 model year, the Ram ProMaster BEV will become the first electrified model from the brand when it arrives next year. The ProMaster BEV has already recieved orders from Amazon and is based on the widely-successful European Fiat e-Ducato commercial van.
