Samsung SDI and Stellantis plan to start producing batteries for electric vehicles in the first half of 2025. These batteries will be used in hybrid and all-electric vehicles produced for the Canadian, Mexican and US markets by brands owned by Stellantis. The Korean company in its press release said that the annual production capacity of the new plant will initially be about 23 GWh, and in the future it is planned to increase this figure to 40 GWh.

Samsung did not disclose the amount of investment in the new production. And the exact location of the future plant is also kept secret.

Recall that Samsung SDI is one of the world’s largest manufacturers of batteries. Korean-made batteries are already being installed in electric vehicles such as the Fiat 500e and Jeep Wrangler 4xe.

As for Stellantis, this corporation was formed in 2021 as a result of the merger of the Italian-American automaker Fiat Chrysler Automobiles with the French company Groupe PSA. It owns 14 car brands, including such well-known brands as Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Fiat, Jeep, Opel, Maserati and Peugeot.
