VELs include electric, plug-in hybrid and fuel cell electric vehicles
Most of these models will only be available in Europe
A Jeep EV and a Dodge PHEV will be sold in North America, among others
Among the documents Stellantis released as part of its 2021 financial results announcement, a product map for calendar years 2022 and 2023 shows the number of low-emission vehicles (LEVs) expected from each of the automaker’s brands.
Stellantis classifies battery electric vehicles (EVs), plug-in hybrids (PHEVs), and fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs) as low-emission vehicles.
The map shows that, unsurprisingly, most of these upcoming models will be available in Europe but not North America.
However, it also confirms the arrival of at least two new models on our market, an electric Jeep and a plug-in hybrid Dodge. This latest model should be called the Hornet.
Alfa Romeo will also add a plug-in hybrid model to its lineup with the Tonale PHEV, which will arrive in Europe next summer and in North America in the last quarter of 2022. This model will most likely share its platform with the Dodge PHEV.
The automaker’s other Italian performance brand, Maserati, will launch two electric vehicles, the replacement for the GranTurismo (and related GranCabrio) and the Grecale SUV. Both should arrive on our shores a few months after their introduction in Europe.
The last model we should see before 2024 is the Ram ProMaster electric van, which will rival the Ford E-Transit and new electric delivery vans made by GM’s Rivian and BrightDrop.
Other models we probably won’t see here include all those sold by Citroën, Peugeot, Opel, Vauxhall, DS and Fiat.
Citroën and Peugeot will launch three LEV models over the next two years and Opel/Vauxhall will add electric and PHEV versions to its Astra hatchback and compact wagon.
Fiat will present an electric passenger model and two electric commercial models.
A total of 17 LEVs will be added to the Stellantis range by the end of next year, in addition to the 34 already available. Currently on our market, the only models that appear on this map are the Chrysler Pacifica PHEV, the Jeep Wrangler 4xe and the new Grand Cherokee 4xe.
This map stops before 2024, but we know of at least three upcoming EVs that will arrive that year or next, a Dodge electric sports car, a Ram EV pickup, and the already unveiled Chrysler Airflow SUV.
