According to reports, the Stellantis EV that's going to be built at the Windsor plant will b e capable of going up to 500 miles on a single charge.
Stellantis will retool its Windsor and Brampton assembly plants, affecting production of the Dodge Charger, Challenger and Chrysler 300.
Chrysler parent Stellantis plans to build an electric vehicle capable of up to 500 miles of range on a charge at its assembly plant in Windsor, Ontario, and the automaker intends to stop production of three popular passenger cars at its plant in Brampton, Ontario, in 2024.
The twin announcements Friday highlight the changes coming as the automaker moves to implement its electrification plans in the years ahead. Stellantis, which owns the Jeep, Ram, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands, has said it will invest $35 billion ($45 billion Canadian) through 2025 in electrification and related software around the world. It recently announced plans to build electric vehicle batteries at plants in Windsor, Ontario, and Kokomo, Indiana.
Whether production of the Dodge Challenger, Dodge Charger and Chrysler 300 as gas-powered cars might be moved elsewhere or eliminated wasn't made clear in a news release Friday, but the changes are tied to a previously announced retooling to accommodate new product plans at Brampton, set to start in 2024. A product announcement for Brampton, which is outside Toronto, is to be made later.
