From 2023, everything could change for the Stellantis Group. In fact, a real revolution is expected in the Italian-French house at the beginning of next year that will completely change the face of the brand to provide customers with a network of services and functions never seen before. Let’s find out together what it is and how these important changes will affect motorists.
Stellantis is currently primarily a Dutch multinational holding company, but is also owned by other countries such as Italy, France and the United States. Born mainly from the merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA, this company was established and has its registered office in Amsterdam and actively controls fourteen car brands: Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Citroën, Dodge, DS Automobiles, FIAT, Jeep and Lancia And Maserati, Opel, Peugeot, Ram and Vauxhall trucks.
So, before the merger, the merger between Fiat Chrysler, which at the same time completed the acquisition of Chrysler in 2009, was already feared by Fiat CEO Sergio Marchionne. With his death in 2018, operations were halted until 2020 when the founding of the new group called Stellantis was announced to the press.
Today, the holding group is one of the leading automotive groups in the world, and in terms of sales volumes in 2021, it is ranked 29th among the groups that achieved the highest profits during the year.
Stellants, the revolution is coming
That’s right, as announced directly by the managing director of the group, it seems that the holding company will see a complete makeover and renovation of some production departments during 2023 and 2024. The new model should ensure the deployment of a more efficient and practical customer service network.
Precisely starting next year, we will see a complete reorganization of the sales network in countries such as Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands, with the rest of Europe seeing the implementation of the new schemes over the following year.
The plan envisioned by the Italian-French group is to move from the current distribution model, based on dealerships, to a dealership model in which we will see individual car brands gain greater control over prices and sales, with dealers instead who will deal mainly with them making deliveries and offering All customer assistance services.
Stellantis’ new organizational model should accompany the group’s transition to electric motors. In fact, sales of fully electric vehicles are scheduled to begin in 2026, which shows how ready the multinational is to pioneer this change both in Europe and in Asia.
