Stellantis offers details of Windsor and Brampton plant plans

Chrysler’s parent company, Stellantis, plans to build an electric vehicle capable of a range of up to 500 miles on one 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 on Friday highlight the changes to come as the automaker prepares to implement its electrification plans in the coming years. Stellantis, owner of the Jeep, Ram, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands, has announced that it will invest $35 billion (C$45 billion) through 2025 in electrification and related software in the whole 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 could be moved elsewhere or eliminated as gas-powered cars was not made clear in a press release Friday, but the changes are related to a previously announced retooling to accommodate new product plans in Brampton, which is expected to start in 2024. A product announcement for Brampton, which is outside of Toronto, is to be made later.
