Yesterday, Carlos Tavares, the chief executive officer of Stellantis, the recently merged corporation of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and the French PSA Group, which includes the Jeep brand, unveiled images of the company’s first-ever fully electric Jeep SUV as part of their Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan for the next decade, as they move towards the full electrification of their SUV models.
This new fully electric Jeep will be launched in early 2023 as part of the brand’s expansion and goal of achieving the Jeep brand’s vision of Zero Emission Freedom.
Stellantis is committing to become the industry champion in the fight against climate change with the target of reaching carbon net zero emissions by 2038. Commenting on this vision for the future, Carlos Tavares said:
“Dare Forward 2030 inspires us to become so much more than we’ve ever been. We are expanding our vision, breaking the limits and embracing a new mindset, one that seeks to transform all facets of mobility for the betterment of our families, communities and the societies in which we operate.
Powered by our diversity, Stellantis leads the way the world moves by delivering innovative, clean, safe, and affordable mobility solutions.
Stellantis will be the industry champion in climate change mitigation, becoming carbon net zero by 2038, with a 50% reduction by 2030. Taking a leadership role in decarbonisation, as well as a decisive step forward in the circular economy, is our contribution to a sustainable future.
As part of that leadership, we are setting the course for 100% of sales in Europe and 50% of sales in the United States to be battery electric vehicles (BEVs) by the end of this decade. We plan to have more than 75 BEVs and reach global annual BEV sales of five million vehicles by 2030.
Today, we are thrilled to present the Jeep brand’s first-ever fully electric SUV launching in early 2023 and a preview of the new Ram 1500 BEV pickup truck arriving in 2024. Our journey is fueled by a focus on innovation and engineering excellence that will put the latest technology into all our vehicles – from the most affordable to the high-performance and luxury – all offered through the extensive product portfolio of our incredible and unique house of brands.”
He goes on to say:
“We are making Stellantis an extraordinary place to work and a magnet for people with the drive to make customers’ lives better, unleashing our full potential for the digital and electrified future.
We are adding more powerful engines to our strong global operations. Operational excellence, speed of execution and a breakeven point of less than 50% of shipments will remain our hallmarks. We will double our Net Revenues by 2030 and sustain double-digit Adjusted Operating Income margins throughout the decade.
We are proud of our rich history. It shows our grit, perseverance and agility. To this we add the mindset of entrepreneurs to deliver Dare Forward 2030.”
