Car manufacturer Stellantis on
Wednesday confirmed its commitment to reach a production level
of one million cars and commercial vehicles per year in Italy
under its Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan.
In a statement released after a meeting at the business and Made in Italy ministry the group reaffirmed "the centrality of Italy" in its global strategy and the "will to create a sustainable future for its Italian operations", including through the ambition to reach 1 million vehicles (cars and commercial vehicles) at the end of the Dare Forward 2030 plan.
Earlier Business and Made in Italy Minister Adolfo Urso said the meeting with Stellantis represented a "turning point for the country system to achieve an ambitious but concrete goal: to reverse the decline in production recorded in recent years in Italy to reach the threshold of one million vehicles manufactured at Italian production sites".
"Last year only 450,000 cars were produced in Italy against 1.4 million registrations, and 80% of the incentives ended up in cars produced abroad, including by Stellantis. This can no longer happen," Urso said.
