Stellantis And Leapmotor: The Strategic Alliance For Electric Mobility

In an ever-changing automotive landscape, innovation is essential to meet growing demands for sustainability and technology. With this in mind, the alliance between Leapmotor and Stellantis proves to be a significant step towards an electric and ecological future.

Who are Leapmotor and Stellantis?

Leapmotor is an emerging Chinese company specializing in electric vehicles. Founded in 2015, it quickly became a major electric mobility player. It offers a diverse range of innovative and affordable electric cars.

Stellantis, for its part, was born from the merger between the French group PSA (Peugeot, Citroën, DS Automobiles) and the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA). This merger, concluded in 2021, gave birth to the fourth-largest automobile manufacturer in the world.

The Stellantis Leapmotor Alliance for Electrification

Stellantis invested $1.5 billion to acquire a 20% stake in Leapmotor. This investment aims to support Leapmotor in its research and development efforts and increase its electric vehicle production capacity.

In addition to the capital investment, Stellantis owns 51% of Leapmotor International. This joint venture will be responsible for the global distribution of Leapmotor electric vehicles outside of China, leveraging Stellantis’ global distribution network.

The alliance between Leapmotor and Stellantis represents a convergence between Leapmotor’s technological expertise in electric vehicles and Stellantis’ global reach in the automotive market. This collaboration aims to accelerate the transition to electric mobility by jointly developing new electric vehicle models and sharing key technologies.

Impact on the automotive market

In this way, both companies demonstrate their commitment to innovation and sustainability. By joining forces, they aim to offer consumers more efficient, more affordable and environmentally friendly vehicles.

The arrival of new models of electric vehicles resulting from this alliance could shake up the global automobile market. By offering attractive electric alternatives, Leapmotor and Stellantis could help accelerate the adoption of electric vehicles on a large scale. This thereby reduces carbon emissions and the environmental footprint of the automotive industry.


This collaboration promises to bring innovations and contribute to a greener and brighter future for the automotive industry.
