€5.6 Billion



Stellantis announced a record investment plan for the South American region totaling €5.6 billion (R$30 billion) from 2025 to 2030, making it the largest investment in the history of the Brazilian and South American automotive industry.


The planned investments will support the launch of more than 40 new products during the period as well as the development of new Bio-Hybrid technologies, innovative decarbonization technologies across the automotive supply chain, and strategic new business opportunities.

The investment from Stellantis reinforces its leadership in the region, strengthens the development of the local industry, and accelerates its achievement of the Dare Forward 2030 long-term strategic plan as the region maintains its leadership in offering clean, safe and affordable mobility in Brazil and South America.

With this investment, Stellantis will be increasingly prepared to design, develop, and produce modern cars in the region, while also expanding its business. In Argentina, for instance, the company acquired a 19.9% stake in Argentina Litio y Energía S.A., a significant step toward establishing a cluster of sustainable battery materials to meet the electrification goals outlined in its global plan.

One of the beneficiaries of this investment are the cutting-edge Bio-Hybrid technologies, which combine electrification with hybrid engines powered by bio-fuels (ethanol) on three different levels. The Stellantis facility in Betim, Brazil is the Company’s global center of expertise for Bio-Hybrid technology, continuing its legacy of innovation. Stellantis, under the Fiat brand, pioneered the development and application of bio-fuel engine technology, which used 100% ethanol. In the future, the region will also produce a battery electric vehicle (BEV).

The production of the first vehicles equipped with Bio-Hybrid technology is flexible and can be integrated into various models manufactured by Stellantis. It is compatible with all production lines of the Company in the region. The new hybrid and electric technologies are expected to strengthen Brazilian engineering and the domestic industry. The Bio-Hybrid technology is supported by three hybrid powertrains that will be gradually produced and introduced to the market. These new technologies include Bio-Hybrid, Bio-Hybrid electrified dual-clutch transmissions (eDCT), Bio-Hybrid Plug-In, and BEV (100% electric). The new hybrid technologies will start to be available by the end of 2024.
