Stellantis, resulting from the alliance between Peugeot and Fiat, could represent the world’s fourth largest automotive group in terms of vehicles sold: eight million per year.
It is a group that could create a new strong player in the automotive industry.

Good or bad news for France?
A new alliance which could have serious consequences in France. “In France in particular, there is an industrial slaughter in the automotive sector which has been happening for several years and which unfortunately risks being deepened by this merger”, worries Christophe Ramaux, member of the appalled Economists.
This observation is not shared by the editor-in-chief of Les Échos Étienne Lefebvre. “I am not going to say that the French automotive industry is doing well today, it is going through a terrible crisis. But 10, 15 years ago, we could also imagine that PSA disappeared, as many national manufacturers disappeared, or even that Renault disappeared 20 years ago. So today, we have two groups which, by allying themselves, flirt with the best in the world, it’s still rather an industrial success ”, he believes.
