Stellantis and Samsung To Build 2nd Battery Factory In U.S.


Stellantis and Samsung are already underway with a battery manufacturing facility in Indiana to supply batteries for the carmaker’s electric vehicles. Now the companies have announced a second factory will be built in the U.S. The first will go live in 2025 and the second in 2027.

These battery making facilities are a part of Stellantis’ plan to include 100 percent passenger car sales in Europe and half of U.S. passenger car sales be fully battery-electric by 2030. The company projects needing 400 gWh of battery capacity will be required to reach those goals.

Stellantis, the parent company to brands such as Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Jeep, Ram Truck, and others, says it is on track to become carbon net zero by 2038. With only single digit compensation for emissions as part of that mix.

The new battery facility’s location has not yet been announced.
