Stellantis, the carmaker formed from the merger of Fiat Chrysler and PSA Peugeot, reported a rise in earnings for 2022 and a surge in sales as its push into electric vehicles (EVs) continues. The company said its net revenue of €179.6bn ($214.9bn) was up 18% from the previous year, while net profit rose 26% to €16.8bn. Stellantis (NYE:SLTA)plans to convert all of its European sales and half of its US sales to battery-electric vehicles by 2030. This strategy led to a 41% increase in battery EV sales in 2022, to 288,000 vehicles, compared with the previous year. Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said the company now has the technology, products, raw materials and full battery ecosystem to lead the same transformative journey in North America. Stellantis is set to start selling two fully electric SUVs in North America and another in Europe over the next two years, while its Ram brand will roll out an electric pickup truck this year.
