Stellantis Increases Electric Drive Modules Production

Stellantis N.V., an automotive brand company, announced it plans to increase production capacity of electric drive modules (EDMs) by adding production in Szentgotthard, Hungary.

The increase in production by the auto manufacturer is scheduled to start in late 2026 with a €103 million investment in Szentgotthard. The investment amount includes grants and contributions from the Hungarian government.

“Bringing production of electric drive modules to Szentgotthard to support our transformation towards electrification is another important part of our goal to provide customers with clean, safe and affordable mobility,” said Arnaud Deboeuf, Stellantis Chief Manufacturing Officer, in a statement. “The people at this plant can be proud that their work will be an integral part of our electrified future and a core element of delivering customer-focused, class-leading electrified vehicles from our iconic brands.”

The production of the EDMs will be housed in existing buildings at the plant. New work related to electric drive production at the plant will include the machining of certain key components and final assembly and testing of 3-in-1 EDMs that combine the electric motor, reduction gearset, and inverter into a single unit.

The Szentgotthard plant currently constructs the 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder and 1.6-liter four-cylinder internal combustion engines used in a variety of Stellantis brand vehicles. 

Stellantis is investing more than €50 billion in electrification over the next decade to deliver on the Dare Forward 2030 targets of reaching a 100% passenger car battery electric vehicle (BEV) sales mix in Europe and 50% passenger car and light-duty truck BEV sales mix in the United States by 2030. 

The company is securing approximately 400 GWh of battery capacity, including support from six battery manufacturing plants in North America and Europe to achieve these sales targets. Stellantis is on track to become a carbon net zero corporation by 2038, all scopes included, with single-digit percentage compensation of remaining emissions.
