Coming hot on the heels of the Nissan battery plant news, the announcement by Stellantis that it would be opening a £100m EV site in Ellesmere Port is further progress for the UK automotive sector, securing thousands of direct and indirect jobs for the North West.
This will be Stellantis’s first EV-dedicated manufacturing site, with plans to open next year. All four of the Stellantis Group’s brands (Vauxhall, Opel, Peugeot and Citroen will benefit from the investment, meaning much of the output will be exported.
You will have seen many politicians and business people herald the news, no doubt, but let’s just also stop and thank the workforce whose efforts have seen Stellantis put its faith and investment into their skills and commitment.
From later this year, Ellesmere Port will build these all-electric vehicles for Stellantis:
|Electric LCV||Electric Passenger Car|
|Vauxhall Combo-e||Vauxhall Combo-e Life|
|Opel Combo-e||Opel Combo-e Life|
|Peugeot e-Partner||Peugeot e-Rifter|
|Citroën e-Berlingo||Citroën e-Berlingo|
