Stellantis to invest 130 million euros in German plant for new Opel electric car


MILAN (Reuters) – Carmaker Stellantis said on Wednesday it would invest 130 million euros ($140 million) in its Eisenach assembly plant in Germany to produce a new battery electric vehicle (BEV) there from the second half of next year.

The new BEV vehicle will be the successor to the Opel Grandland compact SUV currently produced in Eisenach, the automaker said in a statement.

It will be based on the ‘STLA Medium’ platform, one of the four platforms that will underpin all Stellantis’ new models starting from next year.

The Eisenach plant, in the German state of Thuringia, was opened in 1992, when Opel was part of General Motors. As of 2022 it has produced a total of 3.7 million vehicles, Stellantis said.
