Stellantis is the fourth-largest automaker in the world and is the result of a 2021 merger between Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (abbreviated as FCA) and Peugeot S.A. (PSA Groupe).
Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. is an Italian and American multinational corporation and is the world's eighth-largest automaker. The group was established in October 2014 by merging Fiat and Chrysler into a new holding company. Fiat Chrysler Automobiles' main headquarters are located in the Netherlands, and the financial headquarters are in London for tax purposes. The holding company is listed on the New York Stock Exchange and Borsa Italiana in Milan. Exor N.V., an Italian investment group controlled by the Agnelli family, owns 29.19% of FCA and controls 44.31% through a loyalty voting mechanism. FCA's mass-market brands operate through two principal subsidiaries: FCA Italy (previously Fiat Group Automobiles SpA) and FCA US (formerly Chrysler Group LLC). The company's portfolio includes Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Fiat, Fiat Professional, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, and Ram Trucks. Ferrari was spun off from the group in 2016. Today, FCA operates in four global markets: NAFTA, LATAM, APAC, and EMEA. FCA also owns industrial subsidiaries Comau, Magneti Marelli, Mopar, and Teksid.
In July of 2020, FCA announced it would be merging with Peugeot S.A. (PSA Groupe) and formally changing its name to Stellantis. The merger resulted in Stellantis becoming the fourth-largest automaker in the world. It was motivated by both automakers, FCA and PSA, to expand consumer bases, develop better electric vehicle technologies, and build more electric vehicles. Stellantis unveiled its new logo in November of 2020 to more closely reflect the company's new name, which is derived from the Latin word "stello," meaning "to brighten with stars." The names and logos of individual brands like Jeep, Fiat, Dodge, Ram, etc., will remain unchanged, while newly developed vehicle brands will fall under Stellantis.
