AMSTERDAM, November 3, 2022 – As global sales of Stellantis’ battery electric vehicles (BEVs) increased 41% y-o-y to 68k units, and sales of low emission vehicles rose 21k units y-o-y to 112k vehicles in Q3 2022, the Company continued to execute its bold electrification plans and progress towards achieving its Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan goals.

Offering best-in-class fully electrified vehicles: Jeep® brand announced its plan to become the global leader in SUV electrification, bringing four all-electric SUVs to North America and Europe by 2025, supporting Stellantis’ carbon net zero ambition. The announcement came just weeks after Dodge took a giant step forward on the performance brand’s road to an electrified future, revealing the Dodge Charger Daytona SRT, a concept that reimagines what a BEV can be.

Executing on its plan to become the global leader in SUV electrification, the Jeep brand unveiled the all-new Jeep Avenger, the brand’s first-ever BEV, at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, with pre-booking for the 1st Edition beginning the same day.

To meet the growing demand for electrified vehicles, Stellantis announced a new agreement with joint venture partner Punch Powertrain to increase production of the future-generation electrified dual-clutch transmissions (eDCT) for Stellantis hybrid and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles. The eDCTs, which will be built at Stellantis’ Mirafiori Complex in Turin, Italy, will complement the existing capacity in Metz, France.

Investing in a Circular Economy: The Mirafiori Complex will also be home to Stellantis’ first Circular Economy Hub, starting with three activities for the sustainable use of vehicles and parts: vehicle reconditioning, vehicle dismantling, and parts remanufacturing. The Hub will open in 2023.

Building the roadmap for the future of mobility: Stellantis revealed that it has built one of the biggest and widest collaborative ecosystems in the world, with more than 160 co-funded projects and over 1,000 different partners worldwide. The projects align with Stellantis’ strategic technical domains, which include autonomous driving, connectivity, manufacturing, electrification technologies and advanced propulsion.

Segments (all market share and ranking references are for Q3 2022): North America: Market share of 10.8%, down 20 bps y-o-y, with U.S. share down 70 bps to 11.1%. Enlarged Europe: EU30 market share of 19.2%, down 90 bps y-o-y. South America: Market leader with 22.6% share, down 150 bps y-o-y. Commercial Vehicles market leader in South America and EU30, with 30.8% and 29.2% share, respectively.

Maserati: The all-new Grecale, which launched in June 2022, continues to attract a whole new audience. In 2023, one of the brand’s icons returns: the all-new GranTurismo with Nettuno engine and the GranTurismo Folgore, the first BEV in the brand’s history. Maserati will follow up with the all-new Grecale Folgore in mid-2023 and the all-new GranCabrio, available in internal combustion engine and Folgore models.

Upcoming Event: January 5: Ram Revolution electrification and technology event at CES 2023 in Las Vegas

On November 3, 2022 at 1:00 p.m. CET / 8:00 a.m. EDT, a live audio webcast and conference call will be held to present Stellantis’ Third Quarter 2022 Shipments and Revenues. The audio webcast and recorded replay will be accessible under the Investors section of the Stellantis corporate website at www.stellantis.com.

(A) PSA was identified as the accounting acquirer in the Merger, which was accounted for as a reverse acquisition, under IFRS 3 – Business Combinations, and, as such, it contributed to the results of the Company beginning January 1, 2021. FCA was consolidated into Stellantis effective January 17, 2021, the day after the Merger became effective
(B) FCA consolidated Net revenues, January 1 – January 16, 2021, excluding intercompany transactions
(C) Reclassifications made to present FCA’s Net revenues January 1 – January 16, 2021 consistently with that of PSA
(D) Pro Forma Stellantis consolidated Net revenues, January 1 – September 30, 2021

NOTES

(1) Combined shipments include shipments by the Company’s consolidated subsidiaries and unconsolidated joint ventures, whereas Consolidated shipments only include shipments by the Company’s consolidated subsidiaries.
(2) Completed merger of Peugeot S.A. (“PSA”) with and into Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (“FCA”) on January 16, 2021 (“Merger”). On January 17, 2021, combined company was renamed Stellantis N.V. (“Stellantis” or “Company”). PSA was determined to be the acquirer for accounting purposes, therefore, the historical financial statements of Stellantis represent the continuing operations of PSA, which also reflect the loss of control and the classification of Faurecia S.E. (“Faurecia”) as a discontinued operation as of January 1, 2021 with the restatement of comparative periods. Acquisition date of business combination was January 17, 2021, therefore, results of FCA for the period January 1 – 16, 2021 are excluded from YTD 2021 results unless otherwise stated. YTD 2021 Pro Forma results are presented as if the Merger had occurred on January 1, 2020 and include results of FCA for the period January 1 – 16, 2021.
(3) Adjusted operating income/(loss) excludes from Net profit/(loss) from continuing operations adjustments comprising restructuring, impairments, asset write-offs, disposals of investments and unusual operating income/(expense) that are considered rare or discrete events and are infrequent in nature, as inclusion of such items is not considered to be indicative of the Company’s ongoing operating performance, and also excludes Net financial expenses/(income), Tax expense/(benefit) and Share of the profit/(loss) of equity method investees.
Unusual operating income/(expense) are impacts from strategic decisions, as well as events considered rare or discrete and infrequent in nature, as inclusion of such items is not considered to be indicative of the Company’s ongoing operating performance. Unusual operating income/(expense) includes, but may not be limited to: impacts from strategic decisions to rationalize Stellantis’ core operations; facility-related costs stemming from Stellantis’ plans to match production capacity and cost structure to market demand; and convergence and integration costs directly related to significant acquisitions or mergers.
(4) Industrial free cash flows is calculated as Cash flows from operating activities less: cash flows from operating activities from discontinued operations; cash flows from operating activities related to financial services, net of eliminations; investments in property, plant and equipment and intangible assets for industrial activities; contributions of equity to joint ventures and minor acquisitions of consolidated subsidiaries and equity method and other investments; and adjusted for: net intercompany payments between continuing operations and discontinued operations; proceeds from disposal of assets and contributions to defined benefit pension plans, net of tax. The timing of Industrial free cash flows may be affected by the timing of monetization of receivables and the payment of accounts payables, as well as changes in other components of working capital, which can vary from period to period due to, among other things, cash management initiatives and other factors, some of which may be outside of the Company’s control.
