Stellantis is currently, the fourth largest automobile brand in the world, formed in January. After the brand was formed, it was thought that the automaker will abandon the plan of Groupe PSA to introduce the Peugeot brand in the US market, as Stellantis already has the most profitable models under FCA in the US market. However, the abandoning of the plan was officially confirmed on Tuesday by Stellantis.

Meanwhile, while Peugeot is not being launched in the US market, its cars are likely to influence future models from other Stellantis brands globally. For example, Alfa Romeo will start production of the Tonale compact crossover later in 2021, whose platform is expected to be the same CMP found in the Peugeot 2008 subcompact crossover. Also, an electric subcompact crossover from Alfa Romeo is expected to be introduced.
