Stellantis NV has planned to invest $2.8 billion to modernise its two Canadian assembly factories to build electric vehicles. Stellantis is aiming to add a new car platform that can be used to make electric vehicles at its plants in Windsor and Brampton, Ontario. According to a report by Bloomberg, this investment by Stellantis will restore employment at the two factories, which have been adversely impacted in recent years.

It has plans to bring in 75 fully-electric vehicles and sell five million EVs a year by 2030.
