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.

The chief operating officer of Stellantis North America Mark Stewart said this investment will push the company to attain its electrification goals. “These investments reaffirm our long-term commitment to Canada and represent an important step as we move toward zero-emission vehicles," added Stewart.
