Business and Made in Italy Minister
Adolfo Urso said Thursday he expected Stellantis to create a
gigafactory in Italy too after the one the Italo-Franco-US
carmaker recently unveiled in France.
“I have talked to Stellantis, as is my duty, several times in
these months of government,” Uro said in Brussels after recent
doubts about the carmaker’s commitment to Italian production.
“I met (CEO Carlo) Tavares twice, once in Rome, and on that
occasion he assured me of the goal of reaching a production
level in Italy of one million vehicles.
“He said this publicly.
“Then I also met him in France, when they inaugurated the first
“I expect that one will soon be realised in our country too”.
Likewise, the minister added, “I have met (Chairman) John Elkann
Elkann this week confirmed Stellantis’s Italian commitments
after Tavares said it would need major incentives to make more
e-cars to keep up its Italian production.
