  • Stellantis is officially here as Groupe PSA and FCA complete merger

FIAT Chrysler and PSA sealed their long-awaited merger on Saturday to create Stellantis, the world's fourth-largest automotive group with deep enough pockets to fund the shift to electric driving and take on bigger rivals Toyota and Volkswagen.

Chief Executive Carlos Tavares said the merger would add 25 billion euros (US$30 billion) in value for shareholders over the years, thanks to projected cost cuts.

Stellantis shares rose 2.5% in Milan in early trading to 13.18 euros ($15.91), recovering losses to Fiat Chrysler from Friday. "We possess the necessary size, resources, diversity and know-how to successfully take up the opportunities offered by the new era of transport", said Elkann "Our aim is to build something unique and great, offering our clients original, safe, practical, innovative and sustainable vehicles and services".

FCA CEO Mike Manley will head Stellantis' American operations, while FCA Chairman John Elkann has been made chairman of Stellantis.
