As per a report by Reuters, Carmaker Stellantis said that talks were continuing with the Italian government over the possible construction of a new battery plant, or gigafactory, in Italy. Stellantis, which already has two battery factory projects in France and Germany, has said that adding gigafactories in Europe and the United States would be decided this year.

Italy is one of its main production hubs in Europe

The company is holding talks on this with Rome, as Italy is one of its main production hubs in Europe. Stellantis also expects to announce later this month more stringent targets regarding its CO2 emissions in Europe, said Stellantis’ CEO Carlos Tavares, added the report.

The report added that since Stellantis was formed this year through the merger of Fiat Chrysler and France’s PSA, production in Italy has been under scrutiny for costing more than elsewhere in Europe. Stellantis is also working on more environmentally-friendly vehicles.
