In a declining overall market, Stellantis has confirmed its strong position in passenger and light commercial vehicles in Europe in the first quarter of 2022. While the market has declined by 12.3%, Stellantis has achieved a 21.0% market share and a leadership position in key markets like France, Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and Greece.
In the first quarter of this year, Peugeot and Citroën are among the top 10 brands. In addition, five Stellantis models made it into the top 10 product ranking: Peugeot 208, Citroën C3, Peugeot 2008, Opel/Vauxhall Corsa, and Fiat Panda. The Peugeot 208 was the most popular electric car in Europe.
In addition, Stellantis has confirmed its leading position in the European (EU30) light commercial vehicle market with a 34.0% share and almost 145,000 vehicles sold in the first quarter of 2022.
With this move, Stellantis is strengthening its position among the leaders in the automotive market. At the same time, Stellantis continues on the path toward alternative drives. The aim is to guarantee accessible and environmentally friendly mobility for everyone. As announced in the Dare Forward 2030 strategic plan, Europe will play a fundamental role in this.
Stellantis' Achievement in the Field of Zero-Emission Vehicles
In the LEVs (passenger cars and light commercial vehicles) market, Stellantis is present in important countries such as Italy (35.7% market share), France (30.3%), Spain (21.8%), and Poland (14, 9%). Stellantis is number one, with a 44.5% market share in the low-emission light commercial vehicle business.
The Fiat 500e, the Peugeot e-208, and the hybrid versions of the Peugeot 3008 are among the best-selling low-emission vehicles in Europe, with more than 34,000 units sold in the first quarter. In addition, the Fiat 500e ranks third in the BEV market, and the Peugeot 3008 ranks third in the PHEV (plug-in hybrid vehicles) market.
These achievements are a vital sign for Stellantis in the region. They set the course for achieving a 100% BEV (Battery Electric Vehicle) sales mix in Europe by this decade. Since it was founded just over a year ago, the company has focused entirely on electrification to guarantee democratic mobility that protects the planet for future generations.
"As part of our strategic commitment to electrification, we are investing €30 billion in e-mobility and software globally between 2021 and 2025 to achieve net-zero carbon emissions by 2038. Furthermore, we are introducing models becoming ever more environmentally friendly with this goal in mind. Furthermore, we work with best-in-class partners to find new solutions that meet customer needs while creating a sustainable, circular economy," said Maxime Picat, Chief Operating Officer Enlarged Europe.
