Stellantis will be able to produce 8.7m cars a year – behind Volkswagen, Toyota and Renault-Nissan – and create five billion euros annually.

The vote to merge the two companies took place last week (January 6) and was hailed as ‘historic’ by Groupe PSA chief executive Carlos Tavares and Fiat Chrysler chairman John Elkann.

At a virtual shareholders’ meeting, Elkann said: ‘We are living through a profound era of change in our industry.

‘We believe that the coming decade will redefine mobility as we know it.
