Stellantis is the new corporate name for the mega-merger between Fiat Chrysler Americas and Peugeot of France. The merger between two of the world's most iconic automobile manufacturing companies, cements a merger deal that has been years in the making.
This merger will re-introduce a number of brands to the automobile market in the USA, including (but not limited to) Citroen, Opel, Fiat, Peugeot, Renault and Ford.
