Who is Stellantis?

April 6, 2024

Stellantis is one of the world’s largest car manufacturers, created in 2021 with the 50:50 merger of PSA Group Peugeot-Citroen and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles. They are amongst the largest vehicle manufacturers in the world with ambitions to become the largest.

Who owns Stellantis?

As a result of the Stellantis buyout, the newly formed Stellantis company suddenly found itself with a lot of different owners including majority shareholders of both previous companies – namely the Peugeot family of France and the Agnelli family from Italy.


Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) was largely owned by the Agnelli family and as such took a majority stake in the new company through its business, Exor. As majority owners of PSA Group (Peugeot-Citroen), the Peugeot family also took a sizeable share in the business, as well as investment arms for the French government, Bpifrance. Additional shareholders include Chinese vehicle manufacturer Dongfeng Motor Corporation.

The resulting company was listed on the Milan and Paris Stock Exchanges as well as in America on New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) where it uses the ticker $STLA for trading.

Where are Stellantis headquarters?

Stellantis is technically registered and headquartered in The Netherlands. Officially, the business headquarters of Stellantis NV is located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with its corporate office in Taurusavenue 1, 2132 LS, Hoofddorp, The Netherlands.

Functionally, there are actually several bases of operation including Milan, Paris and Detroit. This is a result of the merging of many of the corporate entities into Stellantis and their own headquarters. Considerable cost-cutting, however, has seen a number of premises sold or the leases lapse. Perhaps most famous of all is the Lingotto building, once the headquarters of Fiat. Lingotto is most famous for its rooftop test track, immortalised in The Italian Job film. The Lingotto test track is now closed, but it is still walkable on foot. A portion of the rooftop is now used as an outside dining area for a restaurant. The iconic banked section of the Lingotto roof top test track is, however, still used for advertising and commercials. Stellantis no longer owns the Lingotto building.
