In case you missed it, FCA and PSA made their marriage official recently in an even-steven partnership. The merger is called ‘Stellantis’ and is now the world’s fourth-largest automaker, sitting behind Toyota, Volkswagen, and Renault-Mitsubishi-Nissan. Both the groups have many marquees under their respective umbrellas, but Stellantis won’t be operating all of them. While there were rumors of which brands would make the cut and which ones would be knocked off, there was nothing concrete so far.
But, Stellantis’ has now dropped the first bomb saying the Street and Racing Technology (SRT) division is getting chopped off, On the bright side, however, the engineers working for the performance division will be integrated into the “company’s global engineering organization”, which means many brands under Stellantis could be SRT-ified!
