    Stellantis inks deal with Vulcan for CO2-free lithium supply in Europe

    Start-up will supply battery-grade lithium hydroxide to the automaker from 2026




    BERLIN -- Stellantis has signed a preliminary deal with lithium developer Vulcan Energy Resources for the supply of climate-friendly lithium from Germany, the automaker said on Monday.

    Stellantis is the latest automaker to sign a deal with the German-Australian start-up to lock down supplies of the battery metal ahead of an expected surge in global demand as a transition towards cleaner mobility gains traction.

    As part of the five-year agreement, Vulcan will supply between 81,000 and 99,000 tons of battery-grade lithium hydroxide in Europe to Stellantis from 2026, they said in a statement. No financial details of the agreement were provided.

    Vulcan is one of a number of companies testing a direct lithium extraction (DLE) method that uses less land and groundwater, making it more sustainable than the most-common existing methods of open-pit mines and brine evaporation ponds.

    Stellantis has pledged to invest more than 30 billion euros ($33.8 billion) through 2025 on electrifying its vehicle lineup.

    As part of this plan the group will build three battery production facilities in Europe, two in Germany and France through its ACC joint venture with Daimler and TotalEnergies and one in Italy, though details about it are still to be disclosed.

    Stellantis, whose brands include Opel, Citroen, Jeep and Alfa Romeo, is targeting more than 70 percent of sales in Europe to be of low-emissions vehicles by 2030.


    "This agreement is further proof that we have the competitive spirit to deliver on our commitments," Stellantis Chief Purchasing and Supply Chain Officer Michelle Wen said.

    The announcement comes a week after Vulcan signed a second deal with Renault to supply up to 32,000 metric tons of battery-grade lithium chemicals from its geothermal brine deposits in Germany.

    Vulcan already has supply deals with Belgian recycling group Umicore and South Korea's LG Chem.

    Stellantis Signs Lithium Supply Agreement with Vulcan Energy


    Agreement supports decarbonized supply of key raw material for electrified vehicle battery packs


    Key element to power Stellantis’ aggressive electrification strategy


    AMSTERDAM – Stellantis N.V. (NYSE / MTA / Euronext Paris: STLA) (“Stellantis”) and Vulcan Energy Resources Ltd. (ASX: VUL) announced today the signing of  a binding agreement (“Agreement”) for Vulcan to supply battery grade lithium hydroxide in Europe for use in electrified vehicles to the Stellantis Group. The five-year agreement calls for shipments to begin in 2026.

    The Vulcan supply agreement is a part of the Stellantis electrification strategy, detailed during the EV Day presentation in July 2021, to guarantee the adequate availability of key raw materials for electrified vehicle battery packs. Stellantis plans to invest more than €30 billion through 2025 in electrification and software development, while targeting to continue to be 30 percent more efficient than the industry with respect to total Capex and R&D spend versus revenues.

    “Stellantis is moving forward on its electrification strategy with speed and power. This agreement is further proof that we have the competitive spirit to deliver on our commitments,” said Michelle Wen, Stellantis Chief Purchasing and Supply Chain Officer. “Safe, clean and affordable freedom of mobility represents a strong expectation of our societies and we are committed to deliver on that matter.”

    Stellantis targets that more than 70 percent of its vehicle sales in Europe and more than 40 percent of vehicle sales in the United States will be low emission vehicles (LEV) by 2030. Each of the company’s 14 iconic vehicle brands is committed to offering best-in-class fully electrified solutions.

    Vulcan’s Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project in the Upper Rhine Valley in Germany uses geothermal energy to produce battery-quality lithium hydroxide from brine without the use of fossil fuels and minimal water usage, reducing the generation of carbon in the battery metals supply chain.

    “The definitive offtake agreement with Stellantis aligns with our mission to decarbonize the lithium ion battery and electric vehicle supply chain,” said Dr. Francis Wedin, Vulcan Managing Director. “The Vulcan Zero Carbon Lithium™ Project also intends to reduce the transport distance of lithium chemicals into Europe, and our location in Germany, proximal to Stellantis’ European gigafactories, is consistent with this strategy. We look forward to a long and productive relationship between Vulcan and Stellantis, as we work to achieve our shared sustainability and decarbonization ambitions.”

    Vulcan will supply Stellantis with a minimum of 81,000 metric tons and a maximum of 99,000 metric tons of lithium hydroxide over the five-year term of the agreement.

    The supply agreement is subject to the successful start of commercial operation at the Vulcan facility and full product qualification.

    A Bigger Porsche Crossover Is Coming

    The midsize Cayenne is currently the luxury marque's biggest car, but Porsche reportedly won't stop there.


    Erik Shilling

    Today 10:26AM


    Automotive News reports this morning that a big new Porsche crossover/SUV thing is on its way, longer and wider than the Cayenne.


    "The company — famed for its sports cars and, more recently, sporty crossovers — is developing a vehicle that is larger, longer and wider than the Cayenne midsize crossover, the brand’s biggest nameplate now, according to U.S. dealers who were shown a rendering of the vehicle at a meeting here last week.

    “It’s a new style of vehicle that is part sedan, part crossover,” said one dealer, describing it as having a “rakish” design.

    A spokesman for Porsche Cars North America said the company won’t comment or speculate on specific future models, but he said the automaker has become “very open in sharing ideas under an initiative — Porsche Unseen — the majority of which don’t make it beyond the ideas stage” but serve as an inspiration.

    “We’re grateful for such creativity within our business, as we’re continually exploring new opportunities and where we might compete in the future,” the spokesman said. “Whether these go any further than renderings and ideas to make it to the production stage — let alone how they will be powered or configured — is undecided.”

    The new vehicle is slated to arrive in the second half of the decade and could offer three rows — a first for a Porsche.

    “It’s very un-Porsche-like,” another dealer familiar with the vehicle said. “It has a flat rear design; it’s not anything like the Macan and Cayenne.”

    While Porsche did not disclose details of the vehicle’s powertrain, dealers expect it to be a plug-in hybrid at launch. A battery-powered vehicle could follow."


    I appreciate that Automotive News quotes a Porsche spokesman saying the project is completely up in the air before ignoring that and saying that the car is definitely happening. Automotive News also says that the bigger SUV/crossover is aimed at younger buyers, since, apparently, the Cayenne is too small for people with children. I don’t really buy that, though, because it isn’t, and I suspect that, instead, younger people simply can’t afford new Porsches.





    Adesso aspettiamo Maserati.....>:) :mrgreen:





    Anyway, there is also this bit of news about the Boxster and Cayman:


    "The midengine Cayman coupe and Boxster convertible will go all-electric around 2025, dealers were told.

    The front-end design of the Boxster EV is similar to that of the Taycan electric fastback, while the rear borrows the full-width taillight design from the Taycan, according to dealers who were shown the convertible.

    “The car looks stunning,” a dealer said. “It looks really sporty-looking.”


    One of the last gas-powered Boxsters is going to be a hell of a good deal on the used market in 10 years, I humbly predict.

    Non mi è mai piaciuta la maniglia interno porta orizzontale.
    Quella verticali la trovo più comoda e elegante.
    Mi piacerebbe sentire questo impianto Sonus Faber.
    Credo che sia la prima collaborare con il mondo auto della casa italiana.


    E' un'impianto modulare sviluppato da Sonus in stretta collaborazione con Maser. La casa italiana ne avrà l'esclusiva per un tot di tempo che non conosco. Poi lo stesso sarà offerto anche ad altre case/gruppi.

    tranne che in Italia, specie in nord america, qualunque auto italiana tranne Ferrari, è considerata un cesso o quasi...


    Fix it again tony è ancora sulla bocca di molti e le Maserati sono considerate delle Chrysler/Jeep rimarchiate da tanti...


    si spera migliori la situazione ma questo è


    Anche le Ferrari sono considerate dei cessi ma dipende sempre da CHI sono valutate come tali. E' il CHI che è importante...

    Domanda, ma 'sti transatlantici rimangono negli USA e se sì, sono già in vendita?


    Fatemi sapere così in caso sposto anche questo thread :)

    Si, sono in vendita e non sono riservati al NA ma vanno anche in Cina e Medio Oriente.

    October 19, 2021 02:40 AM UPDATED 2 HOURS AGO


    Stellantis, Samsung SDI said to agree joint EV battery deal for N. America

    Companies plan to build a factory in the U.S., report says



    SEOUL -- Stellantis and South Korean battery maker Samsung SDI have agreed to jointly produce electric-vehicle batteries for the North American market, a person familiar with the matter said.

    "The two companies (Samsung SDI and Stellantis) have struck a MOU (memorandum of understanding) to produce EV batteries for North America," the person with knowledge of the matter told Reuters on Tuesday.

    The source spoke of condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the matter.

    The person said the location of the battery joint venture is under review and will be announced later.

    South Korea's Yonhap news agency earlier reported that the two companies plan to build a factory in the United States, citing industry sources.

    Samsung SDI and Stellantis did not have immediate comment when reached by Reuters.

    Qui dice che non sarà ancora chiuso, sicuramente in prospettiva gli troveranno un'altra funzione perché non ha senso con Mirafiori vicino. Comunque nell'articolo si dice una cosa importantissima. Cioè il ritorno di tutta la produzione 500 a Mirafiori. Sono credo più di 100mila auto prodotte che tornano in Italia.


    Cioè crysler Dodge jeep useranno la 4 generazione e Alfa e Maserati la vecchia? Andiamo bene.


    Mettiamola così, per semplificare: da sempre (ed anche in futuro con la quarta generazione), ossia da quando Fiat ha acquisito Chrysler, il ramo americano del gruppo produce su licenza gli ZF 8HP limitatamente a quelli di "basso" e "medio" livello. Tutti quelli di "alto" livello sono forniti direttamente da ZF. I livelli suddetti si distinguono essenzialmente (ma non esclusivamente) in termini di coppia gestibile. Quindi, in soldoni, tutti gli ZF usati dal ramo italiano e da quello americano, limitatamente in quest'ultimo caso ai modelli top di gamma (tipo Trackhawk, Hellcat et similia), non sono prodotti in Indiana ma vengono direttamente dalla casa madre.

  8. Senza vergogna ! 🤣 Perché non parla di casi analoghi (ed alcuni ben più gravi...) avvenuti a più o meno stretto giro di posta che hanno visto decisioni diametralmente opposte ? I teleutenti della F1 s'incazzano per lo stesso motivo per cui s'incazzano da mille mila anni i tifosi di calcio: assenza della benché minima uniformità di giudizio. 




    P.S.: comunque i tifosi di corse di vecchia data sanno fin troppo bene che Pirro ce l'ha a morte con la Ferrari per il semplice motivo che il genio ebbe la bella idea di ammetterlo candidamente anni fa nel corso di un'intervista....L'unica funzione che meriterebbe di avere questa intervista, se fosse su carta stampata, sarebbe quella di carta da culo e sarebbe anche un uso fin troppo nobile della medesima.
