Stellantis has announced that it will increase the production capacity of its electric drive modules (EDMs) by strengthening production in Szentgotthard, Hungary, from late 2026.

The €103 million ($110 million / £87 million) investment in the Szentgotthard facility, including grants and contributions from the Hungarian government, represents the corporation’s latest commitment to transforming its existing facilities to accelerate its electrified future. Here, Stellantis has leveraged its facilities in Tremery-Metz, France, and Kokomo, IN, USA, to support EDM production. In 2024, its Mirafiori complex in Italy will increase production of next-generation electrified dual-clutch transmissions (eDCTs) for hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles across the Stellantis brand portfolio.

EDMs produced at Szentgotthard will be used in vehicles built on an upcoming BEV-centric STLA platform, with production housed in existing buildings at the plant. New work related to electric drive production will include machining of certain key components, as well as final assembly and testing of 3-in-1 EDMs that combine the electric motor, reduction gearset and inverter into a single unit.

Today, the plant currently produces 1.2-liter turbocharged three-cylinder and 1.6-liter four-cylinder internal combustion engines used in a variety of Stellantis brand vehicles. Stellantis confirmed that its employees will undergo training to support the machining and assembly requirements of EDM production.
