Stellantis has a light commercial vehicle factory in Luton. This is where the Opel Vivaro, Citroën Jumpy, Fiat Scudo and Peugeot Expert are made.
Not everyone knows that Stellantis has a large plant that produces its cars in Luton. LCVs for the whole of Europe are offered here. They are then transported through channels and distributed among others in Poland. Stellantis is a leading supplier of commercial vehicles, also manufacturing them for Toyota.
Combustion engine versions of the Vauxhall Vivaro, Opel Vivaro, Citroën Jumpy, Citroën Dispatch, Fiat Scudo and Peugeot Expert are manufactured at the Luton plant. The plant’s production capacity is 100,000 cars per year. Luton now manufactures all Stellantis mid-size combustion LCVs for the UK and European markets, with the exception of Hordain in France, where similar powertrains are produced.
“I visited the UK this week for our regular business review with Stellantis’ internal teams. Despite the challenging market environment, Stellantis UK Managing Director Paul Willcox and his team are doing a great job and Vauxhall Motors Ltd continues to be the number one brand in electric in the UK light vehicle (LCV) market.” – said Uwe Hochgeschurtz. “Vivaro Electric is the e-LCV sales leader there, and last month the UK was the only major European country to increase its overall market share year on year.”
Stellantis management visits are a control element of the implementation of the Dare Forward program, related to, among others, cost reduction and greater work efficiency.
