Electric Panda: release postponed after 2030

The stay of the internal combustion engine Panda on the automotive market has been extended until 2030, this means that we will have to wait a while longer for the release of the electric Panda

There were some rumors going around recently that Stellantis intended to abandon Italy. To respond to these rumors, the CEO of Stellantis himself, Carlos Tavares, intervened. The administrator has indeed denied these rumors, replying that indeed, Stellantis wants to focus heavily on Italy. It's certainly not something to be surprised about, after all Stellantis' Italian customers number hundreds of thousands and abandoning one of the most loyal countries would be a really bad move. Just think about it Panda, which among other things continues to release new models, such as the brand new Pandina, named this way to distinguish itself from other larger models. But that's not all, in fact we consider the establishment of Pomigliano d'Arcowhich is one of Stellantis' strong points precisely for the production of Panda models.

There is still a long wait for the release of the electric Panda: still room for the internal combustion engine

Precisely considering the Pomigliano d'Arco plant, we remember that thanks to the team they managed to sell around 30,000 Panda specimens. This is more than overwhelming proof that Italians are still very fond of the brand. However, we will have to wait a few more years for the electric Panda. In fact, if it was initially expected that the internal combustion engine Pandas would end production in 2027, in the end Stellantis decided to postpone the end of production to 2030. They made this decision precisely to allow customers to save further on the costs of the electric motor, which today is not yet accessible to everyone. In fact, it is expected that it will become more accessible to the public by 2030. From then on, the Panda will be 100% electric.
