Stellantis has unveiled its new STLA Medium EV platform, which will provide the basis for a variety of electric cars, crossovers and SUVs – including the Peugeot e-3008 due in 2024.
Set for launch later this year, the new platform will be used to underpin up to two million vehicles per year and will enable a range of more than 435 miles with a Performance battery or 310 miles with a Standard pack.
Vehicles based on the platform will be available with front- or four-wheel drive with the addition of a second electric drive module at the rear, with battery electric vehicle (BEV) power output ranging from 218hp to 387hp.
The platform uses a 400-volt electric architecture anddrivers will be able to charge their battery from 20% to 80% in 27 minutes, a rate of 2.4 kWh per minute.
STLA Medium is the first of four global BEV platformsfrom Stellantis which include Small/Medium/Large/Frame versions.
They are also engineered to be future proof, modular and flexible in design, with provision for future battery chemistries, including nickel- and cobalt-free and solid-state batteries.

“The STLA Medium platform demonstrates the power of the global Stellantis technical community, delivering products that are hyper-focused on our customers and rewriting long-held assumptions of transportation as we drive for carbon net zero by 2038.”
