Stellantis revealed the STLA Large Platform today, which will underlie eight new cars from its diverse portfolio between this year and 2026. Dodge and Jeep will launch first in North America, followed by Alfa Romeo, Chrysler, and Maserati.
The STLA Large Platform will be offered in both 400- and 800-volt topologies, and it is designed with flexibility at its core. Vehicles based on it can range in length from 4,765 mm to 5,126 mm, width from 1,897 mm to 2,029 mm, and wheelbase from 2,870 mm to 3,076 mm.
Ground clearance options range from 140 mm to 287 mm, providing similar flexibility. The maximum tire diameter for cars using STLA Large is an impressive 32″.
STLA Large originally features battery pack configurations ranging from 85 to 118 kWh. The 800-volt battery pack can recharge up to 4.5 kWh per minute. The maximum target range for vehicles employing the platform at first is 800 kilometers.
The initial generation of propulsion components has the capacity to generate acceleration ranging from 0 to 100 km/h in two seconds. Front, rear, and all-wheel drive will be available, and Stellantis claims the new platform has “the potential to carry extreme power that will outperform any of the existing Hellcat V-8s”.
The new platform, along with STLA Small, STLA Medium, and STLA Frame, will help Stellantis achieve its electrification ambitions in the coming years. All of these are built and engineered with interchangeable battery cell chemistry, electric drive modules, power inverters, and software control to ensure long-term viability.
STLA Large enables Stellantis‘ next-generation electrical and software-defined car technologies, including STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit, and STLA AutoDrive. Stellantis is investing €50 billion in electrification over the next decade, with the goal of selling exclusively pure all-electric passenger car EVs in Europe by 2030 and 50% passenger car and light-duty truck EVs in the United States by the same year. The company hopes to have 48 EVs available in various markets by the end of the year.
