The plant will produce 400,000 vehicles per year and will employ 2,000 people.

Stellantis bets on Morocco. The group led by Carlos Tavares has now announced an investment of 300 million euros in its Kenitra plant to triple manufacturing capacity to 400,000 vehicles per year and create 2,000 new regional employees.
“Stelantis' global ambition will benefit from rapid development in the Middle East and Africa region, which aims to help Stellantis build the third engine besides North America and Europe,” Tavares added.

In addition to the 400,000 cars annually, the plant will produce 50,000 Citroën Ami and Opel Rocks-e electric microcars.
Stellantis further stated that the installation is an energy optimization model with low energy consumption per vehicle produced (425 KWh/vehicle). It will soon access renewable energies, supported by the Moroccan national strategy for energy transition and sustainable development.

«We are delighted to announce today a new important milestone in the journey of our industrial plant in Kénitra. In conjunction with the Moroccan Ministry of Industry and Commerce,” said M. Samir Cherfan, chief operating officer of Stellantis Middle East and Africa, in a statement issued by the company.
