Stellantis’ strategy seems to be shifting towards repositioning premium brands to differentiate itself from Alfa Romeo of Maserati. Igor Albera of Fim Cisl raised concerns about the performance of the electric 500 and the implications for employment if Maserati experiences further delays: “Mirafiori runs the electric 500, but the car has not been doing well in the market lately.
