Almost 6 months after the launch of STLA Mediumthe Stellar revealed her STLA Large platformon which they will be based electric, hybrid and purely thermal vehicles in the D and E segments.
Having been constructed basically for EVswill offer electric vehicles range 800 km (s.s. for sedans), batteries energy capacity up to 118 kWhfast charging capabilities 4.5 kWh per minute for 800V batteries (there will also be a voltage of 400V), but also top performance.
Indicatively, he informed that acceleration 0-100 km/h will be achieved in times with “central value” the 2.0 sec!
The basic specifications of the vehicles it will be able to manufacture are as follows:
- Vehicle length: 4.764 mm – 5.126 mm
- Width: 1.897 mm – 2.030 mm
- Wheelbase: 2.870 mm – 3.075 mm
- Distance from the ground: 140 mm – 288 mm
- Battery energy capacity: 85 kWh – 118 kWh
The flexibility of the platform will be such as to allow construction wide range of carsfrom sedans to crossovers and SUVs, for global markets. Initially it will be used in North America from the Jeeps and Dodgesto then follow and other brands of the Groupsuch as Alfa Romeo, Chrysler and Maserati. In space 2024 to 2026 are planned 8 model launches.
The flexibility of STLA Large is such that it allows many types of vehicles as well as drive systems and is expected to be a “weapon” for the spread of electrification in North America, as stated by Stellantis CEO, Carlos Tavares.
However except on the other side of the Atlantic, it will installed in several factories in Europe and will be able to produce and thermal cars, ICE and hybrids, which will be able to offer from top performance and luxury to excellent off-road abilities.
Utilizing high strength materials, the platform will build vehicles high rigiditywhile the packaging will be such that the available space is maximized for passengers and luggage. In addition, all systems, such as for example the heating and cooling of the cabin but also the brake assistwill be designed in such a way that to reduce consumption in favor of autonomy.
The electric models that will arise will be able to have traffic on frontthem back or to all wheelswhile the performance of the electric motors will be able to upgraded during their lifetimethrough Over-the-air software updates. In addition, there will be a possibility of utilization different suspension types, limited slip differentials, with the aim of increasing performance and autonomy. Stellantis, in fact, “promises” numbers higher than the existing ones V8 Hellcat engineswithout, however, revealing specific values power.
Although the electromobility is the main axis, STLA Large will be able to manufacture equally efficient purely thermal and hybrid modelswith engines mounted on transverse and longitudinal axle, with any type of drive (FWD/RWD/AWD).
From summer of 2021η Stellantis has announced four electric platforms: STLA Small, STLA Medium, STLA Large and STLA Frame. Large, just introduced, argues next generation electric vehicles to be defined by software, through technology architectures STLA Brain, STLA SmartCockpit and STLA AutoDrive. In addition, he is going to invest more than 50 billion euros the next decade in the field of electric mobility.
