Stellantis announced its intention to invest a colossal $155 million in three plants located in Kokomo, Indiana, in order to manufacture advanced electric drive modules (EDM) that will contribute to powering future electric vehicles and promoting the sale of 50% battery electric vehicles in the United States by 2030. The Kokomo-built EDM, which will be integrated into STLA Large and STLA Frame platforms, comprises three principal constituents: the electric motor, transmission, and power electronics which are all condensed into a solitary module that will yield better performance and a competitive cost. As a result of the optimized efficiency of the fresh EDM, each platform will have a driving range of up to 500 miles.
500 miles will certainly ease people’s range anxiety. Range will continue to improve as battery development and technology improve. You are right though, the other piece of that is improving the charging experience. We’ll get there.

The 500 mileage range is just what the EV industry needs. This should increase sales of EV vehicles as long as the charge time is not excessive.
