“In our first quarter since the Merger, Stellantis posted strong Q1 2021 revenues with the diverse brand portfolio driving increased volumes, positive pricing and improved product mix, despite the headwinds from the global semiconductor crisis.” - Richard Palmer, Stellantis CFO
Consolidated shipments(4) of 1,567 thousand on a pro forma basis(1), up 11%, reflecting strong consumer demand and retail mix, as well as the impact of COVID-related temporary production suspensions in Q1 2020, partially offset by Q1 2021 production losses due to semiconductor shortages, representing a loss of ~11% of planned production, or ~190 thousand units, in the quarter. Limited visibility of full year semiconductor shortage impact, but expected that Q2 2021 will be worse than Q1 2021, with some improvement in H2 2021. Combined shipments(2) of 1,618 thousand on a pro forma basis(1), up 12%.
Stellantis Q1 2021 Net revenues of €37.0 billion on a pro forma basis(1), compared to €32.4 billion in Q1 2020 on a pro forma basis(1), primarily due to higher overall volumes, positive net pricing, improved market mix, mainly in North America and Enlarged Europe, as well as favorable vehicle mix, partially offset by negative foreign exchange translation effects.
Commercial launch of all-new Opel Mokka began in March 2021 to European consumers, representing a return to the market after being discontinued in 2019. All-new Grand Wagoneer/Wagoneer and next generation Jeep Grand Cherokee production launches remain on track for late Q2 2021 and Q3 2021, respectively. All-new Grand Cherokee L (3-row) production commenced, with commercial launch in late Q2 2021.
Total inventory of 1,234 thousand units at the end of March 2021, including independent dealers inventory, compared to 1,256 thousand units at the end of December 2020(5). Dealer inventories down in all regions from yearend,
primarily due to the semiconductor shortage.
2021 Industry Outlook(6) for Group's key regions unchanged, with North America +8%, South America +20% and Enlarged Europe +10%. Middle East & Africa +15%, up from 3% previously, India & Asia Pacific +10%, up from 3% previously, and China +5%, unchanged.
2021 Guidance confirmed: Adjusted Operating Income Margin(7) of 5.5 - 7.5%; assumes no significant COVID-19 related lockdowns.

Basis of preparation: “Q1 2021” and “Q1 2020” represent results as reportable under IFRS, which include FCA from January 17, 2021, following the closure of the Merger; “Q1 2021 Pro Forma” and “Q1 2020 Pro Forma” are presented as if the Merger had occurred January 1, 2020. Refer to the section “Notes” for additional detail.
Reference should be made to the section “Safe Harbor Statement” included elsewhere within this document.
(1) Completed merger of Peugeot S.A. (“PSA”) with and into Fiat Chrysler Automobiles N.V. (“FCA”) on January 16, 2021 (“Merger”). On January 17, 2021, combined company was renamed Stellantis N.V. (“Stellantis” or “Group”). PSA was determined to be the acquirer for accounting purposes, therefore, the historical financial statements of Stellantis represent the continuing operations of PSA, which also reflect the loss of control and the classification of Faurecia S.E. (Faurecia) as a discontinued operation as of January 1, 2021 with the restatement of comparative periods. Acquisition date of business combination was January 17, 2021, therefore, results of FCA for the period January 1 -16, 2021 are excluded from Q1 2021 results unless otherwise stated. Q1 2021 Pro Forma results are presented as if the Merger had occurred on January 1, 2020 and include results of FCA for the period January 1 –16, 2021. Q1 2020 represents results of the continuing operations of PSA only and are not directly comparable to previously reported results of PSA and reflect accounting policies and reporting classifications of the Group. Q1 2020 Pro Forma results are presented as if the Merger had occurred on January 1, 2020. Amounts are subject to change, as the Group’s purchase price allocation (“PPA”) accounting has not been finalized.
