Colin-on-Cars – New technologies on display

Wild and wacky; clever and useful or just plain futuristic. These are the primary characteristics of the annual Consumer Electronics Show (CES), held in Las Vegas, Nevada every January.

This year the show starts on January 5 and the Stellantis Group is making a major effort to highlight the technology that powers Stellantis’ global drive to deliver breakthrough technologies and customer-centric solutions that power the future of its 14 brands.


“Vehicles are an integral part of people’s digital lives and the future of mobility is fueled by technology,” says Carlos Tavares, Stellantis CEO. “Electrification, with our 30 electrified models available including fuel cell vans, connectivity and autonomy are all important facets of that future but each cannot stand alone. Our creativity, engineering and innovative partnerships are accelerating our drive to build the best and most sustainable mobility for our customers.”
