Stellantis will produce the Fiat Panda minicar at its Pomigliano plant in southern Italy until 2026, metal workers unions said after the automaker met workers' representatives.
The Panda's production extension in Pomigliano will add to output of the new Alfa Romeo Tonale SUV, which is about to start production at the plant.
Stellantis, which owns the Fiat and Alfa Romeo brands, said a deal to build a battery plant in Italy for electric vehicles was imminent, unions said after the meeting on Thursday.
Stellantis, which was created just over a year ago by the merger of Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and PSA Group, has until now not given an end date for the Panda.
Fiat sold nearly 130,000 Pandas in Europe last year, according to JATO Dynamics market researcher.
