Stellantis stops car transports to and from Russia.

Stellantis, the maker of Jeep, Fiat and Peugeot vehicles, has halted car exports from Russia and vehicle imports to the country, the company said Thursday.

The carmaker operates a small factory in partnership with Mitsubishi in Kaluga, southwest of Moscow. The factory employs approximately 2,700 people and produces small vans that Stellantis exports to other European countries.

A week ago, the carmaker’s chief executive, Carlos Tavares, hinted that the plant may have to stop production. “Operations will stop because there are simply no more parts,” he said in a video conference.

Stellantis, headquartered in Amsterdam, was created from a merger of Fiat Chrysler and Peugeot. It makes vehicles under 14 brand names, including Ram, Chrysler, Maserati, Opel and Citroën.
