The memorandum of understanding will kick off studies of increasing Stellantis’ “industrial footprint” in Egypt, continuing a 50-year tradition. Jeep has long assembled vehicles in Egypt, including one designed for governments and NGOs. Vehicles made in Egypt are sold in other countries, including neighboring Israel, where Stellantis as a whole has an 8.9% market share—up by 1.3 points over last year.
