Stellantis, Foxconn form 50:50 JV to make semiconductors for auto industry

Stellantis and Foxconn have established a 50:50 JV SiliconAuto to design and sell semiconductors for the auto industry from 2026. The joint venture is the product of a December 2021 agreement between Stellantis and Foxconn, to develop a family of semiconductors for automotive applications.

SiliconAuto will provide customers an auto industry-centric source of semiconductors for the growing number of computer-controlled features and modules, particularly those needed for electric vehicles.

“Stellantis will benefit from a robust supply of essential components, which is critical to fueling the rapid, software-defined transformation of our products,” said Stellantis CTO  Ned Curic. “Our goal is to build vehicles that seamlessly connect with our customers’ daily lives and deliver class-leading capabilities years after they leave the assembly line. With this joint venture, we can create purpose-built innovations with an efficient partnership.”

“We look forward to a future of extraordinary EV mobility underpinned by the vertical integration capabilities and resources SiliconAuto secures for our partners,” said Foxconn Chief Product Officer Jerry Hsiao. “The collaborative energy will propel our customers to become more competitive.”

SiliconAuto will be headquartered in the Netherlands. The management team includes executives from both founding partners. Stellantis will provide input to SiliconAuto to enable and deliver capabilities needed by future battery electric vehicles and multi-energy vehicle platforms. 

In addition to SiliconAuto, Stellantis and Foxconn have the Mobile Drive joint venture focused on developing smart cockpits enabled by consumer electronics, human-machine interfaces and services.
