Auburn Hills, Mich. - The California Framework Agreement was developed secretly with some competitors, in direct violation of the California Administrative Procedure Act. We are taking this action to relieve Stellantis of the competitive disadvantages arising from our continuing exclusion and to preserve our ability to best serve our customers by fairly allocating our products to all states.

We strongly support emissions reduction to benefit the environment, evidenced by our Dare Forward strategic plan. However, our ability to achieve this vision is severely threatened by the current double standard, which also destabilizes our production schedules, the livelihoods of our 56,000 U.S. employees, and the thousands of spinoff jobs generated by our operations.
