Costs increase due to UAW strike, Stellantis cancels participation in CES 2024

UAW Strike Results in Cost Increase, Stellantis Withdraws from CES 2024

【PhoneAuto News】As the strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) against Detroit automakers enters its second month, it not only brings serious impact to the car companies but also indirectly affects some major exhibitions. Stellantis, which has been affected by the strike, announced that it will not participate in the 2024 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES 2024) in Las Vegas, emphasizing the main reason for canceling its participation in the event.


In a press release issued today, Stellantis issued the following statement: “Due to the ongoing strike by the United Auto Workers (UAW) against Stellantis, which has caused the company’s costs to soar, the company has decided to cancel its plans to exhibit and demonstrate at CES 2024 in Las Vegas, Nevada, scheduled for January 2024.”

Stellantis also stated that it is implementing comprehensive measures to mitigate the financial impact of the strike and protect its capital, but it did not further explain the specific content of these measures. Therefore, it is still unclear whether other car events, such as the SEMA Show (Specialty Equipment Market Association Show) and the Los Angeles Auto Show, will also be affected by the strike. The media have consulted officials from Stellantis, but they have not yet responded.

However, based on Stellantis’ previous actions, it should still participate in SEMA Show, which will open on October 31. Not long ago, the Dodge and RAM brands under the Stellantis Group released teaser images of modified cars, seemingly warming up for new products. As for the Los Angeles Auto Show, which will be held on November 17, Ram, Dodge, Jeep, Fiat, and Chrysler, all under the Stellantis umbrella, have been exhibitors in previous years.
