Ford Reorganization Panned By Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares

Ford made waves last week when it announced that it was splitting its business into two separate entities – Model e, which will focus on the EV side of its business, and Ford Blue, which is centered around ICE-powered vehicles. Most applauded this move, seeing it as an important first step toward competing with the likes of Tesla, though Wall Street does have some concerns about Ford’s goals related to the split. Regardless, frequent FoMoCo critic and Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares isn’t as impressed by the Ford reorganization plan, as he recently explained to The Detroit News.

Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares Breaks Down the True Cost of All Its New EVs

Did you know Stellantis sells 34 electrified vehicles globally now? Before Stellantis, its group of automakers were lagging behind the EV competition.

Nevertheless, his comments are as true as the fairytales written by Hans Christian Andersen, or the folktales told by the Grimm Brothers.

'Carlos Tavares is the heavyweight champion of the automotive world'

The biggest, brightest, most respected and convincing motor industry CEO I’ve met in recent years? Carlos Tavares. Despite his gentle demeanour, nutty professor(ish) grin and effortless approach to working life, he’s the heavyweight champion of the automotive world. So fighting-fit and tactically aware is he that rival bosses can at best only consider themselves contenders, with little chance of snatching the title from him anytime soon.
