Dye, who just finished his term as chairman of the Stellantis National Dealer Council, said the merger brought stability during the pandemic and charted a path on EVs.
“It’s been two years being with Stellantis. When you compare it to the amount of time we’ve been with COVID, I think the additional resources certainly, if nothing else, gave some comfort and provided stability to what could have been a very uncertain future,” said Dye, who owns Daytona Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep-Ram and Maserati-Alfa Romeo of Daytona in Florida. “That was a comfort to a lot of us, I think, certainly in the last several months. Something that you would have to count as a benefit to the Stellantis relationship would be their knowledge and their technology as we work on the addition of the EV vehicles.”
