Stellantis NV is investing 100 million pounds ($138.4 million) in its Vauxhall brand's manufacturing plant at Ellesmere Port, England to focus the site's production on all-electric vehicles.

The car maker said Tuesday that the site will become its first plant dedicated to the production of battery-electric light commercial vehicle and passenger car models for its Vauxhall, Opel, Peugeot and Citroen brands from 2022.

Stellantis said its investment in the plant was supported by the U.K. government, and that it is also reviewing a potential additional investment at the site.

The car maker said the investment "will leverage the performance improvement actions that have been made possible thanks to a co-building process between the company, the Unite Union and based on the workforce's drive to transform their plant."
