The fate of Alfa Romeo seems to be totally electrified. After the quick clarifications made during the EV Day on the Alfa e-Romeo claim, it seems that the Biscione has really embarked on the path of total transition as did most of the other brands in the group. Stellantis. During the conference call for the presentation of the half-year data, Carlos Tavares showed some slides showing the objectives set for the Arese car manufacturer: from 2027 Alfa Romeo will present only electric cars, a choice that will be declined in most of the main markets of the ‘Europe, China and North America.
An epochal turning point for the historic Italian brand that between 2023 and 2024 should greet the arrival of the first full electric, the B-SUV that should respond to the name of Alfa Romeo Palade and that it will be produced in Poland, at the Tychy plant, the same production site that will also assemble two other new B segment models, one for the Fiat brand and one for Jeep. Before the arrival of the first BEV, however, Alfa will look into electrification with Tonal, expected at the final launch on the market in mid-2022. The second SUV of the brand will have a plug-in hybrid version, the rechargeable hybrid, which will allow a full electric range of more than 50 km.
After the numerous postponements related to various issues, including the will of the CEO Jean Philippe Imparato to have a model that could be truly competitive, with a powertrain capable of rivaling the main models in the segment, the official debut of the production model should materialize in September, when the Biscione will also present the new industrial plan. A plan that at this point could contain this electrification target, anticipated by Stellantis. A decision in line with the group’s transition objectives which, however, will not leave fans indifferent, who have long been disappointed by the direction taken by the brand.
