Alfa Romeo Giulia EV to be launched in 2024 – Report [Update]

Update: ‘Specifications’ section updated.

Stellantis is not leaving behind its less-prominent brands in transitioning to EVs. For Alfa Romeo, the zero-emission journey begins in 2024. The first Alfa Romeo EV is due in 2024, and a new report from British magazine CAR suggests that it would be Alfa Romeo Giulia EV.

Jean-Philippe Imparato, the new CEO of Alfa Romeo, has said that the company is open to the idea of launching the next-gen Giulia as an electric vehicle. Imparato was talking about the possibility of launching the Quadrofoglio variant of all models with an electric powertrain. He indicated that a Giulia QV EV would make sense only if it can deliver the right amount of performance.

The Alfa Romeo Giulia EV would ride on either the STLA Medium platform or the STLA Large platform. Harald Wester, Chief Engineering Officer, Stellantis, confirmed that Alfa Romeo EVs in the future would use the Medium, but CAR Magazine is siding with Alfa using the Large configuration.

STLA Medium platform EVs will come with 87-104 kWh battery packs that provide a range of 700 km (435 miles). Most models could get 125-180 kW powertrains, but some could sport more capable powertrains that generate 150-330 kW. Meanwhile, the STLA Large models will measure 4.7-5.4 metres long and 1.9-2.03 metres wide. They would sport 101-118 kWh batteries, with a range of up to 800 km (500 miles).

Alfa Romeo Giulia EV to coexist with PHEV version

The Giulia EV would not mark the end of the internal combustion variants. The company will offer the next-gen Giulia in plug-in hybrid and pure electric variants, with the former targeted at customers in countries not ready to adopt EVs on a mass scale. In 2027, Stellantis wants Alfa Romeo to attain the status of a 100% EV brand in Europe, North America, and China. The company would add models to the lineup in 2025 and 2026, with Imparato terming them “big launches.”

Stellantis has scheduled an event to disclose a new long-term strategy on 1 March 2022. That’s where it could reveal the all-electric Alfa Romeo models coming to the market in the next five years.
