There The first electric Alfa Romeo will arrive in 2024, and indeed it will be a compact SUV originally named Brennero that will share many features with the Jeep Avenger, which in turn was the revolutionary brand’s first electric vehicle.
Alfa itself has confirmed the launch of its next car with a social campaign that asks Followers guess the name a sporty and revolutionary city car. We know it won’t be Brennero, because in the presentation at Tonale we were informed that the next names will not continue the Alpine pass style, but that they will have a “historic” name. Is it the new Giulietta or the return of the MiTo?
What do we know about the new Alfa?
The new car will have several competitors, arriving in the period there is demand for compact and electric SUVs/crossovers. Its closest relative is the Jeep Avenger, which can also use two engines in certain markets, such as the Italian one, except that from 2027 it will be made only with batteries, given that from that year the Milanese house will only produce. electrical models. Other relatives, however, are many models from the old PSA side of the Stellantis, including the Peugeot 2008, DS 3 and Opel Mokka, all born on the e-CMP platform today updated in the Small STLA.
Among the main competitors, however, there is certainly the new Volvo EX30, released worldwide these days in Milan, the birthplace of Alfa, its distant cousin the Smart #1, along with the Renault Mégane E-Tech Electric. Both cars, like the Avenger, are between 4.2 and 4.4 meters long and have a range of 420 to 480 km. The Alfa itself should have a 156 HP electric motor and a 54 kWh battery for a range of 400 km.
The price range will also be the same: The Volvo EX30 starts at €36,000 and is currently the smallest and cheapest Volvo in the range. There The Avenger starts at €26,900 on petrol and €37,900 in an electronic version; The Mégane starts at €37,100 while the Smart #1 starts at €40,640. Among all these examples, Alfa’s small SUV should be the most availableplacing itself slightly below the Avenger: for this reason, the gasoline version can start from around € 22,000, and from € 32,000 in its battery-powered version, the only one available in most markets.
On the stylistic side, as the Tonale can present a modern design with many elements of the past, and Alfa in particular Executive Director Jean-Philippe Imparato hinted that it could take many cues from the original Giulietta. In addition, it is the model considered the most important in terms of sales: if the Tonale has already contributed itself, in all three of its engines, to increasing the sales of the brand, this small SUV has the task of doing even better, by returning the Alfa. at pre-covid levels.
The car will be available from June 2024.
