Alfa Romeo Going All-EV in 2027

Electric Alfas Coming

  • Alfa going all-in on EV in Europe, NA, and China

  • Will launch PHEV in next 24 months


Stellantis is switching another brand to offer only electric vehicles by the end of the decade. Alfa Romeo will join Fiat, Opel, Lancia, and DS, and will only offer EVs starting from 2027 in three major markets.

The announcement was part of the Stellantis investor presentation last week (via AutoNews). A slide showed that for Europe, North America, and China, Alfa Romeo would go all-EV in 2027. It’s not clear what vehicles that might leave them for other markets, but the three included regions are the largest for the brand.

Alfa and DS will make up the premium cluster out of the 12 Stellantis brands, and are already working together on future models and increasing their internal cooperation. DS will move to launching only new EVs from 2024, while Lancia will do the same from 2026. Fiat and Opel have already announced EV-only plans. Sometime between 2025 and 2030 for Fiat, by 2028 (in Europe) for Opel.

More EVs are coming from Stellantis in the nearer term as well. “Over the next 24 months you can expect no less than 11 pure EV launches,” Stellantis CEO Carlos Tavares said during the presentation. “They will add to the existing 11 BEVs [battery-electric vehicles] on sale,” he added.

10 PHEV models will be launched in the next 24 months including three Peugeots, two Opels, and one each from Citroen, DS, and, more importantly for our market, Alfa Romeo, Dodge, and Jeep.

It’s largely driven, as are other automakers, to keep ahead of the EU’s plan to require all cars sold from 2035 to be zero-emission. Jaguar will become all-EV by 2025, Ford (Europe) and Volvo expect the same by 2030, and Bentley and Audi are expected to be all EV by 2030 and 2033 respectively.
