All-Electric Next-Generation Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio Coming Soon

Both will be based on Stellantis’ STLA large platform, like the new Dodge Charger


Alfa Romeo has dropped hints about its two current vehicles, the sublime Giulia and handsome Stelvio, going all-electric for a while now. In fact, a little over a year ago, the Italian automaker teased the possibility of a 1,000 hp version of one of the most underrated premium sedans as it switches from petrol to electrons.

The recent reveal of the ultra-cool Dodge Charger Daytona has opened the floodgates to speculation as to what the next Alfas may be based on in terms of EV technology. The Dodge is significant as it will ride on the Stellantis STLA large platform, feature 400V electrical, and put out 670 hp for some serious performance.

 

Now, while the Giulia and Stelvio will share the platform, Autocar states that both will use 800V electricals which should not only reduce weight thanks to thinner wiring and shorten charging times but generate significantly more power. This will potentially mean 2.0-second sprint times to 100 km/h from a standstill. This kind of performance will work nicely for the next Quadrifoglio versions.

It had been reported that the new electric Giulia would come first, as early as 2025, but it seems as though the Stelvio will launch first for next year followed by the sedan in 2026. Between now and then, the Milano is expected to break cover.
