According to Jean-Philippe Imparato, the new boss of Alfa Romeo, the future models of the Italian brand will all be electrified, ie hybrid or electric.
The constraints imposed on manufacturers in terms of CO emissions2 by the European Union are severe: brands must in fact reduce their emissions by 60% by 2030. This is how we are witnessing a profound change in the market, with a multiplication of electrified models, that is to say hybrid or electric.
While some manufacturers have already chosen to make a radical transition to all-electric, Alfa Romeo wishes to move gradually towards hybrid and plug-in hybrid as an alternative to 100% thermal engines, while offering 100% electric versions. According to Jean-Philippe Imparato, the new boss of Alfa Romeo, the massive electrification of the brand’s models is the only possible response to meet new European constraints.
The brand’s future models in Biscione will all offer at least one electrified powertrain, starting with the brand’s future compact SUV: the Alfa Romeo Tonale, which should be unveiled in 2022, with a little delay on forecasts, but Imparato wants the model to be perfected in order to be perfectly competitive in an increasingly supplied SUV market.
A new Alfa Romeo Giulietta is also on the program, and this will share the platform of the new Peugeot 308, while the sports versions badged Quadrifoglio will still be there, but here too, will have to make a shift towards electrification. And still according to Jean-Philippe Imparato, the Italian firm of the Stellantis group is not opposed to the idea of seeing a sports coupe return to its range, in the spirit of the Brera and the GT.
