Alfa Romeo is developing a new all-electric SUV

In 2023, there were rumors about a new Alfa Romeo car with which the Italian manufacturer would enter the race with currently strong competition such as the Porche Cayenne or the Mercedes EQE SUV. A few days ago it was confirmed by the head of Alfa Romeo, Jean-Philippe Imparato, and the new SUV should reach the market in 2027.

Jean-Phlippe said that the company gives more chances to the SUV model than to the hatchback, but everything will depend on the sales of this type of vehicle in Europe, the potential of the Asian market, especially China, and the development of electrification in North America.

“The question is whether we will increase the size, and for me the answer is yes. We have to go to a bigger model. We have everything, the platform, the engines and the software. We can push the limits to the maximum, and I have some design sketches that are very good. If I premium and I’m not in the E-segment, what should I do?”

Alfa Romeo currently offers three SUV models: Junior, Tonale and Stelvio, and according to some rumors, the new SUV should be built on the STLA Large platform from Stellantis. However, what we know for sure for now is that the car will have a striking design, a centrally positioned license plate holder, and that the front grill will be taken from the Scudetto model.

Also, it should be noted that the Italian manufacturer previously announced several special limited models such as the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, and the return of some of the old models such as the GTV or roadster Duetto is also planned.
