In an interview with Auto Express, Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato revealed a lot of details about the future of the company and electric vehicles. But the most interesting thing is that, despite the world’s insatiable appetite for SUVs, the Giulia sports sedan you will get another generation, and one that is completely electric.

Apparently the car will be built on the STLA Large platform, one of several electric vehicle architectures that Stellantis announced in July. Considering that there will be STLA Small and STLA Medium platforms, we are a bit surprised that Alfa opts for the large option, as the current one Giulia it is not particularly large. It could be that Alfa is aiming for a particularly long range from the next Giulia, and perhaps even more interior space. We present the range because the large platform is said to accept 101 kWh to 118 kWh of battery capacity and up to 500 miles of range. You may also be sharing the platform and development with the future. Stelvio, as does the current one with the Giorgio platform.

Imparato also talked a bit about the high-performance Quadrifoglio models. The company is definitely still open to them in the electric age, but only if they can make it work the way they want. It seems unlikely to be a problem for a couple of reasons. One, Imparato told him car Fast that the man who helped develop the Giulia Quadrifoglio GTA is on the team developing STLA Large. The other is that Stellantis has a large variety of engines planned. At the low end there will be 94 horsepower engines, but at the other end there will be 402 horsepower units. There should be a couple out there who find a good balance between raw power and finesse, especially when just one generates around 80% of the power of the current Quadrifoglio’s V6 biturbo.

Stellantis aims to have its 500-mile STLA Large platform cars, among others, ready by 2024. There seems to be a good chance that electric Alphas will start showing up at that point, as the brand plans to do so. fully electric by 2027. That will make it the first Stellantis brand to be fully electric.
