- To build long-wheelbase iterations of the Stelvio and Giulia
- New Giulietta hatchback will have hybrid and electric options
- Two new SUVs planned, one below Stelvio and one flagship SUV
- Revive the Alfa-Romeo 8C sportscar and build the all-new GTV sportscar
Fiat-Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has revealed mission 2022 for their Italian brand, Alfa Romeo. Buoyed by the warm response to the luxury sedan, the Guilia, and their first-ever SUV, the Stelvio, brand Alfa-Romeo seeks to achieve 4 lakh sales by the year 2022.
First up, Alfa-Romeo will build hybrid as well as electric powertrains to power their entire line-up, including the new models to be built. Also, all the existing models will undergo a full revamp before 2022 which includes the Giulietta hatch, the Giulia and the Stelvio. After finding acceptance in the Chinese market, long-wheel base versions of the two premium cars will be built which might ultimately make their way to other markets, depending upon the demand.
The Mito hatchback has reached the end of its life-cycle and will not be replaced. While the new Giulietta hatchback will be an entry-level Alfa, it will be joined by an all-new compact SUV based on the same platform. The second SUV being planned will be the flagship Alfa-Romeo SUV positioned higher than the Stelvio. With Alfa’s DNA underneath, it might not be a seven-seater, but it is too early to deny any possibilities.
Finally, the sportscars – the thing for which Alfa Romeo is revered for across the world. The maverick Alfa-Romeo 8C will be revived and will get a brand new carbon-fibre chassis and a twin-turbo mid-engine setup that pumps more than 700 horsepower.
Also, the GTV moniker will be revived. To get Alfa’s famed 50-50 weight distribution, the GTV (Grand Turismo Veloce) will be an all-wheel drive, 600bhp grand tourer with two rows of seats.
With two new SUVs, two new sportscars, new-generation of the hatchback and revamps of the Giulia and the Stelvio, Alfa has seven products in the pipeline. With everything going as planned, the Italian car maker aims to have presence in 71 per cent of the market by 2022 to aid its 4 lakh car-sales goal after the 1.07 lakh cars sold in 2017.
