The company has received permission from its parent company, Stellantis, to comprehensively update both the Giulia four-door and Stelvio CUV models, giving them another lease of life until R&D is ready for the next iterations. They also introduced the compact all-wheel drive Tonale, the first new model in many years (six years, to be exact), and the first Alfa Romeo ever with hybrid powertrains.
The Dodge Hornet’s cousin seconds it, and both can be equipped with an optional plug-in hybrid system in addition to the mild hybrid system used in the 1.5-liter Firefly Turbo engine. However, that was not all. Instead, Stellantis finally allowed Alfa Romeo a proper halo car – reviving the iconic 33 sports car as the Alfa Romeo 33 Stradale, a proper supercar with either the Quadrifoglio’s 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 or the all-wheel-drive three-cylinder. Electric option.
Of course, Alfa Romeo fans are probably hoping this isn’t the end, and the Italian automaker won’t need another half-decade before introducing another new model. The rumors are hopeful too, and reports are actively discussing all sorts of possibilities, including a potential revival of the compact hatchback Giulietta.
However, the fantasy field of digital automotive content creators may seem that the embedded sector is a bit crowded, so they try to find alternative solutions. For example, Kleber Silva, a virtual artist based in Brazil known as KDesign AG On social media, she decided to make a CGI visualization of the upcoming Alfa-an Eve! But before you jump in and say the Giulia Quadrifoglio EV competes with the Tesla Model S Plaid, the pixel expert opted for a much simpler solution.
Stellantis owns no fewer than 14 brands and has a wide range of compact, four-wheel drive SUVs ice And EV power under the hood. Think of the Peugeot 2008, Opel Mokka and DS 3 Crossback, as well as the all-new Fiat 600e and Jeep Avenger. They all share a common theme – you can get them with the classic petrol or diesel engine but also with the advanced 154bhp and 54bhp engines.kilowatt hours EV powertrain. It is clear that where there are five, there is also room for a sixth.
As such, the pixel expert decided to “explore the electric future of Alfa Romeo with a concept based” on the Jeep Avenger and Fiat 600e. Using the latter as a base for the initial CGI operations, the author then overlaid “modern touches and elements from the latest Alpha models to create a compact electro-dynamic (sub)engine” SUVs“With distinctive Alfa Romeo styling and an electric powertrain shared from the 2008, Mokka, DS 3 Crossback, Avenger and 600e, this small electric SUV will be easy to use – at least in fantasy land.
