- Alfa Romeo’s CEO has confirmed that the Giulia lineup will switch to an electric powertrain for 2025.
- Alfa expects the base version to produce 350 horsepower, the Veloce 800 horsepower and the Quadrifoglio more than 1,000 horsepower.
- The new Giulia will be produced on Stellantis Group’s STLA Large platform, with 800V, ultra-rapid charging and up to 500 miles of range.
Both the painfully beautiful Alfa Romeo Giulia and its sinister Quadrifoglio version will make the switch to the electric age. Alfa CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato made the rounds through European newsrooms last week and confirmed the future of the Giulia sedan. Most importantly, the Giulia nameplate will eschew the electrification switch and move to Stellantis Group’s upcoming EV STLA Large platform. The STLA Large platform is based on the Giorgio platform on which the Giulia is currently built. According to an interview Imperato gave to UK’s Top Gear, the electric Giulia will have up to 500 miles of range and will use an 800-volt architecture, allowing for fast-charging.
Unfortunately, it appears that the switch to electrification will spell the death of the steaming hot twin-turbo 2.9-liter V-6 from the current Giulia Quadrifoglio. The upside of the switch is a huge increase in power. Imparato told Top Gear that the base version will produce 350 horsepower and the Veloce will produce 800 horsepower. He also said that the electrified Quadrifoglio would essentially double in power to 1,000 horsepower.
Given that we’re two years out from the new car, we expect those figures to change slightly at launch, but we’re excited by either estimate. Imparato explained the importance of maintaining character through electrification, “I don’t want you to have the discomfort of switching to an EV. The question for me isn’t whether to switch to an EV, it’s getting the right handling and agility.” ”
The Veloce and Quadrifoglio may take a similar setup to the upcoming Maserati GranTurismo Folgore, with three electric motors—one in the front and two in the rear—but we expect the Alfa to use a skateboard battery configuration, while the Maserati battery uses a few “engines.” Bay.
