Alfa Romeo Giulia to go EV in 2 years with 745kW Quadrifoglio


The iconic Italian sedan will return as an EV, packing serious performance and a range claim of 700km

Alfa Romeo CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato has supposedly confirmed that the Giulia sports sedan will be returning as an EV with up to 745kW on offer.

It’s likely that this reborn Giulia will arrive around 2025, and will be part of the Italian’s brand plan to move to an exclusively electric line-up by 2027.

Upon arrival, it’s likely that the Giulia EV will face competition from the Porsche Taycan, Audi E-tron GT and the upcoming Mercedes-AMG C63 PHEV in the high-performance EV sedan segment. 

What can we expect from the Giulia EV range?

Speaking to UK outlet Autocar, Imparato confirmed the model’s transition to battery power, and mentioned that it would likely get a driving range of up to 700km. 

Three models will be offered in the Giulia range, with the entry-level grade getting 257kW, the mid-spec Veloce coming with 590kW, and the range-topping Quadrifoglio offering “around 1000hp”, which is 745kW in our speak.

As well as offering blistering performance, this all-electric Quadrifoglio will almost double the power figure of the current model, which offers 375kW from its 2.9-litre twin-turbo petrol V6.

Like all other high-performance EVs in the segment, we can expect to see the Giulia go all-wheel drive with the transition to electric power. 

It’s possible that it could make use of a system similar to the upcoming tri-motor Maserati Granturismo Folgore. Here, the coupe gets one motor on the front axle and two on the rear.

Imparato also confirmed that the reborn Giulia will sit on Stellantis’ new STLA EV platform, which makes use of an 800V electrical architecture. Because of this, the Giulia EV should be able to charge from 10-80 percent “within 18 minutes”. 

As for the design, nothing official has been released, but the CEO previously told Autocar that it would be treated to a less conventional shape. Despite this, Imparato affirms that it will still look “very cool”.
