Italian premium car maker Alfa Romeo, which joined 13 other brands in the Stellantis car corporation formed in early 2021, has shared its plans for the future. Until 2026, the iconic brand plans to release about five new models.
Alfa Romeo’s newly minted CEO Jean-Philippe Imparato, who previously served as head of Peugeot, told Automotive News Europe that the brand will launch five new cars over the next five years, once a year. The creation and release of new models will be possible thanks to the promise of Stellantis to fund the research and development of all of its brands over the next ten years.
The first novelty under the Alfa Romeo brand will be the Tonale crossover. It was supposed to go into mass production this year, but the launch was delayed. The manufacturer now plans to unveil this model in March 2022, and sales, if all goes according to plan, will start in June. As for the other four models, nothing is known about them yet.
It should be noted that the Stellantis concern was formed as a result of the merger of the Italian-American Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) and the French Groupe PSA (Peugeot and Citroen). It includes a total of 14 car brands, including Alfa Romeo, Lancia, Maserati, Dodge, Citroen, Jeep, Opel, and Peugeot.
