Alfa Romeo is stepping into the electric vehicle arena, and the Milano EV is ready to make its debut on April 10. As the Italian automaker’s inaugural fully-electric model, the Milano is generating buzz with a sneak peek that includes some tantalizing photos, giving us a glimpse of what’s to come.
A Euro Affair: Milano’s Limited Availability
Hold your horses if you’re in the U.S., though, as the Milano is anticipated to be exclusively available in Europe and possibly other international markets. Drawing comparisons to the Jeep Avenger, another small EV not gracing American roads, the Milano falls into the small subcompact crossover category. This stylish vehicle, slightly smaller than the Tonale, aims to capture attention on the global stage.
Balancing Act: Engineering Excellence and Design Flair
Alfa Romeo emphasizes its commitment to the Milano project, assuring enthusiasts that the same engineering prowess behind models like the 4C, 8C, and Giulia/Stelvio Quadrifoglio is ensuring top-notch dynamics. Testing at the Balocco test track is the proving ground for this electric addition to Alfa’s lineup.
Despite its EV roots, the Milano is not a one-trick pony, with gasoline variants also in the cards. The design of this stubby SUV features a distinctively raked rear window, complemented by the iconic triangular trefoil grille peeking out from beneath the camo. Surprisingly, the Milano’s stature doesn’t deter it from rocking massive 20-inch wheels clad in low-profile Michelin Pilot Sport EV performance tires.
As the Milano gears up for its grand entrance in April, there’s excitement in the air about whether it will indeed live up to Alfa’s high standards, not just in design but also in dynamics and handling. Stay tuned as we eagerly await the reveal of Alfa Romeo’s first electric marvel.
