Final Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Giulia And Stelvio Models Announced

2024 will see the Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Giulia and Stevlio end production

The final Alfa Romeo Quadrifoglio Giulia and Stelvio models will leave the factory in June 2024 as both models will be discontinued moving forward and as with many other petrol powered vehicles, ending an era. As electrification claims its newest victim, which other Italian automakers will follow suit?

Now while both Alfa Romeo cars are great, perhaps the best in their class, even in some markets. Unfortunately, Europe is requiring more electric vehicles (EVs) or hybrid vehicles with smaller displacement turbo engines in a bid to reduce emissions in the continent so both of them have to go. 

Moreover, Alfa Romeo (Stellantis is its parent company) has no choice but to adhere to these emissions regulations set by the EU. Alfa Romeo will now build more volume cars in the future, such as the Tonale and the upcoming new Milano. Less exciting cars, for sure, but more in line with regulations.

The next Alfa Romeo Giulia would have 1,000hp in Quadrifoglio form and utilise a battery with a capacity of more than 100kWh. These are insane figures and definitely will put a smile on any enthusiast’s face but with the rise of EVs and the prominence of emissions regulations, cars like this are becoming less and less prevalent.

We still don’t know exactly when these Alfa Romeo models will arrive, but it should be sometime before 2027. By then, the brand only wants to sell EVs, which means that not only the Giulia but also the Stelvio Quadrifoglio models with internal combustion engines (ICE) will need to be replaced. 

On top of that, we also know Alfa Romeo is not alone in this because by the end of the year, DS (the luxury arm from the Citroen brand), also only wants to sell EVs and in 2026 Lancia will go purely electric as well, so clearly, more and more automakers in the EU are embracing the electric future. 

Afterwards, all other Stellantis brands (the group has many brands under its belt), must also say goodbye to the combustion engine in Europe by 2030 at the latest. Luckily, this means there is still a chance that the Stellantis banner will continue to sell petrol powered vehicles in other regions and markets, including Malaysia.

So what do you guys think about this? How long before the rest of the world also follows the EU in enforcing these, quite frankly, unfair and unnecessary emissions regulations?
