Alfa Romeo Junior EV Could Arrive In Malaysia From RM205K-RM255K

Will Stellantis Malaysia be able to launch a few tax-free Alfa Romeo Junior in Malaysia in time?

In April, Alfa Romeo revealed the Milano – a new small crossover with the option of an electric powertrain. They swiftly changed the car’s name to Junior to appease the Italian government and now we have the official pricing of the vehicle in the UK. The Alfa Romeo Junior Elettrica 156hp starts at £33,895 or around RM204,000 while the Alfa Romeo Junior Elettrica 156hp Speciale climbs up to £35,695 or RM215,000. If you want more power, the full-spec Alfa Romeo Junior Elettrica 240hp Veloce has a £42,295 sticker price .

The 156hp models have up to 400km of range on the WLTP cycle while the 240hp model is only capable of just under 350km of driving range. A quick charge from 10% to 80% takes under 30 minutes over 100kW DC fast charging. There’s also 11kW AC charging available. The Alfa Romeo Junior boasts the lowest weight in the segment. The Veloce trim gives you sports suspension with 25mm lower ride height. It also comes with anti-roll bars in the front and back, Torsen differential and 380mm with four-piston monobloc calipers. This model also comes shod with 20″ diamond cut alloy wheels, a black painted roof, red painted brake calipers and a diamond black Scudetto. Corsa Sabelt seats in black and red leather and suede can be found.

The basic model is still pretty well specified. You get 18″ diamond cut aero alloy wheels, LED headlamps and taillamps, gloss black mirror covers, rain sensing wipers and rear parking sensors along with Icona seats in fabric, ambient lighting and a 10.25″ digital instrument cluster and 10.25″ infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

There are also three option packs are also available: Technology, Premium and Sport. These unlock features such as Level 2 autonomous driving, handsfree electric tailgate, LED Matrix lights, connected navigation with virtual assistant, aluminium pedals, Sabelt seats, Alcantara upholstery and more.

With the EV incentives coming to a close soon, it’ll be up to Stellantis Malaysia to weigh the pros and cons of setting up the Alfa Romeo brand up in time for this vehicle’s launch. While EVs are doing better than ever in Malaysia, sales are not guaranteed, particularly for premium brands.
