Alfa Romeo’s First EV The Milano SUV Breaks Cover



Alfa Romeo’s first EV finally became official—the Milano, named after the city where the brand was founded in 1910 and meant to signify its electrically powered rebirth. You can already order one—the “Speciale” launch version, that is, which in Italy starts at €41,500. Alfa says it’s offering “the sportiest and most exciting compact car to drive in the entire class.”. If you buy one, you’ll get access to over 600,000 charging stations built into the navigation system and a wall box charger for home.

There will be two drivetrain options, one developing 156 hp and the other going up to 240 hp. The former version has a quoted range of up to 410 km. The battery capacity is 54 kWh for both, with up to 100 kW DC fast charging supported (and this takes 30 minutes to go from 10% to 80%). AC charging is supported at up to 11 kW.

The car is 4,170 mm long, 1,780 mm wide, and 1,500 mm tall, and, as you can see, comes with Alfa Romeo styling, which is expressed in the “balance of proportions, purity of lines, and attention to the quality of surfaces,” according to the brand itself.

The Milano’s “strong identity” is contributed to by the “legendary shield,”  the bold look of the front with “3+3 and Adaptive Full LED Matrix headlights,”  and the “rich and harmonious reflections” created through “volumetric contrasts.”. The trunk capacity is 400 l.

On the inside, there is a lot of “Italian attention to every detail” and “use of the finest materials,” as well as the placement of all the controls within the driver’s reach. This is also evidenced by the “compact” steering wheel. The instrument panel has a “historical ‘telescope’ design” that “persuades you to wrap your hands around the steering wheel” and “make the best of a unique driving experience”.

In the middle of the cluster, there’s a 10.25″ TFT screen, and in the middle of the dash, there’s an additional 10.25″ infotainment touchscreen that will work with customizable drag-and-drop widgets that every user can arrange to their very own liking. The air conditioning vents are in the shape of the four-leaf clover, “the symbol par excellence of Alfa Romeo sportiness.”.
