Alfa Romeo: two years added to launch

by David Zatz on

While the first of the new Alfa Romeo line is being launched in 2016, the last in the series won’t see the light of day until 2020 — two years after its original scheduled date, according to a recent FCA investor report. The change is credited to a slowdown in China and the need to have global distribution fully in place by the time the cars show up.

The new architecture is designed for rear and all wheel drive, and is to challenge BMW and Mercedes more directly; it will be sold in North America for the first time in many years, and in the Asia-Pacific region. The basic design was reportedly jointly developed with FCA US engineers, and Dodge is said to be developing their own versions; it is possible that, once the Giulia is on the streets, Dodge will be given a free hand and will not have to wait for comparable Alfa Romeos to be launched before doing their own models.
