These illustrations were fabricated by Jean Francois Hubert/SB-Medien for CarScoops. They are abstract assets that are not accompanying to or accustomed by Alfa Romeo or Stellantis.
Stellantis is bringing aback the Lancia Delta as an EV, which is abundant account for Lancia fans, audacious there are still some left.
But it could additionally be abundant account for Alfa fans, too. Since the aggregation axed the Giulietta bear aftermost year it hasn’t had a baby ancestors car to action customers, and won’t accept until the Tonale SUV assuredly appears in aboriginal 2022. Not anybody wants an SUV, though. VW’s Mk8 Golf, currently cardinal two on the European sales archive with its accustomed alloy of common five-door bear practicality, is affidavit of that.
Alfa has no affairs to booty on the Golf with a absolute backup for the Giulietta, which never akin the sales success of the earlier, prettier 147. But how about an Alfa battling for the VW ID.3, a new all-electric Sud or 147 congenital from the aforementioned basic set as Lancia’s accessible Delta? That sounds acceptable to us.

As far as we know, Alfa has no affairs to do that. But should it? It seems absolutely achievable if Stellantis is already planning to anatomy a similarly-sized EV bear for Lancia (as absurd aloft by our artist). Much like those other, admitting smaller, Stellantis electric hatchbacks, the Peugeot e208 and Opel Corsa-e, or yhe Audi Q4 e-tron and VW ID.4 SUVs over at VW Group, the Alfa and Lancia EVs could allotment platforms, suspension, motors and array packs, yet attending and feel absolutely audible from one another.
Dedicated EV Platform
While Alfa’s accessible Giulietta-sized Tonale SUV shares a belvedere and alternative constituent amalgam technology with Jeep’s Renegade and Renegade 4xe, the new Delta will be based on the Stellantis STLA Medium architectonics that comes on bandage in 2023. Specifically advised for C- and D-segment cars, it can be configured to assignment with FWD, RWD and AWD setups. Power outputs could ambit from 168-241 hp (170-245 PS), apparently with added to appear if it decides to anatomy a modern-day bi-motor Integrale – or, in our academic case, an Alfa Quadrifoglio EV.
So let’s say the abstraction of an electric Alfa bear has legs. How would you appetite the face and anatomy to look? As allotment of a new beachcomber of cleverly styled electric cars like the Renault 5 that adjure animosity of homesickness while additionally giving us tomorrow-tech, the new Delta is apprenticed to angular heavily advertence the archetypal Delta Integrale. And we’d adulation to see Alfa abundance the aforementioned bond with an electric hatch.
Our artist’s consequence gives one possibility, adjustment some of the administration cues of the 2019 Tonale SUV abstraction on a lower, sleeker auto form. We’ve already apparent leaked shots of the assembly Tonale and apperceive it appearance bigger, beneath alluring accepted headlights than the concept.

But the new bearing of EVs like the Hyundai Ioniq 5 need to abrasion their tech hearts on their sleeves, so the auto could affection slimmer lights and a full-width DRL bandage to accomplish the car instantly apparent at night, and acknowledge afflatus from the archetypal step-front Giulia auto in the day.
How Awakening Can You Go?
Or should Alfa go alike bolder with the awakening feel? Maybe revisit the archetypal appearance of the 1972 Sud hatch, a appearance so acceptable it was aerial about broad by Walter de Silva for Seat’s Leon in 1998.
It could assignment in the hooded lights and anecdotal B-pillar cutouts from the aboriginal 1970s Montreal sports car. And maybe the flared arches from the V6-powered 147 GTA alien in 2002.
Forget Beautiful, Go Brutal
But delay – what if Alfa forgot about aggravating to be animal and based the administration of its new bear on the barbarous attending of the iconic Zagato-designed SZ? That alarming face would attending absurd repurposed with a coffer of LED headlights and the alpine block lid would ensure there was affluence of baggage space. You can alike brainstorm how the contour would attending if the wheelbase was continued and acclimatized to clothing a five-door configuration.
To Build, Or Not To Build
With a aback archive of jewels from which to draw afflatus and a new belvedere and active accessory at its disposal, there’s no agnosticism Alfa could accomplish a abundant electric hatch. But will it? Alfa Romeo already has a adamantine time award abundant buyers for its acceptable looking, fine-driving Stelvio back flogging SUVs is declared to be like cutting angle in a barrel. An electric C-segment bear ability be addition cephalalgia it could do without. Or, accustomed that what the aggregation is already accomplishing isn’t working, it could be a actively acute move.
Do you anticipate Alfa Romeo should piggyback on Lancia’s Delta EV and anatomy a bandage new electric hatch, and if so, what do you anticipate it should attending like?
