Alfa Romeo's first electric car will be called 'Milano', the Italian carmaker has announced.

Initially rumoured to wear the 'Brennero' nameplate, the new electric SUV will be revealed in April 2024 before going on sale later in the year. 

The Milano will be Alfa Romeo's smallest model since it axed the MiTo supermini in 2019, and will use parent firm Stellantis's E-CMP platform as already used by the Jeep Avenger. 

Alfa Romeo is tight-lipped about battery details, but due to the platform's use on the Avenger it's likely the Milano will use a 54kWh battery giving a 250-odd-mile range. Just like the Avenger, the baby Alfa SUV is expected to come with a dual-motor, four-wheel drive system. But while this layout is used to increase off-road traction in the Jeep, the system will be used to aid on-road agility and performance in the Milano.

The new SUV measures around 4.1m long and 1.8m wide, and Stellantis has lofty ambitions to take the Alfa Romeo brand upmarket over the coming years. As such, the Milano will be tasked with stealing sales away from our Car of the Year 2024, the Volvo EX30.

The Milano name is an important one for the Alfa Romeo. Not only has it been used before on a US version of the 75 saloon in the 1980s, but it's the place where Alfa Romeo was founded in 1910. The use of the name shows the level of expectation bosses at the Italian car brand have for the newcomer.
