2018 Vulcano Black Giulia Quadrifoglio
I think it's just a slogan though. I don't think they are actually renaming the company
Regarding 40% in the US by 2030..... that probably applies across all brands Stellantis offers in N.America, including Dodge, Chrysler & Jeep.Great news from that article. Only targeting over 40 percent in the US to be low emission vehicle (LEV) by 2030. So, the targets are always missed and we will have at least 8 more years of 100% ICE's and probably other 20 years or more with 60% of ICE's. In regards to the supposed re-names, I doubt the new brands will be “Heating Up People, But Not the Planet”, “Clean Technology for a New Generation of Families”, “Tear Up the Streets… Not the Planet”, “It’s Only Green When It’s Green for All”, etc. They are simple slogans to be added to the marketing campaigns and advertising, which Alfa Romeo has none. We will continue to see the " La Meccanica Delle Emozioni" for a while.
Well, it is part of the slogan, as none of the other brands have a year in their tag line.Regarding 40% in the US by 2030..... that probably applies across all brands Stellantis offers in N.America, including Dodge, Chrysler & Jeep.
“From 2024, Alfa Becomes Alfa e-Romeo” - Stellantis
The date isn't part of the slogan; it's a deadline. IMHO
The Emira is absolutely gorgeous!The 4C is a future classic, precisely because of what it is, including imperfections and compromises IMHO. (And i for one will regret never getting one).
Lotus Emira… i wonder how many SUVs Lotus had to sell to justify making a real sports car that will cost under $100k(Apparently thats the logic these days). And look at that… ICE engines(V6 and I4). Supposedly, in 2021, companies had to “electrify or die”.
I am grateful that Lotus is doing what it does, and i suspect the Alfa MC-20 might have been a competitor, before it got handed over to Maserati(thanks Manly!/s).
PS> It frustrates me to no end that Fiat and Maserati offer 2-door automobiles, and Alfa f-in Romeo can’t. sigh
here in Middlesex County in NJ, Alfa's are still very few and far between.I actually see a huge uptick in Giulia & Stelvio consumption around the area I live in (Morris county, NJ). I'm sure it extends to at least some or more surrounding counties. It used to be a game between my daughters & I at spotting Alfa. Now it's like you see a handful everyday. I told my kids, as always, we rode the wave ahead of the wave. Move on.
I had a 24x30 lease that ended last day of April. I strongly believe I'll be either leasing, or likely buying in the next year.
All these corny virtue-signaling taglines just turn me off from owning an EV more than I already am.Have you guys seen all the other Stellantis tag lines they released the other day? Some of them are pretty hillarious/sad. Twitter was having a field day with them.
