Alfa Milano: redefines the cannons of beauty

Riley Riley

Say hello to Alfa’s new Milano, a replacement for both the Mito and Giulietta hatches — what’s more it’s electric.

A small SUV, it sits on the same platform as the Fiat 600e and Jeep Avenger.

A hybrid version will follow.

Alfa reckons Milano “redefines the canons of beauty” in the segment. Big talk.

There’s two versions, one with 11kW of power and another with 179kW, both with the same 54 kWh battery.

Range is a claimed 410km (WLTP).

Orders are now open for the launch Speciale edition.

The team that coordinated the development of the driving dynamics is the same one that developed the Giulia GTA.

Alfa says it has the most direct steering in the segment (14.6), specially calibrated to be extremely precise, to enhance its exceptional road holding qualities.

In the more powerful Veloce version, the sports suspension has been lowered 25mm; the front and rear anti-roll bars are extra sporty to guarantee quick cornering with a high level of grip; the braking system has front discs of over 380mm with four-piston monobloc calipers; the Torsen differential offers the best possible traction in all conditions.

The high-performance 20-inch tyres are also specific to electric vehicles and offer extensive levels of grip.

Like other Alfas it comes with the DNA drive mode system.

Dynamic mode, partly made possible by specific steering and accelerator calibration, offers the utmost performance and driving pleasure.

In a careful balance between performance and comfort, Natural model is designed for everyday use.

Advanced Efficiency is calibrated for maximum energy efficiency by reducing consumption without affecting driving pleasure.

And, on the Q4 hybrid version, a fourth mode known as Q4 is offered for low-grip conditions.

EV Routing is an innovative connected system built into the navigator that manages the customer’s charging needs, automatically and stress-free.

All the driver needs to do is to enter a destination, then the navigation system automatically calculates any charging stops needed along the route.

Another major innovation is the integration of the Hey Alfa virtual assistant and ChatGPT (A.I.) which use voice recognition to give you a useful, discreet ‘copilot’ on your travels, for information, advice and to meet all the driver’s needs.

Charging up the new Milano takes less than 30 minutes from 10 to 80 per cent with 100kW DC fast charging station.

A wallbox for home charging is included as part of the launch offer.

Milano will be offered with a choice of four powertrains: 101kW Ibrida and 101kW Q4 Ibrida (both hybrids), and the 116kW Elettrica and 179kW Elettrica Veloce (both fully electric).

Three packs complete the offer:

  • Techno, for the best specifications in terms of safety, technology, and functionality, such as level 2 autonomous driving, handsfree electric tailgate, LED Matrix lights and connected navigation with virtual assistant.
  • Premium, for the best in comfort and exclusivity, courtesy of the vinyl-fabric blend interior, electrically operated driver’s seat with massage function, interior ambient lighting, and aluminium pedals and kick plate.
  • Sport, which by definition offers the best in sportiness with Sabelt seats, Alcantara upholstery, and sporty exterior features.

The Alfa Romeo Milano is not expected to arrive here until late next year.
