Alfa Romeo will present its first electric model in early 2024. Which will be a small SUV and, as everything indicates, it will be called Brennero.
Alfa Romeo will very soon enter new “fields”, as at the beginning of the very next year it will present with all solemnity not only the first electric model in its history, but also the smaller, which will be a B-class crossover.
Much has been written about its name, with Alfa Romeo having released a series of teasers that indirectly but clearly “photograph” its identity. With the most recent one being indicative, which has a title «Maybe we’ve known it all along».
In this the Milanese brand lists a series of geographic coordinates, which include locations known to the company. As the Her museum in Arezethe baloko track, the Stelvio Pass, but also the Brenner Pass. The latter, just over 30 km long, is one of the lowest passes in the Alps and runs from Sterzing, South Tyrol in northern Italy, to Innsbruck, the capital of the western Austrian state of Tyrol.
As is well known, the larger Alfa Romeo Tonale and Stelvio “draw” their names also from mountain passes in the Alpsso it makes sense for the new member of the Italian SUV family to follow the same strategy.

When will we see the new Alfa Romeo Brennero?
Alfa Romeo’s small crossover will be presented early next year as another version based on the new Jeep Avenger and Fiat 600. Both are primarily sold as EVs, but are also available with a mild hybrid, three-cylinder gasoline engine. In any case, the new Brennero is set to become Alfa Romeo’s first EV.
The power of the electric motor in the case of Alfa Romeo’s new B-SUV it is expected to reach 156 hpwhile it remains unknown whether the upgraded to 54 kWh battery will be “transplanted” into the Italian proposal.
