Alfa Romeo has revealed its new Milano compact available with a fully electric powertrain, representing its first EV. The Stellantis brand also confirmed that the new compact, for which orders will open in early summer, will be offered in alternate powertrains, including a hybrid. The Milano’s EV form, called Elettrica, is available in two fully electric powertrains with two power variants – with one offering 156 hp (114 kW) and a range of up to 250 miles (402 km), and the sportier Veloce offering 240 hp (176 kW).

Inside all Milano models, in the middle of the cluster, is a fully digital 10.25-inch TFT screen, which can be used to access the car’s data and settings for its driving technologies. In the middle of the dashboard, and oriented towards the driver, is a 10.25-inch touchscreen system. Developed to work with widgets and graphic components across all features, the system can be customised through efficient drag and drop controls. This functionality allows for different homepage layouts for different users, where each of the car’s features is available as an app.

Milano also offers a series of ADAS, including Level 2 autonomous driving functions. The vehicle is optionally available with 360-degree parking sensors and a 180-degree rear camera that monitors its surrounding area while proximity access technology automatically opens and closes the car upon detecting the user approaching or moving away from the vehicle.

The Milano will also offer a variety of connectivity features designed to enhance the driver’s experience. Its EV Routing system, for example, is built into the navigator – through which it automatically calculates any charging stops needed along the route, with access provided to over 600,000 charge points across Europe. Real-time traffic, battery and driving style monitoring makes it possible to rely on EV Routing for a driving experience free from charging anxiety.

Alfa Romeo Milano is also equipped with Alfa Connect Services, which offers advanced onboard connectivity and a range of services designed to ensure safety and comfort. Leveraging over-the-air (OTA) technology, the car’s maps and software are always kept up to date. At the same time the package offers My Navigation, which consists of apps to remotely search for destinations and points of interest (POI), as well as real-time alerts on traffic, weather, and speed cameras. The cockpit also integrates the Hey Alfa virtual assistant and ChatGPT, which together use voice recognition to register requests on information and advice.

Through the My Alfa Connect app (available for compatible iOS and Android devices), customers can also interact with the car using its My Remote function to check the vehicle’s location, control certain parameters (speed and area) and receive notifications if these parameters are not respected. The app also allows users to control functions such as opening/closing doors or flashing the lights using a smartphone or smartwatch. The app’s E-Control function also enables the user to remotely start or stop the vehicle, schedule charging, or if necessary, heat or cool the interior before getting into the vehicle.

In the electric version of the Milano, Alfa Romeo has selected a new-generation power source that combines a Hybrid Synchronous Motor and a new 54 kWh lithium-ion battery. The compact is available in two power versions, 156 or 240 hp (114 or 176 kW), with the 156 hp version offer up to 250 miles (402 km) of range in the WLTP cycle, or 366 miles (589 miles) in the urban cycle. For both models, a 10-80% charge using a 100 kW rapid charger is estimated to take less than 30 minutes.

Sitting above this model is the Milano Speciale Elettrica (156 hp/114 kW) launch edition, which offers enhanced performance and comfort, as well as the following safety equipment as standard: L2 autonomous driving, connected navigation, 180-degree rear camera, handsfree electric tailgate and keyless system with proximity access technology. The Elettrica Speciale is also equipped with an 11-kW AC three-phase onboard charger to maximize charging performance in various situations.

The Milano more broadly presents a line-up strategy designed to simplify customer configuration. Here, it is offered with three powertrains, 156 hp Elettrica, and 240 hp Elettrica Veloce and three available option packs – Technology, Exclusivity or Sportiness.

The Technology pack enhances the Milano’s safety, technology and functionality, equipping it with L2 autonomous driving functions, and connected navigation with a virtual assistant. The Premium pack adds further comfort technologies, including a vinyl-fabric blend interior, an electrically operated driver’s seat with massage function, interior ambient lighting, and aluminium pedals and kick plate. The Sport pack offers Sabelt seats, Alcantara upholstery and sport-focused exterior features.
