By 2016, Alfa Romeo will launch nine new models, according to a roadmap that has recently been leaked. During an investor’s conference over a year ago, Alfa Romeo talked about its plans until 2014. But now, an extended product roadmap of Alfa Romeo’s plans through 2016 has come out. By next year, the company intends to launch a new B-segment model, followed by a C-segment model that will succeed the Giulietta.
What Alfa Romeo has planned for the D-segment is to launch the Giulia, together with the crossover/SUV- and Sportwagon-based versions. For the E-segment, Alfa Romeo will likely launch a Maserati Ghibli-based model that will go up against the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, Audi A6, and BMW 5-Series. In this product roadmap, we also see that three special models are being planned.
A coupe version of the production 4C will come first. It’s set to debut in Geneva in March 2013. It will then be followed by the Spider model that represents an open-top version of the 4C. The Duetto is the third model. This will be a small roadster developed along with Mazda and that is set to start production in 2015. Mazda will make this vehicle in Hiroshima, Japan, which is where the new MX-5 will also be built.
