- The new Alfa Romeo Milano will be launched on April 10th
- Alfa Romeo’s engineering team completes the final design of the Milano at the historic Balocco test track
- The Milano is the first fully electric Alfa Romeo, and will offer superior dynamics and handling.
- The Milano development team includes Alfa Romeo engineers who have previously worked on projects including the 4C, 8C, Giulia & Stelvio Quadrifoglio, Giulia GTA and the ongoing development of the 33 Stradale.
Alfa Romeo will unveil the newest model to join its lineup, the Milano, on the 10thth April. The Milano will be the first fully electric car for the brand and will offer best in class driving dynamics and handling. Development tests are underway at the Balocco test site, Alfa Romeo’s historic proving ground.
Under the expert guidance of a team of Italian engineers who have played a major role in projects such as the 4C, 8C, and Giulia GTA, Milano will debut a fully electric Alfa Romeo for the first time. Development strategies are coordinated by the Italian team of Alfa Romeo engineers at the Balocco Proving Ground, where test drivers find the right conditions to verify the requirements and objectives set by the brand’s master engineers, who are responsible for signing off on the project.
Domenico Bagnasco is responsible for verifying the driving dynamics of the car, the Milano is modified to the highest standards, as usual for every Alfa Romeo. Bagnasco’s work includes the development of several Alfa Romeo sports cars that have become part of the collective consciousness, as a manifesto of the brand’s driving pleasure and sports: the memorable 8C, the beautiful 4C, the legendary Giulia GTA and more.
The team focuses on optimal dynamics, and targeted and specific interventions on the suspension. The goal remains excellent high-level driving dynamics, based on direct and precise steering geometry, to ensure fast cornering and superior grip.
Leading the project is Stefano Cereda, who has a long career on similar Alfa Romeo projects. Cereda made its first Alfa Romeo film with the Giorgio project, the basis of the Giulia and Stelvio flagship models and was at the forefront of the development of the Giulia and Stelvio diesel engines. Before taking over the management of the Milano project, Stefano authorized the development of the Plug-In Hybrid powertrain at Tonale.
The Milano’s technical development is led by Luigi Domenichelli, an expert Italian engineer tasked with integrating and validating all the car’s subsystems in terms of performance, durability, and comfort. Ambitious design goals aim to ensure specific road handling and class-leading ergonomics expected of Alfa Romeo, based on an efficient and modern human-machine interface.
