Unfortunately for fans of Alfa Romeo’s sleek flagship sedan, the current Giulia will get a reimagining in the next few years. However, the next-gen Giulia isn’t going to gain any timidity with its updates. Instead, the new Alfa Romeo Giulia EV will see yet another Quadrifoglio nameplate, albeit this time with upwards of four-figure horsepower figures. Still, the latest Giulias, especially the clover-bearing models, have created quite the act to follow.

The high-voltage Alfa Romeo Giulia EV could be tearing up streets as early as 2026 with a 1,000-horsepower Quadrifoglio model

Alfa Romeo released the Giulia in 2017 as one of its first smashing successes in years. Better yet, the Alfa Romeo Giulia hosted the first tire-eviscerating Quadrifoglio model of modern times. Frankly, it wouldn’t be a stretch to call the turbocharged 2.9L Quadrifoglio a four-door Ferrari. However, after years of super sedan status, the Giulia is looking at its first major overhaul, including electrification. 

That’s right; the Alfa Romeo Giulia EV is going to happen. Better yet, the Italian Stellantis-owned marque may produce a 1,000-horsepower, high-voltage EV version of the Quadrifoglio. We expect the Veloce and lower trims to carry over, albeit with much less power.

Still, the upcoming Giulia EV could have the tenured Tesla Model S in its crosshairs. At the top of the Model S’s lineup, the Plaid produces 1,020 horsepower courtesy of a tri-motor, 99.3 kWh application. Consequently, the AWD Tesla super sedan will hit 60 mph in between 1.9 and 2.1 seconds. That is blisteringly quick. However, with similar horsepower figures and AWD, the Giulia Quadrifoglio EV could have the range-topping Model S Plaid on the ropes.

Fortunately, the Giulia won’t likely surrender all of its ICE powerplants. Instead, not unlike the next-gen Dodge Charger, the upcoming Giulia will most likely feature ICE engines as well as fully electric options. However, whatever gas-powered Giulias survive the update will have a hard time living up to the Ferrari California-esque Quadrifoglio. 

Still, fans will have to wait for the next-gen Giulias. We expect the high-voltage Alfas to begin reaching customers in 2026. In the meantime, the brilliantly flamboyant 2.9L Quadrifolgio can torch tires all the same.
