Alfa Romeo for the first time below 100 thousand units since 1969
While waiting for the Chief Executive Officer of Fiat Group, Sergio Marchionne, reveal new plans to relaunch, Alfa Romeo will close 2013 by selling globally less than 100 thousand units. It would be the first time under this threshold since 1969.
Previous plan for Alfa, unveiled in April 2010, sought to achieve annual sales of 500,000 units by 2014. However, that target was lowered, first in September 2011 to 400,000 units and then in October 2012 to more than 300,000 units.
Meanwhile, Alfa Romeo is working hard for the desired turnaround. As recalled by Automotive News Europe, the engineers are engaged in Modena (at Maserati plant) on an original architecture which should be based on at least four future models: the Giulia mid-sized sedan and wagon, a large flagship sedan and a mid-sized SUV.
