Founded in 1910 in Italy, Alfa Romeo was started by Ugo Stella and Nicola Romeo. Their name comes from the company's original name, Anonima Lombarda Fabbrica Automobili, and the last name of one of its founders. The company is best known for producing racing vehicles, including the Alfa Romeo 158/159, one of the most successful race cars ever manufactured, winning a total of 47 Grand Prix races.
The first automobile Alfa Romeo produced (under their official name) was the Torpedo 20-30 HP, a 4-cylinder 4-seat touring car. Before it officially became Alfa Romeo, the company also created the 1910 24 HF, a 24-horsepower racing vehicle used to compete in the 1911 Targa Florio. Today, Alfa Romeo makes a variety of luxury cars and SUVs. Their lineup includes the Giulia, Giulia Quadrifoglio, Giulia GTA, Stelvio, Stelvio Quadrifoglio, Giulietta, 4C, 4C Spider, and the Tonale. Alfa Romeo’s highest US sales in recent years were in 2018, when it sold 23,800 vehicles.
Alfa Romeo recently announced they intend to transition into an entirely electric vehicle lineup by 2027, eliminating all internal combustion engine models from their portfolio. They intend to start by creating an EV version of their Giulia model and a next-gen Giulia Quadrifolgio. From there, they want to manufacture an entire line of EV SUVs, though it hasn’t set an exact date on when this design or production would occur.
