Still on the hot topic ofAlfa Romeo 33 Stradalelet's turn our attention to the electrified version.

The electric version has three motors, one at the front and two at the rear, and a 102 kWh battery offering a range of around 450 km. It weighs in at just over 2.1 tonnes.
Performance remains exceptional, with a 0 to 100 km/h time of less than 3 seconds and a top speed of over 300 km/h.

Nevertheless, the latest rumors claim that the electric version has not won the hearts of buyers, These are all turning to the thermal version.
