Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) has said it will unveil seven new Alfa Romeo models and push to increase sales of the sports car brand fivefold, Reuters has reported. The re-launch of the 104-year-old Alfa Romeo brand, along with luxury Maseratis, is a key part of the group’s plans to return to profit in Europe by 2016. The carmaker plans to release a convertible Spider by 2016, followed by the sedan and wagon versions of the Giulia and Alfetta models in 2017 and 2018, respectively. The pipeline also includes two crossover sport utility vehicles, a compact version and a larger one, which will come to the market in 2017 and 2018, respectively.
