Car registration data from the LTA has shown that just 10 Alfa Romeos were registered between January and August this year.

News has broken that Italian marque, Alfa Romeo, will no longer be distributed by its longtime official dealer, EuroAutomobile. EuroAutomobile falls under the larger EuroSports Global group, which is most famous for its Lamborghini dealership in Singapore, among the other new and used ultra-luxury cars it sells.

According to The Straits Times, the Alfa Romeo showroom at Leng Kee Autopoint was officially shut down on 30 September 2022, and appears to have been emptied out since.

The development marks the end of an 18-year partnership between EuroAutomobile and Alfa Romeo
The latest development marks the end of an 18-year partnership between Alfa Romeo and EuroAutomobile. When the latter took over distributorship in 2004, Alfa Romeo's direct parent, Fiat, had yet to be merged with Chrysler. The Italian brand is now part of the larger Stellantis group, under Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA).

Fewer Alfa Romeos have taken to Singapore's roads in recent years. Dropping from 60 registered units in 2019, only 10 units from the brand have been registered locally between January and August this year.

The firm only has the Giulia sedan and the Stelvio SUV in its lineup locally, although the Tonale, its first compact SUV - and first hybrid too - was unveiled earlier this year, and would have been a welcome addition to the family.

There has been no news yet about the Tonale's arrival in Singapore - although EuroAutomobile's role in the process is now sure to have been relinquished
As things currently stand, it appears that the honour of introducing the Tonale to Singapore will be passed on to Komoco Holdings instead - also the distributor for Hyundai, and other Stellantis Group brands currently such as Jeep and Maserati.

Although no official statement has been given yet, the move makes sense, since Komoco is already the dealer for Alfa Romeo in Shanghai on top of the Stellantis brands it is in charge of locally. 

It is currently also unclear if the additional three-year warranty that EuroAutomobile used to bundle in with its Alfa Romeos will be honoured moving forward. A two-year factory warranty is guaranteed for every car as standard.
