Fiat Chrysler Automobiles has big plans for its struggling Alfa Romeo brand.

Seven new models are being planned for Alfa Romeo in hopes of increasing sales fivefold. First on the Italian automaker’s list will be the 4C Spider in 2016, which debuted at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. The convertible sports car will be followed by sedan and wagon variants for its Giulia and Alfetta vehicles in 2017 and 2018 respectively.

The Giulia sedan will aim to compete against the BMW 3 Series while the Alfetta will be a BMW 5 Series rival. In addition, the brand will likely produce two crossovers, one small and one large, which will also debut in 2017 and 2018. Previously, we learned that Alfa Romeo is developing a new rear- and all-wheel drive platform for its new vehicles, which suggests the MiTo and Giulietta front-wheel drive hatchbacks will not get successors.

It is unknown which of the Alfa Romeo vehicles are part of the North American resurgence plan, though it’s likely that the brand is waiting to see how the 4C sells in the U.S.
