Plugging in the future: The Tonale marks a new beginning for Alfa Romeo as the brand steps into the era of electric cars with a compact SUV

By: Guilherme Marques

More so than any other nation, the Italians have always managed to inject a concept of beauty into their cars that gives them a very special aura and won them a legion of fans.

Alfa Romeo is in a process of reinventing its product catalogue, with the need to create electric alternatives that can compete with the technology of the brand’s German rivals.

The new Tonale Plug-In Hybrid is the most technologically advanced Alfa Romeo ever and the first hybrid from the Arese icon.

The 90kW electric engine on the rear axle provides 600km of autonomy and, when combined with the 1.3-litre, 180-horsepower petrol engine which delivers power to the front axle, the Tonale boasts a total of 275 horsepower and can reach 100km/h in 6.2 seconds.

With top-line aesthetics and interior quality and dynamics that live up to the brand’s sporting soul, the Tonale is a first step in the right direction for the future of a historic name.
