The twenty-fifth Rallye Monte-Carlo Historique will begin in Turin and four other European cities, recreating the world's first road rally only for vehicles that competed in at least one Monte-Carlo Rally Automobile before 1983. In the elegant setting of Piazza San Carlo, from 25 to 26 January, the public can enjoy living how the notion of sportiness has changed over the years: in fact, both the vintage cars engaging in the race and some current models are on display, including the new Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4, the first phase towards the sportiness of the future according to Alfa Romeo.
According to Alfa Romeo's Italian Country Manager Raffaele Russo: "We are happy to participate in this event which takes Turin back to the international stage. Racing is in our blood; it's been a symbol of Italian sporting nobility since 1910. Today, we aim to redefine the notion of Efficient sportsmanship with the new Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-In Hybrid Q4".
The Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-In Hybrid Q4, unveiled last November and now available in all Italian dealerships, rounds out the debut of the Tonale range, the model with which the brand entered the world of electricity. This new flagship model looks ahead to where Alfa Romeo sees its idea of sportiness heading. Simply put, it's the most fuel-efficient Alfa Romeo ever (CO2 emissions of up to 26g/km), allowing unrestricted access to city centers, more than 80 km of autonomy in full electric for maximum daily mobility, and more than 600 km of range for tackling extensive extra-urban travels. And with a total of 280 horsepower, you can expect the entire Alfa Romeo experience behind the wheel.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-In Hybrid Q4 is the perfect SUV for long trips with the whole gang or a few close friends, thanks to its class-leading interior space, high level of comfort, silky-smooth driving, and little carbon footprint. It has the most advanced onboard technology and connectivity of any Alfa Romeo, and class-leading road attributes to boot. The goal is to reimagine what it means to be sporty in the twenty-first century by fusing quality and attention to detail with dynamic traits. With the brand's electrification in mind, the classic Alfa Romeo insignia is reimagined as an elegant electric snake silk-screened on the Tonale Plug-In Hybrid profile, which is further highlighted by the privacy glass.
Because of this, the Tonale Plug-In Hybrid Q4 represents a significant step in Alfa Romeo's "zero to zero" journey toward becoming a zero-emission brand in 2027, when its whole lineup will be fully electric. Alfa Romeo has established itself as the industry leader by accelerating this carbon neutrality transition in five years.
