The Alfa Romeo Tonale reflects the traditional brand's transformation. Alfa Romeo has used Alessandro Volta's revolutionary method, which established the groundwork for electric mobility. With the introduction of the new Alfa Romeo Tonale, the brand has undergone a fundamental transformation and entered a technological era.
The Tonale Hybrid SUV is the most technologically advanced Alfa Romeo because of its onboard electronics and connections. As a result, the new SUV reinterprets sportiness in a 21st-century manner by combining quality, attention to detail, and high dynamics.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale Hybrid is the brand's first electric vehicle while remaining faithful to the brand's DNA, which is rooted in Italian sportiness. The basis of this strategy is a hybrid drive system that was created specifically to suit Alfa Romeo's high standards.
The new Alfa Romeo Tonale Hybrid includes a 1.5-liter four-cylinder gasoline engine with a variable-geometry turbocharger that produces 118 kW (160 hp). The gasoline engine is paired with a 48-volt electric motor in a P2 arrangement that generates a nominal 15 kW and 55 Newton-meters of torque. With a gear ratio of 2.5:1, the actual torque is around 135 Nm.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale goes from 0 to 100 km/h in 8.8 seconds and reaches a peak speed of 210 km/h when equipped with a seven-speed Alfa Romeo TCT dual-clutch gearbox. Furthermore, the P2 drive system separates the gasoline engine and electric motor. Thus, the new Alfa Romeo Tonale Hybrid may also run only on electricity.
