NAPLES, Italy: In early 2023, Alfa Romeo will offer its first compact SUV (sport utility vehicle) with the all-new Tonale.
Manufactured at the Pomigliano d’Arco plant in Naples, Italy, Alfa Romeo’s first plug-in hybrid begins rolling off the production line for North America with availability in June.
Its 15.5-kWh lithium-ion battery with 90-kW electric motor delivers an electric range of more than 48km, while its 1.3-litre turbocharged engine produces a best-in-class 285hp.
Pricing for all-new 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale starts at US$42,995 (RM189,715).
Customers choosing to lease the Tonale can take advantage of a US$7,500 (RM33,093) federal EV (electric vehicle) tax credit
The Tonale enters the premium compact CUV segment with standard all-wheel drive, and a variety of driver assistance systems, Uconnect 5, and an all-new connectivity platform with Alfa Connect.
Driving dynamics are assisted by a rapid-response Frequency Damping Suspension (FDS) system, engineered to create a comfortable ride and automatically adjust the suspension for spirited driving.
"Entering the competitive premium compact sport-utility segment with such a compelling product and our brand’s first electrified offering shows a clear direction for Alfa Romeo’s future," said Larry Dominique, senior vice president and head of Alfa Romeo North America.
