Alfa Romeo Tonale: Italian hybrid SUV debuts in September

Alfa Romeo will anticipate the premiere of its first plug-in hybrid model, and everything is planned for the new Tonale SUV to be revealed in September, and the first deliveries are made effective in December this year. 

Although the Italian brand is very secretive about the development of the new Alfa Romeo Tonale, the first plug-in hybrid model, a recent announcement assumes that the advances are important. Everything would be ready for the SUV to be officially known in a few months. 

This is how Alfa Romeo will have the unprecedented Tonale ready ahead of schedule and the commercial schedule will begin in September when its premiere will take place. Then in December, the first limited units of the launch edition will be delivered and in the first months of 2022, it will be massed. 

Its prototype was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2019, as a benchmark for future cars of the brand with electrified seal. However, until now they have not managed to have more details of its design, except that it will lose 10% of what was raised in the concept car. 

The next Alfa Romeo Tonale will be an important piece in the plans of the Italian firm in the market. It will take the place of the Giulietta, which has just canceled its production, to strengthen its offer in the SUV segment. Its plug-in hybrid system will allow it to compete at the height in Europe. 

Its aesthetic is marked by a sporty and elegant style, on its front, the characteristic Alfa Romeo triangular grille, together with slim lighting set with a wavy LED line. A similarly designed luminous signature appears on the rear. 

Inside, the Tonale will stay true to the prototype, featuring a sophisticated, minimalist cockpit with various illuminated accessories and Alcantara upholstery . On the front panel, there is a sports steering wheel, a 12.3-inch digital dashboard, and a multimedia system with a 10.25-inch screen.

Another attraction of course is its plug-in hybrid propulsion system inherited from the Jeep Renegade,  with the great possibility of opting for a 1.3-liter Turbo engine connected to an electric one, with combined powers between 190 and 240 horsepower. 

This being the case, very soon we will begin to see the appearances of the Alfa Romeo Tonale, in spy photos while tests are being carried out and the teasers and advances of the brand will not be lacking, which will allow us to obtain more details of the new Italian SUV.
