The Hybrid engine makes its debut with the unprecedented and exclusive Alfa Romeo Tonale

Since the new Alfa Romeo Tonale was presented, it has not stopped attracting attention wherever it goes. This may be by design, while staying true to its DNA of Italian sportiness; or because of the technology and connectivity on board, which make it the most technological Alfa of all time; or for its combination of quality and attention to detail with dynamic characteristics, with the aim of reinventing the sportsmanship of the 21st century; or even for its state-of-the-art electrification systems conceived to be at the service of the brand and its bold attitude. Although its qualities on the road are also unmistakable . And we have already had the opportunity to try it, and what an experience!

The 160 hp 48V Hybrid VGT (Variable Geometry Turbo) engine debuts as an Alfa Romeo exclusive. The 1.5-litre petrol engine with variable geometry turbocharger is combined with the Alfa Romeo TCT 7-speed dual-clutch automatic transmission and the 48-volt, 15 kW, 55 Nm ‘P2’ electric motor (135 Nm thanks to the ratio 2.5:1 transmission ratio) that is capable of driving the wheels even when the internal combustion engine is switched off. Thanks to this technical solution, the Tonale provides a true electrified experience. The performance is also impressive: from 0 to 100 km/h the stopwatch stops after 8.8 seconds and the top speed exceeds 210 km/h.

It is also available in the 130 hp Hybrid version with Alfa Romeo TCT 7-speed gearbox and 48-volt ‘P2’ electric motor; in this case, acceleration from 0 to 100 km/h is reached in 9.9 seconds with a top speed of 195 km/h. Its careful weight distribution and the most direct steering in its segment (13.6:1) ensure the Tonale’s safe, comfortable and fun handling on the road , placing it at the top of its class in terms of agility and driving dynamics.
