Alfa Romeo Tonale PHEV concept debuts at Geneva

Alfa Romeo revealed the new concept of the Alfa Romeo Tonale premium compact SUV at the Geneva show. The Tonale is the first plug-in hybrid and the first premium compact SUV for Alfa Romeo.


A rear electric engine opens the way to new technological solutions that offer driving dynamics, maximizes the drive and the pleasure of sporty driving. The evolution is also evident in the drive modes managed by Alfa D.N.A. From the beginning on the 4C and through the development with Giulia and Stelvio, it has reached the Tonale and now implements specific energy management functions.

  • “Dynamic” mode evolves into “Dual Power” mode and guarantees maximum output from the two engines

  • “Natural” mode continues to maintain the best performance optimization, and the compromise between using electric and internal combustion engines is managed automatically. This translates into everyday energy and fuel savings, but not at the detriment of performance.

  • The “Advance Efficiency” mode becomes “Advance E” for performance in full electric mode.

  • The infotainment touch screen features an “E-mozione” button, which offers specific throttle settings, sharper braking and a more direct steering response.
