Alfa Romeo Shows Off Concept Plug-In Hybrid

Concept Plug-In Hybrid

What does a plug-in hybrid look like in Italian style? Well, if you go and check out the Alfa Romeo Tonale, you will see how the Italian automakers took the concept of the plug-in hybrid. When they first unveiled it at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, it was the first time that it had ever been seen. This crossover has smaller dimensions than the Stelvio, but you still have a great vehicle that gets better gas mileage.

Named for European Road

Much like the Stelvio, the Tonale has been named after a European road. You will find the Tonale Pass in the Alps, and in fact, it is connected to the Stelvio Pass. The styling of the Tonale takes an ever-evolving concept and turn it into a transformational experience. Alfa has gone on to say that they were inspired to use the exterior of famous models from the past like Disco Volante Spider and Duetto. Nevertheless, you still probably won't draw any connections between these sports cars and this high-performance crossover vehicle.

What Does the Interior Look Like?

On the inside, you have a four-seat interior, and you have an infotainment system that sits in the center. This is a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, and you have a 10.25-inch central touchscreen. As the driver, you can even access a social network known as Alfista. There's also a marketplace known as Paddock where you can conveniently buy things right from the dashboard for the maximum level of convenience.

DNA-Drive Mode Selector

With this hybrid car, you will have settings specific to the plug-in hybrid powertrain. With the Tonale, you will use Dual Power Mode for summoning power from the electric engine and the gas engine. If you go into Natural Mode, this is the mode that remains unchanged, and it's the most like default. Advanced Efficiency has been changed to Advanced E, and it's the all-electric mode. If you want to run solely on electricity, then this is the mode that you will want. Along with the different modes on the Alfa Romeo Tonale, you can set up specific throttle settings or set the configurations for sharper braking.

The First Plug-in Hybrid

This has become Alfa Romeo's first plug-in hybrid, and the gas engine sits up front while the electric engine sits in the back. This is the first compact utility vehicle from Alfa Romeo. When you look at it from a purely aesthetic point of view, you have an attractive Italian vehicle to be certain. This is the first CUV that Alfa Romeo has made, but they did an excellent job with making it look amazing.
