The new Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4 is at the top of the Tonale range. This is part of the rollout of the Italian automaker's ambitious 5-year electrification strategy. The 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4 previews the company's offer. Based on the brand's 112 years of Italian heritage and design, Alfa will design and make high-quality, electrified, sporty, efficient, and aesthetically pleasing cars.
Regarding fuel economy, the Plug-in Hybrid Q4 system prioritizes performance. The vehicle's system output is a combined 280 horsepower, split between the front-mounted, 4-cylinder, 1.3-liter Multiair turbo gasoline engine and the rear-mounted, 122-horsepower electric motor with 250 Newton-meters of torque, via a 6-speed automated transmission. A 306-volt, 15.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery allows for a range of up to 69 kilometers on electricity alone (WLTP combined) and over 80 kilometers in urban areas. In less than 2.5 hours, you may get a complete charge thanks to the 7.4 kW of power it provides. The automobile can be charged with 3.7 kW in Danish households, and a full charge takes less than 5 hours in Denmark. Not to mention, the combined electric and gas range is said to be 600 kilometers.
Only all-wheel drive is available on the Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4. The Tonale's sophisticated 4x4 hybrid system is not physically connected but "talks to each other" electronically to reduce weight and increase agility and dynamics. The internal combustion engine propels the front wheels, while the electric motor powers the rear axle. By doing so, you may rest assured that the electric motor's consistent 100% torque will be transmitted to the back wheels as soon as the accelerator is depressed. Acceleration from 0 to 100 kilometers per hour takes 6.2 seconds, and the maximum speed is 206 kilometers per hour in hybrid mode and 135 kilometers per hour on electric power alone.
DNA (Dynamic, Natural, Advanced Efficiency) is a well-known tool among Alfa Romeo owners for fine-tuning the vehicle's driving experience and sporty traits. The function has been rethought for the plug-in hybrid powertrain in the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4, allowing the driver to adjust the car's dynamic characteristics and the powertrain's efficiency with a single knob: the DNA selector.
Tonale and the next-generation Alfa Romeo have been developed with quality in mind from the start. Quality of construction, assembly reliability, and materials' durability all contribute to the car's long-term resale value. Pogliamo, where the cars are assembled, has been modernized into a leading-edge automaking facility. Only Alfa Romeo in the Stellantis family provides a five-year vehicle warranty because the company is so confident in their quality.
In addition, the Alfa Romeo Tonale comes with the company's latest extended digital service book, the NFT (Non-Fungible Token). All data and activity about a particular vehicle can be captured and maintained in an immutable digital ledger made possible by blockchain technology. A certificate can be generated quickly and easily based on the owner's selection of pertinent information from the car's digital database (NFT). The certificate is beneficial while transacting business. An excellent resale value can be ensured if the owner can demonstrate that they have properly maintained the vehicle. Also, the consumer may rest easy knowing that the vehicle is reliable and safe. There has yet to be a car manufacturer before Alfa Romeo to offer this innovation.
Tonale has a wide range of luxuries for a pleasurable and hassle-free journey. The list is extensive and contains many features, such as wireless phone charging, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, ventilated and heated front seats, matrix lights, and much more.
Several advanced driver-assistance features are included in the new Alfa Romeo. Features include extended adaptive cruise control, a rear camera with a 360-degree field of view, and a crossing and blind-spot monitor. It has received the maximum five-star rating from Euro NCAP for its high level of safety.
Both the instrument cluster display (12.3 inches) and the infotainment touchscreen (10.25 inches) are standard features. The latter now offers a straightforward user interface that can be customized to suit individual needs. The built-in 4G module allows for automatic "cloud" (over-the-air) system updates. The integration of Amazon Alexa in the car's infotainment system makes it possible to use certain features just by speaking their names. You can unlock your Alfa Romeo Tonale from afar using the My Alfa Connect app, which provides access to the vehicle's location, fuel usage, and battery charge status. Access the E-control feature, which allows you to precondition the vehicle's interior temperature from within the app. With dynamic range mapping, you can see how far and where you can go with the power left in your smartphone's battery and your GPS.
The Alfa Romeo Tonale Plug-in Hybrid Q4 is a top-of-the-line model with two different trims. The Ti and Veloce versions feature refined aesthetics, but the Veloce is tuned for speed. In addition, a "SPECIAL EDITION" will also be available, featuring unique branding details such as red 20-inch alloy wheels with red Brembo brake calipers.
