Production of Alfa Romeo’s first ever plug-in hybrid, the 2024 Tonale PHEV, has started at the Giambattista Vico Stellantis plant in Naples, Italy, ahead of arriving at dealers in June 2023.
The Tonale’s plug-in hybrid powertrain features a 15.5kWh lithium-ion battery and a 90kW electric motor, combined with a 1.3-liter turbocharged engine to deliver a peak power output of 289ps. All of the Tonale PHEVs come with all-wheel drive as standard and the crossover utility vehicle will be capable of more than 48km of electric range.
Designed by Alfa Romeo, the Giambattista Vico Stellantis plant was established in 1972 and has manufactured over five million cars to date. In 2013, the facility was awarded World Class Manufacturing Gold certification, and has since undergone a wide range of upgrades with the addition of new technology to enable greater electrification.
