2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale rolling off the line at the Giambattista Vico Stellantis plant in Pomigliano d’Arco, Naples, Italy

While Europe has been enjoying the Alfa Romeo Tonale, the Italian brand’s first PHEV compact crossover, for a few months, we in North America have had to wait. But it won’t be long now: production for Canada and the US has begun at Alfa’s Giambattista Vico Stellantis plant in Pomigliano d’Arco, Naples, Italy.

With a 16.5 kWh battery, the hot AWD crossover will sport 48 kilometres of electric-only range, and the additional 1.3L turbocharged engine combines with the 90 kW electric motor for a segment-leading 285 horsepower. There will also be a gas-only version, which sports a 2.0L turbo four-cylinder with 268 hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque.

Prices for the Tonale PHEV start at $54,995 for the Sprint version, with the Veloce coming in at $57,495. This means the PHEV will qualify for up to $5,000 in Canadian EV rebates. The 2.0L starts at $44,995 for the Sprint and $46,495 for the Veloce. Expect to see the crossover in Canadian dealerships in June.

The Tonale features Alfa’s Frequency Damping Suspension (FDS) system for more dynamic performance, a host of driver assist features, a 10.25‑inch centre touchscreen and 12.3‑inch driver’s cluster screen with Uconnect, and an NFT (non‑fungible token) digital certificate.
