alfa declares pricing for 2024 tonale

If you’ve been looking for an all-wheel drive electrified compact crossover with Italian flavor, well, your choices have been rather limited. That changes with the 2024 Alfa Romeo Tonale, a plug-in hybrid with a starting price of $42,995.

That’s for the base Sprint trim, naturally, which won’t show up until later in Q1 of this year. The other trims, Ti and Veloce, will be priced at $44,995 and $47,495 respectively. As often happens, the more expensive trims are available immediately. Funny, that. A destination charge of $1,595 is not included in those prices.

Whilst your author cannot claim to know the minutiae of this country’s byzantine EV credit system, Alfa says the Tonale does qualify for the $7,500 Federal EV tax credit while it is available. This is thanks to the car’s status as a bonafide PHEV, one which is capable of an electric range of more than 30 miles when conditions are right. Its 15.5 kWh battery works in concert with a 90-kW electric motor to turn this trick. In addition to this, the Tonale has a 1.3-liter turbocharged gasser which contributes to an advertised 285 horsepower. Every Alfa Romeo Tonale will include all-wheel drive.

“We look forward to launching the all-new Alfa Romeo Tonale and competing in the premium compact sport-utility vehicle segment with the brand’s first plug-in hybrid offering,” said Larry Dominique, Senior Vice-president and Head of Alfa Romeo North America. Left unsaid are any words about the very similar Dodge Hornet, a rig that will likely be priced south of this Alfa thanks to a different options mix and target market.

This marks Alfa Romeo’s first heavily electrified offering, a prospect that will either intrigue or terrify a person depending on their personal experience with Alfa electrical systems from the Bad Old Days. Yes, yes – it’s been ages since the land was littered with pretty cars broken down on the hard shoulder, but American memories can be rather long. Ask any politician.

Alfa says the globally available Tonale is part of a radical evolution taking place at the brand, one which looks forward to a new era of electrification. If you’re curious, Alfa Romeo sold a total of 12,845 vehicles in the 2022 calendar year, about evenly split between the Giulia and Stelvio, representing less than 1 percent of Stellantis volume in this country.

    Eff This! Where is the quadroformaggio version? If it's from Italy has to do one of three things: 1. Look Good 2. Taste Good 3. Go Fast. #1 is highly debatable for this, #2 let us leave paint-eating to some of the commenters on here, and #3 is highly doubtful.

    O for three on the Italian requirements and haunted by some ghosts from Kokomo.

    Alfa represents "less than 1 percent of Stellantis volume in this country."

    Who-ah. Has there been a brand deathwatch yet made for Alfa? Mitsubishi and Jaguar are waiting in the wings for the grim reaper, too.

      I'm pretty sure Alfa has been on deathwatch since it returned to the U.S. and I'm feeling like Jaguar is next up.

      But I don't like to think about anything bad happening to Mitsubishi because I remember the cars they made 1980-2000 and desperately want them to turn things around. The company sure is a snooze fest at the moment though.

  • ToolGuy 404 error on the product link. Which probably isn't terrific marketing on TTAC's part.
  • ToolGuy Second picture: Do you like pegboard storage? (I don't.)
  • ToolGuy "WHAT???"(old 'I was in the artillery' joke)
  • ToolGuy Oh and this.
  • ToolGuy "The boroughs of Bexley, Bromley, Hillingdon, and Harrow have likewise announced plans to take legal action to force a possible judicial review..."But: "In Hartford, Hereford, and Hampshire... Hurricanes hardly happen."
