How Far Can the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Travel Without Gas?

We could not be more excited for the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale to arrive at the Alfa Romeo Ottawa showroom. When the latest Alfa Romeo crossover SUV goes on sale, it will be available in two versions, one will be equipped solely with a gasoline-powered engine and the other will use a different power plant to drive the front wheels and an electric motor is attached to the rear axle. In fact, the PHEV iteration of the 2023 Tonale will be able to make short trips using just the power stored in its onboard battery system. So, how far can the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale travel without gas? Our team had that same question and did a little homework to answer it. Let’s take a closer look.

2023 Tonale PHEV Electric Driving Range

According to Alfa Romeo, the coming 2023 Tonale PHEV model will be able to travel 48 km (30 miles) using just the power stored in its battery system. That is perfect for short trips to the store or to run a few errands on an afternoon. All the power to make these gas-free drives comes from the 90-kilowatt electric motor mated to the vehicle’s rear axle. That small motor can make 1,844 pound-feet of torque from zero rpm. When the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale PHEV is operating on only battery power, the small, but powerful electric motor will provide more than enough driving excitement to make being behind the wheel fun.

The innovative Alfa Romeo hybrid system offers three driving modes to give drivers the exact on-road experience they would like to have. Tonale drivers will be able to select:

  • Dual Power: The vehicle will employ the gas engine and electric motor to deliver maximum performance.
  • Natural: This mode is designed for convenient efficiency. The Tonale will be powered by both the gas engine and electric motor to extend the vehicle’s overall range as much as possible.
  • Advanced Efficiency: When the driver is only making a short trip, the vehicle will only use the electric motor for propulsion.

Does the 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale Hybrid Have AWD?

You need to be able to rely on your vehicle at all times. That includes during times when the weather is less-than-ideal. The 2023 Alfa Romeo Tonale PHEV will be ready to answer its owner’s needs by being equipped with the automaker’s Q4 all-wheel drive system, designed to not only handle slippery road conditions, but it will also help with acceleration as well.
