If you thought the Tonale would be a subcompact SUV, think again.
Alfa Romeo may have always treated the upcoming Tonale as a “mid-size plug-in hybrid SUV,” but we had another impression. Being based on the Renegade, it was supposed to be as small as that Jeep crossover. Autocar may have made that clearer with its latest report on the Italian company. According to that article, the Tonale will be a C-segment vehicle, while a smaller crossover will get a new platform: the e-CMP from PSA. If that is correct, it will be the first fully electric Alfa Romeo in history.
The subcompact e-CUV is planned to be presented in 2022. Curiously, the chart above came up on November 11, 2019, only a few days after FCA and PSA confirmed they would try to merge, on October 31.
Before that, the company only planned to have a C-segment SUV – the Tonale – and an E-segment SUV, which would sit above the Stelvio.
