What is the Tonale hidden beneath the surface?
It’s all very much hidden beneath the surface, save for a couple of information displays that you can summon on the digital instrument panel, revealing what the system is up to in real time. With enough charge in the 0.8kWh battery, the Tonale can creep forward on electric power only.

How interactive is the Tonales electrified drivetrain?
There’s no obvious interactive aspect to the Tonale’s electrified drivetrain - no hybrid or EV mode buttons to flick through, nor anything like adaptive recuperation to change the aggression of the regenerative braking.
Who are the rivals of the Fiat Tonale?
The most obvious rivals are the BMW X1, Mercedes-Benz GLA, Audi Q3, Volvo XC40 and Range Rover Evoque, but you could argue that posh versions of cars like the Hyundai Tucson and Peugeot 3008 are valid alternatives, too. Its not encouraging that the Tonale wades into battle with an architecture that’s an evolution of the Fiat Punto of 2005.
Does the Alfa Romeo Tonale have a gas-electric drivetrain?
We first saw the Tonale as a concept back in 2019, but extra development for its gas-electric drivetrain and the chip shortage in 2021 delayed its debut. Now Alfa Romeo has finally presented the production version of its second SUV, which slots in below the Stelvio and becomes the first Alfa Romeo to feature a plug-in-hybrid powertrain.

What are the long-term drift effects of electronic measurement equipment?
Brandl et al. (2012) state that there are long-term drift effects of electronic measurement equipment, e.g., MOSFET parameter shifts and relaxation due to biasing and mechanical stresses that have to be considered. Further, they recommend pre-aging of used electronic components to minimize accuracy degradation over the vehicle lifetime.
