Alfa Romeo dealer Kareem Radwan is looking forward to seeing the brand expand this year with the upcoming Tonale plug-in hybrid crossover.
The Tonale will be Alfa's first new vehicle since the Stelvio crossover in 2017 and its first electrified option, offering 30 miles of electric range.
Larry Dominique, Alfa's North America vice president, on Friday said he hopes the Tonale can help build familiarity for the brand in the U.S. as it prepares to go fully electric by 2027. This was the first make meeting for Alfa since its 2014 return to the U.S., and Dominique was pleased by a strong turnout.
Radwan, who owns K&S Alfa Romeo of San Diego, said the meeting had positive vibes. Executives told dealers they would work to ship more high-performance, hot-selling Quadrifoglio trims of the Stelvio and the Giulia sedan.
