2019 Geneva: Alfa Romeo Tonale Concept previews new new plug-in hybrid CUV

Alfa Romeo is signaling with pure clarity its intent to enter the compact utility vehicle segment with a new concept that is currently being displayed at the 2019 Geneva International Motor Show in Switzerland. This new concept car – the new Alfa Romeo Tonale – combines practicality, dynamism, style as well as electrification.

The Alfa Romeo Tonale show car essentially marks a new milestone for the brands. It is the brand’s first compact SUV, albeit in concept form. Moreover, the Tonale is Alfa Romeo’s first entry into the world of electric cars, although in plug-in hybrid configuration. For customers, the new Tonale serves as preview for the Italian carmaker’s up and coming CUV.

Alfa Romeo actually announced last year its product road map for the period covering 2018 to 2022. Aside from its current offerings of six models – MiTo, Giulietta, Giulia, Stelvio, 4C Coupe and 4C Spider – the brand is planning to cover 71 percent of the premium market with the new Giulietta MCA, the production version of the Tonale, Giulia MCA (LWB), Stelvio MCA (LWD), GTV and the 8C.

Stunning Alfa Romeo 6C Disco Volante Concept rendered

Another automotive designer has once again made a great effort to stand out in this ever-changing motoring world. Like always, rendering artists typically get their inspirations from the most infrequently tapped sources--- as we can see with this latest interpretation of an Alfa Romeo supercar.

It was roughly a couple of months back when we featured Alex Imnadze’s surreal Apple Eve Concept. The Italian artist has also penned his own version of the Porsche 918 Spyder only recently. If any, Imnadze’s stunning creation brings about a brand new perspective, while keeping the vehicle’s traditional “performance characteristics” an integral part of his modern interpretation.

Imnadze’s concept, which goes by the name Alfa Romeo 6C Disco Volante, has a good starting point unbeknownst to all. First, the automotive designer derived its genes from two famous bloodlines-- the 1952 Disco Volante by Touring Superleggera and the Alfa Romeo 6C 1500 sports car that took off in Milan in 1925. Nevertheless, Imnadze came out with such an impressive interpretation of the two legends— by making it into one spectacular masterpiece.

Alfa Romeo Gloria Concept shows it face at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show

The Alfa Romeo Style Centre and design students worked together to build the 'Gloria' Concept currently on display at the Geneva Motor Show. Fiat & Chrysler Design chief Lorenzo Ramaciotti said that in this project, the Master in Transportation Design students gave "their completely independent interpretation of a new Alfa Romeo saloon."

Even if it’s just a styling exercise, the vividly designed Gloria was brought to the European Design Institute display. The Gloria borrows a few design cues from various Alfa Romeos (old and new) but it keeps the typical saloon car dimensions with a focus on passenger comfort and space.

It is powered by some very advanced V6 or V8 bi-turbo engines. According to Lorenzo Ramaciotti, they guided the projects so that they can get the most from their “spontaneous expressions of creativity.” By doing so, the product became stimulating and was “marked by professional and creative excellence.”

Furthermore, it is also fairly easy to distinguish the concept as an electric Audi e-tron as it features upright octagonal frame instead of a traditional radiator grille. Large inlets can be found extending from below the concept’s two matrix LED headlights to the front apron.

It looks like Aston Martin will soon be following up its Valkyrie and Valkyrie AMR Pro offerings with a third hypercar. This comes as Aston Martin presented the design concept for the new AM-RB 003 at the 2019 Geneva Motor Showin Switzerland.

In addition, the AM-RB 003 features a variable airfoil that spans across the rear wing. This variable airfoil is made possible by a new technology from FlexSys Inc. – FlexFoil.

With this new system in place, the downforce AM-RB 003 can be changed without changing the physical angle of the entire element. This new system also virtually gets rid of the turbulence and the associated drag increase in present active wing designs.

Carlex Design isn't a beginner with regards to tuning the Mercedes-Benz X-Class. In fact, it has even created a version with Maybach-like appearance and features. It has also created Off-Road-focused and Urban-tailored versions. Now, Carlex Design seems to be not contented with how far it has gone with the X-Class and is now presenting a new concept design for the luxury SUV from Mercedes.

Indeed, the Mercedes-Benz X-Class represents the luxury side of pickup trucks. While offering a drive that is comparable to a sports utility vehicle, the X-Class also delivers a smooth, comfortable ride that is expected of luxurious vehicles. Furthermore, it is laden with features usually found in premium cars. But at Carlex Design, the X-Class can be turned into luxurious 6x6 beast off the road. This can be well seen on the new X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept by Carlex Design.

The X-Class Exy 6x6 Concept is essentially the X-Class evolved into a whole new luxurious beast. It is much different from Carlex Design’s previous re-imaginations of Mercedes’ luxury pickup. The concept pickup has six wheels – two wheels more than a standard X-Class and previous Carlex Design X-Class creations. This also meant an extra axle on the rear section of this X-Class 6x6. The addition of two wheels naturally resulted to an extended bed, allowing this conversion of the X-Class to load and carry a greater volume of cargo.
