Welcome to the forum. Sounds like the engine limp mode engaged on. That‘s was it was struggling to get home.
The car may have a intermitted bad coil pack, dirty fuel injectors. It’s hard to diagnose the issue without any codes.

You didn’t mention the mileage on your car. It the engine a Twin Air?

It’s not a Twin Air 29000 on the clock ?

My best guess with the very little information given is it needs new coil packs and spark plugs. Or the crank position sensor is failing had both issues with my abarth.
