The group includes the new A110, a sporty hot hatch, and a grand tourer.
Back in May, it was confirmed that high-performance Renault Sport Cars would be rebranded as Alpine Cars, ushering in a new era of high-performance Renaults. Right now, Alpine only offers the pretty A110 with its sporty 1.8-liter engine, but a fully electric version of the A110 is on the way. At Renault's recent Electropop event to outline the company's electrification strategy, we got our first look at Alpine's future cars.
Based on the dark silhouettes, these teasers appear to be of the next-gen A110 - a car being developed together with Lotus - as well as a hot hatch and what looks to be a grand touring coupe.
The A110 teaser only really shows the roofline and what looks to be a smooth, sleek, and curvy body. Both Alpine and Lotus share a similar philosophy of building lightweight sports cars with exceptional dynamics, so this car could very well set a new benchmark for EVs in terms of driver engagement.
As for the Alpine hot hatch, it sports a shorter body and a large rear wing. This is expected to be a high-performance version of the upcoming Renault 5 EV. This car will be built in Northern France on the new CMF-BEV platform and will be one of seven new Renault EVs to be launched by 2025.
Electric hot hatches aren't exactly commonplace but cars like the Cupra el-Born prove that we shouldn't shy away from the concept.
The third Alpine EV appears to be more of a grand tourer, possibly with four doors. It could be similar in concept to vehicles like the new Audi e-tron GT although its size and further technical details remain unknown.
Alpine will be an electric-only brand from 2024 and if we were to guess, we'd say that the first of these new EVs to arrive will be the hot hatch, followed by the new A110 and the mysterious grand tourer.
