ENSTONE, England -- Alpine, Renault Group’s sports and racing brand, unveiled a lineup of seven cars that it will launch in the next five years, as it aims for 8 billion euros in revenue and double-digit profit margins.
The big surprise of this week’s announcements at Alpine’s Formula One base in Enstone is three models on the new Alpine Performance Platform, or APP. The aluminum architecture is adapted for a full-electric drivetrain from the base of the current A110 sports coupe.
In addition to the new A110, expected at the end of 2026, there will be a roadster version and the A310, a 2+2 two-door coupe (by 2028). The APP cars will be designed for sale in the U.S., a lucrative market that Alpine hopes to enter in 2027.
Other models include the A290 hot hatch based on the Renault 5 (second half of 2024); the C-XO GT, or compact crossover GT (2024-25); and two larger crossover GTs, one midsize and one large, both of which will also be homologated for the U.S. Those are due to launch around 2027.
Alpine has not announced pricing, but CEO Laurent Rossi describes the brand’s positioning as being in a “white space” between traditional premium automakers such as Audi, BMW and Mercedes-Benz and luxury brands such as Porsche and Maserati. He said that Alpine would not compete with Porsche on price, although the current A110 is within reach of the Porsche 718.
Journalists at Enstone this week were given a look at production versions of the A290 and XO GT (minus the interiors), as well as a “proportion correct” styling exercise for the next A110, but no images were released and photos were not allowed.
