FRENCH sports car maker Alpine - part of the Renault Group - has unveiled ambitious expansion plans as an all-electric brand.
Relaunched in 2017 with the A110 and following a 2021 reorganisation, Alpine is gearing up for a new growth phase.
The launch of its new 100 per cent electric models from 2024 will enable the brand to boost its revenues so that it can be at break-even from 2026.
From 2027, a world expansion phase will begin, backed by a line-up tailored to new markets including the USA, that will help improve Alpine financial performance and brand value.
Its plans include an electric, sporty and urban A290 small car based on the Renault 5 and Renault 4 CMFB-EV platform to be available from 2024.
That will be followed in 2025 by a larger Crossover GT that will be manufactured in France at the Manufacture Alpine Dieppe Jean Redel plant.
And by the end of 2026 it plans a new A110 which will be 100 per cent electric.
Under the programme set out by Luca de Meo, chief executive of Renault Group, and Laurent Rossi, chief executive of Alpine, at the company's F1 racing headquarters in Enstone, Oxfordshire, Alpine wants to have two billion euros in revenue in 2026 and to have a constant increase in revenue of eight billion euros in 2030.
It says it will have a 100 per cent electric car range by the end of 2026 and will be net-zero carbon in production during 2030.
