Alpine Will Bring an EV A110 Successor to the U.S.Alpine
  • Alpine's assault on the U.S. market will include an electric successor to the A110 sports car.

  • An electric A310 four-door will also do battle with the Porsche Taycan, and there will be a pair of SUVs.

  • Alpine is also exploring hydrogen combustion, most recently with the four-cylinder Alpenglow Hy4 concept.

Last year, French sports-car brand Alpine—which is owned by Renault—announced that it would enter the U.S. market in 2027 and outlined an array of electric vehicles on the horizon. Now Alpine has revealed a more specific road map for the United States, and the brand's stateside foray will be led by an electric coupe and convertible.

Alpine's future was revealed by Renault CEO Luca de Meo at the company's 2024 Annual General Meeting, as reported by Carbuzz. Seven EVs are en route and are geared to help give the brand a global reach, with the goal of having 50 percent of Alpine sales occur outside Europe by 2030. The flagship will be an electric sports car that will serve as a successor to the gas-powered A110, set to be discontinued soon, and is confirmed for the United States. The A110 EV should arrive starting in 2026 and will face off against the upcoming Porsche 718 Cayman and Boxster EVs.


Alpine will also revive the A310 name, and rumors suggest it will emerge as a slinky four-door to face off against the Porsche Taycan in 2028. But the bread and butter of Alpine in the United States will be two SUVs. A compact model, reportedly called the A390, will likely share its platform with the Nissan Ariya when it arrives in 2027, while the larger A490 is rumored to take on a more wagon-like shape like that of the Taycan Cross Turismo.

Alpine is also exploring hydrogen-powered cars and recently revealed the Alpenglow Hy4 concept, a dramatic Le Mans–inspired racer. It's powered by a 340-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that combusts hydrogen instead of gasoline. A larger V-6 is reportedly in development, and Alpine has hinted that the Alpenglow could reach limited production, according to Autocar.

Alpine is poised to reveal the electric A290 hot hatch this summer, previewed by an eye-catching concept, but this will not come to America. Still, the brand will have a diverse lineup as it tries to break into the U.S. market later this decade.
