Alpine and Lotus collaborate on new EV sports car - News

After the Renault group acquired Alpine, they have been on a quest to reinvent their vehicles and shine a light on Alpine as a luxurious Electric only brand with high quality performance and their newest venture seems to be following that train of thought. They have decided to partner up and collaborate with Lotus to create three brand new vehicles: an SUV, a Hot Hatch and the aforementioned sports car.

Lotus and the Renault Group have signed an agreement to begin preliminary studies into engineering prospects on the EV sports car. It’s rumoured that this will likely be the successor to Alpines previous A110 but as a fully electric model.

Considering both brands focus quite heavily on lightweight vehicles, this partnership seems to be a match that will benefit both parties. Also the high costs of creation of Electric vehicles and the studies they require means both companies can offset some of the cost making this venture not only an exciting prospect but a financially stable one also.

This timing for Alpine also matches Lotus’ desire to move towards EV vehicles as they previously announced that they were seeking to add an entirely new selection of EV vehicles to their fleet. This falls in line with most automotive companies now as they look to the future of engineering and move towards a greener outlook.

Here at Trackdays, we have spoken many times in recent months about the inevitable move towards green vehicles that are safer for the roads - and perhaps just as importantly the environment, such as the announcement from F1 forcing companies to adjust and create new ways of engineering cars that are environmentally friendly that we first reported on back in October.

Alongside this, Tesla’s pioneering engineering proved that electric cars are more than capable of producing the exhilarating ride that most supercars do and since their inception we have seen a rapid increase in EV production; in particular in the luxury car industry and that is a big positive for the future of green cars.

We’re excited to see Alpine and Lotus combine their prowess and create something truly unique in the next few years and fingers crossed we’ll see other car companies take the same route; meaning we’ll get a variety of incredible cars utilising the engineering skills of numerous experts.
