The Alpine Sports Cars A110 got Americans giddy when it was unveiled a few years ago, and then disappointment arrived when they said it wasn’t coming to the US. So when we initially heard Alpine Sports Cars will finally arrive starting in 2027, the excitement returned. But, there’s a catch – while Alpine has teased an entry into the United States market before, the French sports car maker is officially getting ready to launch a few new electric vehicles in both the U.S. and Asia in 2027.
Electric Sports cars.
“This comprehensive range of sports cars will cement our market share in our key markets in Europe and Japan. It will turbocharge our international growth, particularly in the USA and Asia, where our new models will be on sale from 2027,” said Laurent Rossi, CEO of Alpine.
The excitement is palpable as Alpine enthusiasts eagerly await the arrival of these electrifying sports cars. However, while the news of Alpine’s expansion into the American market is undoubtedly thrilling, there is a tinge of disappointment. The car that many enthusiasts truly yearned for, the iconic Alpine A110, will not be among the offerings.
The aforementioned sports car lineup will feature seven entirely new electric models. Three of these will come before 2027: a small Renault 5-based ‘A290’ hatchback, a sporty midsize crossover, and an A110 successor. The hatchback will launch in 2024 in Europe, the crossover launches in 2025, and the A110 successor will come in 2026. Alpine calls this new lineup of electric sports cars its “Dream Garage,” and we can expect at least two of them to make it stateside in 2027. The crossover and A110 should be expected, but a hatchback might be a tough sell here in the U.S.
While the prospect of experiencing the thrill of Alpine’s electric vehicles is enticing, it is hard not to lament the absence of the beloved A110. The A110, with its sleek design, impressive performance, and storied history, captured the hearts of car enthusiasts worldwide. Its absence from the American market leaves a void that many had hoped would be filled.
However, all hope is not lost. Alpine has announced that there will be a few more models launching between 2027 and 2030. Among these will be a roadster version of the electric A110, a sporty four-door sedan built on the same Alpine Performance Platform (APP) as the electric A110, and two sedans in the 3 Series and 5 Series segments. While the specific details regarding the availability of these models in the U.S. remain uncertain, there is a glimmer of possibility that the spirit of the A110 could eventually make its way across the Atlantic.
Alpine’s decision to expand into the American market is a significant step forward for the brand, marking its commitment to global growth and showcasing its dedication to electrification. The introduction of a range of electric sports cars demonstrates Alpine’s understanding of the evolving automotive landscape and the need to adapt to changing consumer preferences.
