Future Alpine A110 electric – Last January, the Dieppe craftsman began his turn towardselectrification of all its future models, through the voice of the Renault parent company. Besides theintroduction of an SUV, alongside a city car, a sporty coupe will be there. We know a little more about this future electric A110, expected by 2025.
As the Renault-Nissan Alliance prepares to decline its news CMF-EV electric platform to all the sauces, it prefers to delegate the development of that on which will be based the future Alpine A110 electric. And not with just anyone since it was the English Lotus that caught the attention of Renault’s thinking heads.
Lotus in the ranks
It must be said that the English specialist has already acquired serious experience in electrification, in recent years, through the project Evija. This is the name of the electric hypercar developing up to 2000 hp that Lotus intends to sell in 130 units, at a rate of £ 1.7 million, excluding taxes, each.
More than 400 electric hp
A nice introduction that lets predict a bright future for its future electric coupe which will share its mechanical components with the Alpine A110. Rumor has it that the two battery-powered sportswomen will develop 300 kW minimum, or more than 400 hp, in propulsion, thanks to two electric motors housed in the rear central position.
The death of the thermal A110?
We also learn thata second variant, even more powerful, would receive the reinforcement of a third engine on the front axle, with all-wheel drive. A riot of power that should not make us forget that electrical technology will involve strong weight gain. And despite the use of aluminum architecture, it is not certain that the future electric A110 will outclass its thermal counterpart which culminates to date at 292 hp.
The arrival of this electric sports car will not, however, eclipse the current A110.. Both will be marketed in parallel for a few more years, after 2025. To stay up to date, the thermal sports car will benefit froma restyling, in a few years, and will arm itself witha supercharged variant, exceeding the 300 hp mark.
