Renault Alpine, a brand known for its speed and performance is currently working on an electric sports car called GT X-Over. GT X-Over is an exclusive image of the car that shows you how it could look. It is expected to launch in 2025.
It will be directly competitive with models from Tesla Model Y and the future electronic Porsche Macan. It will be built alongside Porsche’s Alpine A110 sportscar from Dieppe, France. Porsche is aiming to be an all-electric car maker by the end of the next decade.
2025 Alpine GT X-Over Review
It is expected that the standard Alpine model will include the quad-headlight design found on A110 and A110. The GT X-Over is a coupe-SUV model with a sloped roofline, similar to the Skoda Enyaq Coupe VRS. The GT X-Over will be available in Alpine Blue Metallic paint. It is similar to the A110.
It is expected that it will be available in the second quarter of 2019. To support the Alpine GT X-Over, Renault will use a modified version of CMF-EV technology. The same model forms the basis for the new Renault Megane Etech. Megane’s model is powered by a single motor, while the Alpine SUV uses three motors.
Gilles le Borgne (the Alpine chief engineer) explained more in an interview with Auto Express. Auto Express is our partner publication. We hope to implement torque vectoring and achieve amazing handling and performance, just like an Alpine. It is something we are currently working on.”
This news does not only concern Alpine, but also reports that a larger version of the Renault 5 electric vehicle is under development. Borgne confirmed that Alpine has partnered with Lotus to develop an electric car that is based on A110. It will likely use the same base as the electronic Lotus Elise and will have batteries that range from 66.4kWh up to 99.6kWh.
Alpine will not be developing its electric system blindly. It will likely instead tap into Renault for some tech. It may also borrow the 394hp dual-motor setup from the Nissan Ariya SUV. The setup could be tuned further to produce 400hp. If this is the case, you can expect a 0-60mph time of fewer than five seconds. Alpine can borrow the 87kWh Nissan Ariya Battery to get the new electric XOver with a 250-mile range.
Alpine’s upcoming electric crossover the GT X-Over will be produced at its Dieppe facility in 2025. This marque is a Renault subdivision. It is eager to be relevant in the electric age. It will be known as the GT X-Over, and it will go into production at the firm’s Dieppe plant in 2025.
The GT X-Over, which is based on the Renault Megane E-Tech Electric’s same architecture, will be the first of three all-electric vehicles that will make Alpine an EV-only producer. At the front, the Megane E-Tech Electric’s motor of 215 bhp will be featured. But there will be something unexpected at the rear. It will be AWD with more than 430 horsepower.
GT X-Over, a performance-oriented crossover, targets the premium market. It will compete against the upcoming Porsche Macan EV and Tesla Model Y Performance as well as the Ford Mustang Mach-E GT. It is unlikely that Alpine’s sports EVs will reach North American shores, given that Renault and its entire staff have no plans to reenter America.
Alpine’s Dieppe Factory, which is currently undergoing major transformations in preparation for the electric age, is currently being transformed. In memory of the man who established it in 1955, it has been renamed Manufacture Alpine Dieppe Jean Adele. This was 20 years after it was sold by Renault.
