Alpine is a company with an all-electric future ahead of the launch of a new lineup of models, the performance brand owned by Renault unveiled an electric vehicle concept based on its existing A110 sports car.
The A110 E-ternité concept unveiled is designed to celebrate Alpine's 60th anniversary and showcase the research work the company's engineers are doing in the power industry. The powertrain uses the same battery modules as the recently launched Renault Megane E-Tech, but had to be rearranged to fit in the existing A110 chassis.
The battery pack has a total weight of 392kg, but Alpine claims that clever manufacturing methods elsewhere have reduced the weight gain compared to the A110 combustion engine to just 258kg. The battery capacity of 60 kWh allows the E-ternité to travel up to 260 miles without recharging.
The vehicle uses a "Standard Electronic Motor" Renault Group to drive the rear wheels. It develops 239 hp Acceleration from 0 to 62 mph in 4.5 seconds, but maintains a relatively high top speed of 155 mph.
