Alpine’s New 100% Electric Sports Show Car To Be Unveiled In Bristol

Alpine are a brand on a green footing as they plan to unveil their latest creation with electric power.

The A290_β or A290 “beta” show car foreshadows the brand’s future electric hot hatch, ready to reinvent sportiness.

The first vehicle in the ‘Dream Garage’ embodies a new era for Alpine, purposefully electric and sporty.

The A290_β pronounced beta follows the Alpine brand naming strategy of an A followed by three digits.

The first number refers to the size of the vehicle while the 90 is specific to the brand’s multi-purpose sports vehicles, known as life-style, while the purely sports vehicles have the number “10”.

The β refers to the beta test used in the software world, the test version, just before the final version.
