Read the full story:

Alpine, Renault’s sporting sub-brand, has unveiled an all-new concept car that previews its first all-electric road car. The A290B is based on the Renault 5 Concept first seen in 2021, but adds a sporting twist and dramatic new look.

The first of the three models that will make up Alpine’s ‘Dream Garage’ of electric cars, the A290B has already been signed-off for production and is set to arrive by the end of 2024. The concept gives us the strongest hint yet as to how that car will look, albeit with some key elements still yet to be confirmed.

Like the 5 (and the next-generation Nissan Micra), the A290 will be built on Renault and Nissan’s new CMF-B EV platform. Alpine bosses suggest that ‘around 85%’ of the concept’s exterior design will be transferred to the production model, which will come as great news for drivers looking for a true electric hot hatch.

Join Nicki as she takes a close look around the A290B concept and picks out all the parts that are already confirmed for production. What do YOU think of the new Alpine A290? Will be on your shortlist next year? Tell us what you think in the comments below.
