Alpine launches the A290, marking the beginning of its 100% electric Dream Garage. Upholding the brand's pillars of performance, agility, and lightweight design, the A290 offers a compact and agile urban sports car experience. It features an Ampere-derived electric platform, enhancing performance and home recharging with Mobilize Power and bi-directional V2G recharging.

 
 

Exterior Design: Sporty and Compact

The A290's design emphasizes sportiness with a muscular appearance, compact dimensions (3,990 mm length, 1,820 mm width, 1,520 mm height), and a 2,530 mm wheelbase. Key features include the unique X-shaped headlamp motifs, wide wings, side skirts, and a distinctive rear diffuser. It offers 19-inch alloy wheels in two designs: Iconic and Snowflake. Four body colors are available, including the new Alpine Vision Blue.

 
 

Interior Design: Driver-Focused Cockpit

Inside, the A290 provides a sporty ambience with a Deep Blue tone and Nappa leather-wrapped, three-spoke sports steering wheel. The 10.1-inch central screen is driver-oriented, featuring physical air-conditioning controls and RND transmission controls. The seats are designed for support and comfort, using environmentally friendly materials.

 
 

Platform and Dynamics: Accessible Sportiness

The AmpR Small platform optimizes weight distribution and lowers the center of gravity. The A290 delivers up to 220 bhp, 300 Nm of torque, and a 0-100 km/h time of 6.4 seconds. The bespoke engine subframe and multi-link rear suspension enhance handling and stability. Four driving modes—Save, Normal, Sport, and Personal—offer tailored driving experiences.

 
 

Powertrains: Performance and Efficiency

The A290 offers two power levels: 180 bhp and 220 bhp. It features Alpine Torque Technology for optimal traction and an Overtake function for extra power boosts. Regenerative braking can be adjusted in four levels. The Alpine Drive Sound system provides authentic driving feedback.

 
 

Technology: Immersive Digital Experience

The A290 includes a 10.25-inch instrument screen and a 10.1-inch central infotainment screen with unique graphics and Google Automotive Services. The Alpine Telemetrics function offers Live Data, Coaching, and Challenges for an engaging driving experience.

 
 

Battery and Recharging: Comprehensive Ecosystem

Equipped with a 52 kWh battery, the A290 offers a range of up to 380 km (WLTP). It includes a heat pump and a 100 kW DC fast-charging system, allowing a 15-80% charge in 30 minutes. An 11 kW on-board charger supports AC charging.

 
 

Quotes from Key Figures

Philippe Krief, CEO Alpine: "Our Alpine A290 is the first model of a new electric generation, inaugurating our Dream Garage in the finest possible way."

 
 

Antony Villain, Alpine Design Director: "We conceived the A290 as an ultra-compact variation of the A110, expressing its potential for driving pleasure to appeal to styling fans and performance enthusiasts alike."

 
 

The A290 sets the stage for Alpine's electric future, blending tradition with cutting-edge technology and design.
