Under no circumstances will an Alpine A110 become a hybrid. The manufacturer section of the Renault Group is shifting in the direction of a 100-percent electric long term, and yet an Alpine A110 hybrid does exist, even if it was not manufactured by the manufacturer by itself.
This creation, of which we now will not have pictures to share with you, we owe to Technomap, “a tech firm expert in electrical architecture.” It is primarily based in Martin-Eglise, near Dieppe, where by the Alpine cars are manufactured. The notion of Technomap was to show its know-how in electrification, and to do this, the crew decided to build a running hybrid prototype primarily based on the A110.
This is not the to start with time Technomap is operating on an Alpine A110 as a number of several years back, the Dieppe-primarily based business helped the sports automobile manufacturer with the A110 Vision thought. A person of the company’s greatest-ranked professionals, Christophe Vergneault, explains:
“At the time, we did all the electrical architecture, the mechanical integration and the tuning on the circuit. We were extremely proud… but we couldn’t discuss about it”
For this new venture, in addition to adding an electric motor at the front and a battery among the two seats of the French overall performance coupe, the experts also optimized the one.eight TCe motor. They converted it to run on ethanol and elevated its ability from 252 horsepower (185 kilowatts) to 400 hp (294 kW). With this output, this could extremely well be the most potent A110 in the entire world.
This 1-off prototype value the firm a minimal additional than €500,000 (about $565,000 at the present-day exchange premiums) which Technomap financed in affiliation with ID Idea. Sad to say, the hybrid Alpine A110 is not supposed for sale, but will yet move a number of exams and at some point be offered to automobile producers. Pretty before long, the electrified sports automobile will hit diverse tracks, such as the Dreux circuit, Bugatti’s examination circuit, and Le Mans.
