Like many manufacturers, Alpine has hinted it is open to exploring alternative powertrains including electric and hydrogen models for its U.S. reentry.

Alpine has entered and exited the U.S. multiple times throughout the brand’s history, most recently the brand left the U.S. in 1987. 

Alpine hopes the new models will compete with Porsche’s growing electric lineup including the 718 Cayman, Boxter and Taycan, officials noted.
