A report in Autocar suggests that Renault, Infiniti and Lotus are in talks that Renault is considering a production version of the Alpine A110-50 concept. The production version “probably needs more than the Renault-Nissan Alliance on its own,” that’s where Lotus steps in with its Evora platform, supplying the “running bits” for the Alpine.
The Evora platform is also the basis for the Infiniti Emerg-E concept which is in the process of being developed even though no decision has been made on the production. The company has stated that Emerg-E “could be built in Britain.” Lotus, on the other hand, claims it’s ahead of schedule for the 408 horsepower, 738 pound-feet of torque and 30-mile electric range Evora 414E.
The alliance of Renault and Infiniti with Lotus could help make all three cars a good possibility.
