  • Renault product plan more electric cars and a focus on B and C-segments

The rebranded Alpine Formula 1 team has revealed a "temporary winter livery" as part of Renault Groupe's plans for what it has described as a "Renaulution".

The Alpine structure was officially launched on Thursday, with Renault CEO Lucas De Meo hailing the French manufacturer's new automotive plan as a "Renaulution".

The design, predominantly black while also featuring a large "A" Alpine emblem as well as a nod to the French flag, is described as a "temporary winter livery" with the full A521 auto launch taking place in February.

"The livery presented today is the first evocation of the Alpine F1 team's new identity", said Antony Villain, Alpine's design director.

Rossi confirmed that the Alpine team will reveal the livery that will cover its newly-named A521 vehicle in February ahead of the upcoming 2021 F1 season.

"Some of the structural graphic elements will remain on the racing livery while others will change".

Renault is aiming for the sub-brand, which includes the running of the United Kingdom -based F1 team, to be profitable by 2025.

The Alpine sports vehicle will also involve Lotus, with the latter announcing a technical collaboration to jointly develop the new EV sports auto teased here.

The strategic goal also targeted the Alpine brand being profitable across all activities, including F1, by 2025, with this bid set to be aided by the new F1 budget cap in place for this year.

While news about Alpine ditching combustion engines doesn't come as a big surprise, we're excited to hear the company will team up with Lotus to co-develop a "next-generation EV sports vehicle".

"The craftsmanship from our plant in Dieppe, the engineering mastery from our Formula One and Renault Sport teams will shine through our tech-infused, 100% electric line-up, taking the handsome Alpine name to the future".

Further changes are expected at the team in the coming weeks surrounding its senior management, following the unexpected and surprise departure of Cyril Abiteboul from the Renault Group earlier this week.
