Alpine is testing its first SUV

Alpine is extensively testing its first GT X-Over SUV model, and the car was filmed under the camouflage of a modified Dacia Duster bodywork. Certain details, however, reveal important elements of the future model.

Large wheels with 19-inch wheels of the former Megane Trophy hide large Brembo brakes on the front axle. The test car also detects deep sills, which are likely to be added as the battery will be housed in the floor of the new platform.

Large fenders indicate an extended track. Instead of Duster’s five-door configuration, here we see a modified design of the rear end. Alpine previously published a picture of the future model with a sloping roof line and lights with four lamps, which are the design features of this sports brand.

Company chief Gilles Le Born said last year that the GT X-Over is likely to have three electric generators to achieve more agile handling. It is planned to keep a 215HP engine on the front axle for the CMF electric platform, and a system with a vector torque distribution is planned for the rear. Alpine aims for a total power of around 450HP.

The GT X-Over will be an SUV, but the French brand promises the sporty features for which it is known, which will be achieved by using components from the parent company Renault. Production of the new model will begin in 2025 at the Dieppe factory in France.
