As the curtain comes down on the 87th Geneva Motor Show, after 13 days and record attendance yet again, Renault, Dacia and Alpine are taking a fond look back at some of the event’s highlights.
In this exceptional interview we quizzed two of the people who are writing the latest chapter in the Alpine history. Michael van der Sande, Alpine managing director, and David Twohig, Alpine chief engineer clue us up on some of the A110 secrets.
The big day’s finally here, after years of eager expectancy: Alpine’s at the Geneva International Motor Show with the long-awaited A110, a two-seater sports coupé with centrally-mounted rear-end engine truer than ever to the Alpine spirit of elegance, agility and authenticity. It’s made at the Dieppe plant in France, and will be shipping in Europe from late 2017 prior to staggered rollout in the rest of the world.
Dacia saw this year’s Geneva Motor Show as the ideal venue for showing off new limited editions across the Stepway family, with a distinctive new Iceland Grey livery and smart new interior. And Duster invited itself along into the same style programme too.
After launching New Renault ZOE, with its 400 km travel range (NEDC), at the 2016 Paris Show Motor, Renault is following through with further spectacular proof of its primacy in electric vehicle development, in the form of ZOE e-Sport, its new electric concept car, starring at this year’s Geneva Motor Show. Just imagine New Renault ZOE metamorphosing into a sportscar!
Following on from its world-exclusive début appearance in Colombia last July, Renault’s first one-tonne pickup is stopping over for a fortnight’s stay at the Geneva International Motor Show. After all, the steep and winding mountain roads in the nearby Alps make a perfect setting for Alaskan as it readies up for European release in late 2017.
New Captur is making its world preview appearance at the Geneva Motor Show, alongside the other models in Renault’s full crossover line-up. Come and take a look!
Though Dacia’s resounding international success is hardly news, we’re proud to note that the brand continues to gain ground across all the regions where Dacias are sold.
Check out these preview shots of Renault Captur, top of the European urban crossover charts in 2016, and ready to take a starring role at the Geneva Motor Show in its brand new upgrade format.
It was a huge expectation for several years, it’s now a reality: the name of the new Alpine will be A110, as a reference for its glorious past. Alpine just unveiled the first two pictures of its brand new model before to meet the public at Geneva.
