The Alpine plant in Dieppe is a site dedicated to the production of small series, sports and competition vehicles. Flexible and with little automation, the workshops at the Dieppe plant can accommodate all types of vehicles, as its history shows.
The Dieppe plant is the birthplace of Alpine. The brand made a comeback with the launch of the Alpine A110 in 2017.
