Hendy Group has opened its first Alpine dealership as part of its investment in new facilities
in the south.

Hendy Alpine in Villeneuve St Georges Way in Eastleigh is part of Hendy’s new development
in the town which also houses Renault, Dacia, and Nissan.

The opening coincides with a period of growth for Alpine with plans for a 100% electric range
by the end of 2026 and net-zero carbon production in 2040.

Founded in 1955 by Jean Rédélé, the brand has set itself apart with its French-style sports
cars. In 2018, the brand presented the new A110, a sports car faithful to Alpine's timeless
principles of compactness, lightness, agility and driving pleasure.

The Alpine Business Unit was created in 2021 and became the brand dedicated to
innovative, authentic, exclusive sportscars of the Renault Group, benefiting from the heritage
and craftsmanship of its historic plant in Dieppe and the Alpine Racing and Alpine Cars
teams engineering mastery.

A total of seven new models are planned between now and 2030 to support Alpine growth
and these include the electric, sporty and urban A290 (a B-segment car based on Renault 5
and Renault 4 CMFB-EV platform), which is expected in 2024.

The C-segment Crossover GT will arrive in 2025 and will be manufactured in France at the
Manufacture Alpine Dieppe Jean Rédélé plant.

The all-new A110, Alpine’s heritage and know-how flag-bearer, will be 100% electric by end

In addition, Alpine will launch A110-based roadster and the new A310, a 4-seat sports coupe
together two new D/E segment cars on top of its Dream Garage
