The Alpenglow concept car ready to pave the Alpine's future cars

~GREEN & CLEAN~ Efforts to find and apply renewable energy sources are increasingly being carried out by many parties from various fields, including the automotive world. There have been many automakers looking for hydrogen fuel cells to power their future cars, such as Viritech Apricale, made by Viritech and Pininfarina, then Matador Group, a Slovak company also launched a concept car called MH2.

Then there is Toyota, which also exhibits the Toyota GR Yaris H2 powered by a 1.6-liter turbocharged three-cylinder engine fueled by hydrogen. And South Korean automaker Hyundai through the N 2025 Vision Gran Turismo and N Vision 74 concept cars, then there's the Chinese's brand, GAC through a hydrogen-powered MPV concept called the GAC Space Concept.

Because of that, Alpine (known as a performance brand and F1 team supported by the French manufacturer Renault) also intends to be one of the first brands to fully adopt this new technology by revealing its first concept car called the Alpine Alpenglow featured with a new design for the upcoming zero-emission era.

The Alpine Alpenglow concept car is powered by a hydrogen fuel engine, which is filled with two cylindrical hydrogen tanks of unknown size, not only that, from its shape it looks like a single-seater car in the World Endurance Championship (WEC) racing event, by featuring wide fenders encircling the driver's cockpit compartment which is shaped like a dome.

Up front there is a full-width light bar which is bounded by a large triangular section with a broken glass-like lighting effect. This effect is replicated on the back with two vertical lighting elements. There is also a red light strip that runs across the front bumper and in the middle of the car. Then there are also transparent elements that are visible in this concept car, such as the cockpit, wheels, and rear spoiler, and provide a glimpse of the mechanics of this concept car.

In the interior, the Alpenglow gets a geometric steering wheel inspired by the LMP1 race car. The steering wheel features transparent, backlit paddle shifters, as well as buttons that control regenerative braking and track control. There's even a button labeled 'Overtake' on the steering wheel which is claimed to give the car a power boost.
The Alpine Alpenglow concept car has a dimension of five meters long, over two meters wide and less than one meter high, and the automaker claims this concept car is light in weight thanks to the use of recycled carbon fiber. (Picture from: SoyMotor)
As you could be seen, the Alpenlow concept has nearly the same proportions as the WEC racing cars, being just over five meters long, over two meters wide and less than one meter high. Despite its size, Alpine claims this concept car is light in weight thanks to the use of recycled carbon fiber.

Since the Alpine Alpenglow is only a very early concept, it's meant to hint at the Alpine's future cars in general, both road vehicles and racing cars. As a concept that may not be realized in the near future or not even produced, Alpine Alpenglow's main aim is to demonstrate the brand's desire to produce a future product line consisting solely of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles.
By looking and paying attention, even though EVs are currently doing a good job of reducing emissions, unfortunately they are still powered by electricity generates from fossil fuels, so contamination is still generated indirectly. In the other hand, hydrogen fuel cells generate their own electricity in the car by combining hydrogen and air, so there is no pre-contamination period as the energy is self-generated during use.
Furthermore, CEO of Alp ine, Laurent Rossi said that the focus on hydrogen technology was due to the company's strong aspiration to achieve a future marked by clean emissions while also providing the most exciting driving experience. This beautiful hydrogen-powered concept car made its first public appearance at the 2022 Paris Motor Show, and recently this Alpine-made concept car also awarded 'Concept Car of the Year' at the Automobile Awards. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | RENAULT GROUP | HOTCARS | CARSCOOPS | NETCARSHOW ]
