Developers focused on the construction process of the car rather than aesthetics, designing the car to make assembly as cost-efficient as possible. At the same time, developers also created a new niche as the Alpin is a vehicle that features off-road capability, a compact size, and is environmentally friendly. It also features a mid-engine layout, is capable of climbing terrain at 45 degrees, and is powered by a hybrid drivetrain that consists of a compressed natural gas (CNG) internal combustion engine. Other powertrain options include a full CNG powerplant or a small supercharged petrol engine.
The concept's chassis consists of straight sections, which are made of different materials to guarantee low weight and enable a flexible body concept. This modular design process also makes the car easier to produce as it’s built upon a number of modules rather than individual components. The body features a tall seating position, with space for four, and visibility is improved thanks to a large panoramic glass roof.
