Many car brands also offer Alpine players without their own branding or co-branding. Electronics made by Alpine can usually be found in the more expensive categories of brands such as the BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes-Benz E and S Series, as well as GL SUVs.
Alpine offers a particularly wide range of car-specific instruments, which is due to Alpine's very good cooperation with various car brands in contract manufacturing.
