Caterham might build a Renault-based SUV and also a hatchback

As it turns out, Caterham has big plans for the future. Not long ago, the specialists have announced that aside from the planned sports car, they intend to build together with French carmaker Renault by 2016, they also have two more models in mind, which will be built soon. To be more precise, we are talking about an SUV / crossover, which according to different officials will be huge. The other model is a subcompact / supermini. The carmakers said that both cars which have to be released after 2016 will have a lot of common elements with the Renault connection and will be built mainly for the Asian market. The specialists hope to have the same success the Range Rover Evoque had, but we will have to wait and see, to know how things will go. The engineers will prepare all cars until they reach in a semi-finished state. Then, all will be shipped over to a factory where the process will be completed according to the needs of the market they were built for. The report received from Renault confirmed the previous statement even though according to a spokeswoman; the project belongs to the Caterham brand that has as base a Renault platform which has been designed for the Asian market. The woman also added the fact that there are no immediate plans to extend it to Alpine. We will have to wait and see the two new models planned and only then offer more details. Of course, the two could be based on the models already found on the market or on the future ones. Anyways, these are all the details available on the matter fro now, but do not go very far as more are on their way.
