Caterham planning SUV & City car

It’s not just an Alpine Sports car (pictured) that Caterham will sell – it’s an SUV & City car too

We already know that Caterham and Renault are working together to build a new sports car to be marketed as both a Caterham and an Alpine. But there’s already more in development. When we revealed the joint venture between Caterham and Alpine/Renault it was clear that Caterham wanted to develop a broad range of cars with Renault, and now Caterham boss Tony Fernandez has revealed to Reuters there’s a Caterham SUV and Caterham City car in development.

The first Caterham Sport Car is due in 2015/16, and the new SUV and City Car won’t be far behind. They too will be built on Renault platforms with Renault engines at the factory in Dieppe before being shipped to Asia to be finished.

Caterham are aiming to produce and SUV to take on the Range Rover Evoque, with Fernandez saying that “…ff we get the SUV right it will be huge”.

Renault say that although they are working with Caterham on the new SUV and City car, there are no plans to develop similar Alpine models alongside.

But if Tony Fernandez gets his way, which he usually does, and the Caterham SUV and City car are a success, we can’t see Renault not following suit with Alpine versions.
