A huge move for Caterham Cars comes in the form of the Project V concept. An electric sports coupé that could see production from 2026 with the aim being to sell 200 units per year.

Based around a new lightweight spaceframe according to Caterham CEO, Bob Laishley, it has a lot to live up to: “It must continue to define the Caterham brand into the electric era.”

Range is said to be around 250 miles, it promises to be the most luxurious Caterham ever complete with Apple CarPlay connectivity. Several years after Caterham left their collaborative project with Alpine, they’ve now unveiled their own sports-tourer.

Power comes from a single permanent magnet synchronous motor producing 268bhp, with a sub-4.5-seconds 0-60mph time, it won’t be a slouch, that’s for sure.

Rather than being a two-seater it actually features a 2+1 arrangement, with a single rear seat.

No pricing details have been announced as yet. We’ll bring more details as we get them. In the meantime visit www.caterhamcars.com ENDS.
