Caterham owner Tony Fernandez has confirmed plans of a lineup expansion which will include a crossover and a subcompact model.

Caterham's assault will kick off with a proprietary version of the Renault Alpine which will be revealed as a concept next year. After the production model arrives in 2016, Caterham will launch additional models as a method to become a global brand.

With the crossover they want to emulate the success of the Range Rover Evoque, while a subcompact model aims to boost sales even further. These two cars will ride on Renault platforms and will be developed primarily for Asian markets.

As far as Caterham’s Alpine is concerned, the model is rumored to get a 1.6-liter turbocharged engine developing around 300 bhp (224 kW) and could also feature F1-derived kinetic energy recovery system (KERS).
