Car brands starting with c list: Lotus Cars Boss Confirms There’s Life in the Esteemed Brand Yet

Before the Geely takeover, Lotus had started work on what was meant to be a crossover, which was to be produced in conjunction with little-known Chinese maker Goldstar Heavy Industrial. The project got as far as advanced design studies and the signing of a joint-venture agreement, but the Geely takeover ended that deal. After that, the expectation wa that a Lotus SUV would be switched to an existing group platform, most likely the Compact Modular Architecture that underpins the Volvo XC40 . But Popham gives a definite no on that one, saying that the brand will need to have significant input into the architecture of any future Lotus SUV.
