Caterham’s New Lightweight Electric Sports Car Concept Will Debut at Goodwood

Caterham Cars has unveiled an electric sports car concept called Project V, signaling a departure from their traditional lineup. The concept features a roof and doors, which is a departure from Caterham’s usual lightweight design. The sleek and attractive design was created by new chief designer Anthony Jannarelly, with the carbon-fiber body built by Pininfarina.
The Project V concept offers a second row of seats and a minimalist interior with digital displays. It is powered by a single electric motor mounted on the rear axle, delivering 268 hp and capable of accelerating from 0 to 60 mph in under 4.5 seconds, with a top speed of 143 mph. The concept utilizes a 55.0-kWh battery pack, providing an estimated range of 249 miles.
Caterham plans to showcase the Project V concept at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and while production has not been confirmed, if it goes into production, it could arrive by the end of 2025 with an expected starting price below £80,000 (approximately $100,000).
