Lotus may begin work on a new model this year, most likely an SUV

The CEO of Lotus believes that if the company decides to fund a completely new model line, it should be an SUV. Jean-Marc Gales, Lotus' CEO, told Reuters at the Geneva motor show that the company's board will make a decision this year on whether to produce an all-new four- or five-door model. Gales said that he's "bit torn between an SUV and a four-door sports car, but in the end I can see that the SUV has the bigger market".

Skoda chairman confirms seven-seat SUV for Australia

The long-awaited 2016 Skoda seven-seat SUV will be sent to Australia “for sure”, according to global chairman Winfried Vahland. The Czech-made family hauler — also to be made in China for that market — will give the company a presence in the high-volume large SUV segment, and will offer buyers a European alternative to rivals such as the Hyundai Santa Fe.
