Earlier there were reports of Proton and Lotus joining hands to work on the global small car, where the former would concentrate on mass market products and the latter would come out with the performance oriented variants. However Proton underwent a change of ownership and the joint venture has not been publicized since then.

Proton was also in talks with Mitsubishi to produce the global small car, though no details have been available thereafter.
