Lotus blossoms: Carmaker offers its 320kmph fully-electric supercar for €1.8m

Lotus announces Evija EV hypercar<br> Lotus showcases first pure electric sports car
Russell Knight | 18 July, 2019, 22:12

Lotus, aiming to reestablish itself as a global engineering and sports auto powerhouse under its new parent, Chinese automaker Geely, is introducing a new halo, the Evija full-electric hypercar with almost 2,000 hp. This system is the lightest, most energy dense, electric power package ever fitted to a road auto.

Lotus, it seems, have beaten the two (and the rest of the world) in making an all-electric hypercar.

LOTUS Cars' first all-electric hypercar, the Evija, has a target power output of 1471kW, which - if achieved as planned - will make it the most powerful production vehicle in the world.

Evidence of the what powers the Evija isn't yet available, but Lotus is developing it with Williams Advanced Engineering, the team behind the powertrains in the all-electric Formula E motorsport series.

Lotus Cars is preparing for an expansion under Asian owner Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd that could see the iconic British automaker open a second United Kingdom factory and target new markets by building higher-volume models in China. This highly efficient system is the lightest, most energy dense, electric power package ever fitted to a road auto.

He and Michael Stumo, whose 24-year-old daughter, Samya, died on the same flight, testified before the U.S. Earlier this month, Boeing said it would provide an initial investment of $100-million to the families.

The Evija weighs just 1,680 kg. "The Evija is a true Lotus in every sense - it has been developed with an unwavering passion to push boundaries, to explore new ways of thinking and to apply ground-breaking technologies". "It will re-establish our brand in the hearts and minds of sports vehicle fans and on the global automotive stage".

Over the next 10 years, Lotus plans to roll out its "Vision 80" plan, which Popham says "contains a commitment to be 'for the driver, ' first, last and always". The company has confirmed the production of the Evija will begin there during 2020. The company, however, continued to release updated versions of its existing sports cars and in 2017, it finally got the boost it needed when Chinese automaker Geely bought a majority stake. The powerhouse of an engine will be powered by a 70kw/h battery, which the company projects to have a 250-mile range and will be able to be fully charged in just 18 minutes.

The Lotus Evija has five driving modes, Range, City, Tour, Sport and Track, each with their receptive specs.

Just 130 examples of the Evija will be built, with a refundable £250,000 deposit securing a build slot. Staying within Lotus's traditions, the Evija is slightly smaller than its comparables at 4.46 meters (175.6 inches) long, 2 m (78.7 in) wide and 1.12 m (44.1 in) tall.

The technology seeks to address one of the biggest complains of the users that electric cars are a hassle when recharging.
