DISCUSS: @lotuscars just announced details on the Evija, aiming to beBritain’s first all-electric hypercar and targeting 1972 horsepower (not a typo).
It’s full carbon chassis means it’s weighing in at 3700 pounds. In addition to the ‘add lightness’ doctrine, all sorts of aerodynamic wizardry would mean 0-180mph under 9 seconds.
The electric powertrain with 4 motors was developed alongside their compatriots at Williams, making for a cool collaboration for the British legends. On the inside, the roof console tributes a similar feature found in the Lotus Esprit. The price? Looking around £1.5-£2.1M, before taxes. Production is set for 130 Evijas starting in 2020.
Lotus is ambitiously aiming high. Let’s chat, what are your initial thoughts? • Full details on Petrolicious.com
