Electric supercar Evija will be the first truly new model of Lotus since 2008 and will be based on a carbon fibre, monocoque frame that will be manufactured in Hethel, away from the company’s main production line.
According to the information so far, particular emphasis has been placed on the aerodynamics of the car, with two large tunnels running its length on the floor and the shape of a drop to ensure optimum airflow around the bodywork.
The battery will be positioned behind the passenger compartment and will be powering a powertrain that has evolved from Williams Advanced Engineering. Lotus has confirmed that it will produce just 130 Evija, slightly increasing planned production as “several hundred prospective owners expressed their interest in the new car”, while its price is expected to reach 7-digit Numbers due to exclusivity, performance, technology and philosophy.
