Lotus thinks they can SMASH the Nurburgring record "comfortably".

https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a28427094/lotus-evija-nurburgring/

Quote>"As we suspected, the Evija has indeed been designed to be able to set a new production EV record at the Nürburgring Nordschleife in Germany. We spoke to platform engineer Louis Kerr at the car's official unveiling in London."

Quote>"but the NIO's 6:45, set in 2017, is still the fastest time from what is nominally a production EV."

Quote>""Yes, we are thinking of the Nordschleife," he confirmed. "We think we'll be COMFORTABLY quicker than the NIO EP9 around there."

Well the current productions record outright is Porsche with a time of 6.43 with the modified Manthey GT2RS. That's only 2 seconds quicker than the NIO? So I don't know what Lotus class as "comfortably" beat the current EV record time, but you'd think 2 seconds was a minimum?

Quote>"Kerr also said that the Evija's spectacular acceleration figures are effectively WORST-case scenarios, meaning that the zero-to-60-mph time of the final version could well be closer to two seconds than three, and time could also come from the sub-nine-second zero-to-186-mph time being claimed for the car."

So there you have it. That's about as OFFICIAL as you're going to get for acceleration metrics too. I've nothing else to state on that matter. It's been discussed below with Sourced press materials.

Dynamically it's a Lotus so this would elevate it above it's rivals. And if their aspirations prove verified at the Nurburgring and other racetracks then suddenly an absolute top speed is redundant, but it looks like they've achieved that anyway.

Lotus have said 0-300km/h in 8.6 seconds. I know they have, and it's 4.5 seconds quicker than the verified time for the Bugatti Chiron!

Can the Evjia do it? Any of it? Well yes it's possible. They have to PROVE it.

This one's got me just as excited as the Aston Martin hybrids.

She's a stunner too! ;)

Quote>"We suspect Lotus is seriously sandbagging when it comes to the Evija’s acceleration, with 0-60mph taking 'under three seconds' and the top speed being 'over 200mph'. We wouldn’t be surprised to see the former closer to two seconds, and the latter closer to 250 than 200."

Well using Lotuses own press materials we already did! SIX months ago for acceleration for 0-60MPH!

LOL!

0-200MPH in a calculated 11.5 seconds. Actually I calculated it quicker but left in a slight margin for error and other causal factors.

The only question remaining is the top speed of the car. To be honest it's more of a cornering than speed demon but still 400km/h would have been nice.

Lotus are doing very SERIOUSLY impressive engineering behind the scenes. But then Lotus Engineering always has. Secretly.

Anyway even I forget to give them credit. And that's unacceptable. Aston Martin and more so McLaren hog the headlines and airwaves. Which they absolutely and resolutely SHOULD but in a "trinity" of sorts by which I mean to rate all three plus also Jaguar. Hell even Rolls Royce and Bentley.

It's easy to forget what this little Isle produces. No more.

https://www.xtrac.com/ground-breaking-gearbox-designs-for-an-energy-efficient-future/

Quote>"The latest addition to Xtrac’s energy-efficient ILEV family is the P1320 – a single-speed epicyclic transmission with an integrated high performance electric motor, capable of a maximum speed of 17,000rpm with a peak input torque of 425Nm. Coupled with a mass of just 12.5kg, this high-power density solution has been chosen by Lotus for their revolutionary new hyper EV, the Evija, which required a tightly packaged EDU (consisting of transmission, motor and inverter) to power each wheel, resulting in a total vehicle power output of 2,000PS (1,470kW), making it the world’s most powerful series production road car."

Xtrac are OEM gearbox manufacturer's so the ENTIRE drivetrain electrial architecture, literally EVERYTHING has been designed and manufactured by English engineers. And I just proved it.

Quote>"Developed in partnership with Formula E battery maker Williams Advanced Engineering (WAE)."

The Lotus Evija batteries were developed in partnership with Formula One legends Williams. Until things went sour and Lotus brought it in house OEM. We English can develop our own electrical architecture from A to Z without anyone else.

Quote>"Two high-power density e-motors draw in power from the battery pack ad these motors employ silicon carbide inverters and epicyclic transmission on each axle of the four-wheel-drive powertrain. INTEGRAL POWERTRAINS LTD is the provider for the motors and inverters."

The amount of absolute crap I've had the displeasure of reading today has absolutely stunned me.

Regardless Integral Powertrains Ltd are OEM suppliers for the electric motors and inverters for the Lotus Evija. And yes they are English.

Lotus Evija Press Package

"Further performance figures include acceleration from 100-200 km/h in less than THREE seconds, and 200-300 km/h in less than FOUR seconds."

"0-100 km/h= Under THREE seconds
0-300 km/h= Under NINE seconds."

That means 0-100km/h= TWO seconds accordingly to Lotuse's own official published acceleration figures!

So there you go. And this IS absolutely possible as the Rimac Nevera has verified most of it.

So just to confirm>

0-100km/h= 2 seconds
0-200km/h= 5 seconds
0-300km/h= 9 seconds

Makes ALOT more sense now too.

I'm very happy with THEIR claims. Now onto top speed calculations. *Re-published as so many people are still confused by Lotus published figures.

So let's leave metrics alone for awhile, yes even the SEXY ones. So just a reminder we have in the next 12 months from the HYPERCAR centre of the universe (ROFL) got either confirmed or absolutely confirmed>

Aston Martin Valkyrie
Aston Martin Vantange V12
Lotus Emira
Lotus Evija
Mclaren Artura

That's an incredible Supercar/Hypercar mix. Plus the future>

Aston Martin Valkyrie Spyder
Aston Martin Valkyrie AMR Pro
Aston Martin DBS AMR
Aston Martin Valhalla
Aston Martin Vision Vanquish. Maybe?

I'm absolutely NO idea what the hell Jaguar is upto or doing but I'll look at it over the next period. The F type is cute AF though.

DOESN'T all that make you WANT to listen to God save the Queen?

Maybe I should link it?

Oo

Just watched the LIVE telecast from Hethel. Stunningly beautiful car particularly the frontal aspect.

Plus AMG MERCEDES engine and DCT!

I'll be catching up with ALL the technical specifications over the next few days Englishmen (like me) are going to LOVE IT! Mr JWW will be ALL over it!

Lotus never did any good with ICE cars, doubt these chuffer bollocks brits can succeed by going all electric.

The Evija is such an ugly design, who even though of designing it ? Some wanker at a fish n cheap's' restaurant ?

Lotus Emira UNVIELING at 7.30 PM BST for those of us here in England. Google appropriate times elsewhere.

And also Lotus have confirmed that power and torque figures for all electric Lotus Evija will be HIGHER than first thought as efficiencies have occurred.

So good news all around!

Lotus= Lot's of Technology usually Scientific.

Hahahahahahaha!

Lotus EMIRA is dropping SOON! It'll be very interesting comparing it to Ferrari Maserati and McLaren. But it's possibly a class down.

300-400km/h in 20 seconds. A prediction.

That's IF it gets to 400km/h in the FIRST place! Hahahahahahaha!

Lotus claim that the Evija will accelerate from 200-300 km/h in 3 sec flat. The Porsche 919 Evo does it in 4.2 sec, F1 and MotoGP in the 4.5-4.8 sec range and a 2200hp Huracan does it in 3.4 sec. I'm calling bullshit on that claim

Well no Evija till mid 2021 due to Covid. In fact Chinese auto giant Geely has made it possible by injecting almost $3billion into Lotus.

According to Car Advice quoting Lotus the Evija will go from "zero to 100km/h in a touch under three seconds, while 0-200km/h takes just under six seconds". That means, according to Lotus claiming it will do 0-300 km/h in 9 sec, that it will accelerate from 200-300 km/h in under 4 secs? Yeah right i'd like to see that lol

I don't see the point to a 3,704 lb (1680kg) Lotus.

From https://www.lotuscars.com/about-lotus/

"By remaining true to the ethos of founder Colin Chapman, Lotus stands alone as a brand dedicated to pure drivers’ cars. Innovative engineering, cutting-edge technologies and advanced materials ensure that every Lotus proves the value of achieving performance through light weight.

Reducing mass remains the most effective means of achieving a true connection between driver, car and road – a quality shared by every car to proudly wear the Lotus badge."

Quotes from Colin Chapman

"Adding power makes you faster on the straights, subtracting weight makes you faster everywhere."

"Simplify, then add lightness"

Then make a 3704 lb electric hypercar with boatload's of electronic features.

just seen new pics of it, looks pretty cool. But I'm afraid the power figure is unrealistic and it will be heavier than the claims...
