World EXCLUSIVE! Well perhaps not! BUT Lotus Evija technical specifications sheets reveals FINALLY a Top Speed!

https://ibb.co/j3JGy7w

It's a still from a Goodwood video (THANK YOU Frankie and Debby!, LOL!)

But it's 217MPH!. That's MORE than enough you'll not even use that. I was individually expecting more but I don't care anymore.

*Caveat on the sheet it says 305km/h but that's very obviously a typographical error for 350km/h. So, contact Lotus don't bore me!

MPH*

0-60= 2.18
0-100= 3.74
0-130= 5.04
0-150= 6.04
0-170= 7.30
0-180= 8.04
0-186= 8.54 benchmark Lotus claimed 8.6 seconds at launch in 2019 in the UK
0-200= 9.88
0-210= 11.04
0-220= 12.44

Above if transmission and gearing allow it, Lotus WILL NOT confirm this and to my knowledge haven't. Top speed is NEED TO KNOW ACCESS only. It's mapped beyond 250MPH if so need be it. The Aspark Owl has a smaller capacity battery and they claim 400km/h top speed.

*Calculations/Simulations. Subject to my discretion, revised at ANY time.

Factors to consider~

Weather/Humidity
Driver
Tyres
State of Charge

Etc etc all of these make huge changes.

If EVERYTHING equals out accordingly to the above whilst the Bugatti Chiron Supersport is at around 186MPH she'll be THIRTY FOUR MPH up the road!😮

Only time will tell. Verification plus GPS overlays and video.

Quote>"22 December 2009
Aston Martin's One-77 supercar has exceeded 220mph (354km/h) in testing, the company has revealed – making it the fastest road-going Aston ever."

https://www.andrewnoakes.com/blog/aston-one-77-hits-220mph35.html

Quote>"The CCR managed to take the Guinness record for the world’s fastest production car at the Nardo test track in Italy, in February 2005. The CCR reached 388 km/h."

https://www.koenigsegg.com/car/ccr/

So Aston Martin One-77 did 220MPH just over and Koenigsegg did 241MPH just over.

Quote>"The F1 first set a top-speed record in 1993, hitting 231 mph at the Nardo ring in Italy."

https://www.roadandtrack.com/car-culture/classic-cars/videos/a32423/mclaren-f1-top-speed-record-history/

The GOAT hit 231MPH so you've got three speeds to look at.

There's alot of information about the Lotus Evija still missing, dimensions, weight and aerodynamics.

So based on those previous cars and I using the *claimed Pininfarina Battista electronically limited speeds and Rimac Nevera's *claimed top speed so 217MPH and 258MPH as a guide, and specifically what Lotus have stated I'm estimating a 229- 236MPH top speed for the Lotus Evija based on CURRENTLY AVAILABLE data.

Even the mighty LOTUS backed by Chinese's giants Geely cannot meet United States of America homologation processes or rules and regulations, in 2022?

https://www.roadandtrack.com/news/a36255970/lotus-evija-prototype-first-drive/

Quote>"£2m ‘ex-works’ pricetag works out to $2.8 million at current exchange rates and, in the U.S., there will be the added complication of the Evija’s LACK OF FEDERAL HOMOLOGATION, meaning buyers will have to negotiate the complication of “show and display” restrictions."

Now at another juncture, I'll look into specifics of WHY this is so, partly I know it's the lack of physically engineered mirrors and it's rear view mirror is a digital camera.

Again this is NOTHING absolutely NOTHING to do with the engineering or the EXECUTION of SAFETY testing (which I know they've definitely done) and obviously being electric nothing to do with emmisions.

If you look back that latter subject actually stopped Lotus from exporting cars or it was smart air bag systems or both.

It simply highlights that there ARE realities to FULL Federal compliance to rules and regulations that some manufacturers cannot meet.

Koenigsegg did not do this until the Koenigsegg Agera RS, and I've read that in Europe they had small manufacturer exemptions for other reasons regardless even then, their homologation manager David Tugas stated so, and I believe Pagani for the Huyara in the very early years were REFUSED exemptions!

So all in all, GTFOH with any trash taking the Americans~ because it's factually incorrect and disinformation.

Now you know why the Bugatti Veyron, in part never turned a profit.

Lotus "Evija" SUV to be launched soon. And it's quoted 0-60MPH is barely slower because BOTH are electric!

https://www.carmagazine.co.uk/spy-shots/lotus/lotus-suv-crossover/

Quote>"Type 132 is a Cayenne-sized electric SUV with twin motors drawing power from underfloor lithium-ion batteries rated between 92kWh and a mighty 120kWh. An 800-volt architecture brings the promise of fast charging, while cutting-edge hardware and a standard-fit 5G router will work to futureproof the package via speedy over-the-air updates.

This will be the first car on the Lotus Premium architecture, a platform able to accommodate wheelbases between 2889mm and 3100mm initially. Type 132 will be offered with two power outputs from launch; neither will be slow. Mention numbers like a handy 700bhp and 0-62mph in under 3.0 seconds to those close to the project and you get encouraging answers, particularly on the straight-line performance: ‘That would be a reasonable target to shoot for. Certainly, it’s technically possible with this package,’ says one insider."

Lotus has CONFIRMED it tested top speeds at Nardo in December 2020!

https://media.lotuscars.com/en/blog/lotus-evija-on-test-%E2%80%93-simultaneous-dynamic-testing-at-opposite-ends-of-europe%E2%80%A6-and-very-different-speeds.html

Quote>"James Hazlehurst, lead vehicle dynamics engineer on Evija and part of the test team at Nardo, said the car felt very secure as it lapped the iconic 7.8-mile circular track. “All of the aerodynamic design work on the car, everything we’ve done on our full vehicle simulator back at Hethel tuning the springs and dampers, all the powertrain development – it came together as we’d anticipated at Nardo and we’re really happy with the results.”

Now QUITE what those specific results were is yet to be ascertained, Lotus are not saying. But we CAN speculate as to previous cars that have verified speeds there.

I can think of a front engined GT, and a mid engined hypercar straight off the bat.

But top speed this top speed that, who cares too much? It's the acceleration I want validation on! And cornering forces and dynamics and laptimes, because WE ARE LOTUS!

Lotus belongs to the Chinese. = Made In China = covered up by England in writing.

All their combustion engines come from Japan / Toyota Camry family car.

This is another English Automotive Beggar.

Lotus global sales highest in a decade last year.

https://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/business-dealership%2C-sales-and-marketing/lotus-global-sales-highest-decade-last-year

Quote>"Lotus sold 1710 new cars worldwide in 2021, a 24% year-on-year increase and its best performance in a decade.

In the final year of production for its Elise, Exige and Evora models, Lotus boosted global sales by 332 units over 2020, recording substantial growth in all key markets.

In its UK home market, for example, sales soared by 24%, while it noted a 37% increase in Belgium – its best performance in Europe – and a huge 111% uptick in the US and Canada."

Lotus is doing very well!, good! And the destroyer nears.

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.

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.

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.
