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...

The power figure seems to be over the top. Will it be permanent 2000 ps or just for moderately short bursts? Are they measuring electric power properly or exaggerating the numbers? How long can the battery last at 2000 ps before it a) overheats b) runs out?

2000 ps can power a small freight train.

Lotus usually make not so powerful, but light cars. Now they created evija, Its weights 1680 kgs and its very powerful! I think Romano Artioli came into their mind becouse he was the owner of Bugatti and Lotus to, from 1993!
