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...


User avatar

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.

Chinese funded Lotus hypercar with Latvian name. Good.

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!
