Inspired by fighter jets and with a sky-high £2million price-tag to match, legendary British sports car maker Lotus is accelerating back into the limelight with a new all-electric hypercar that aims to be the most powerful production vehicle on the planet.
With a top speed in excess of 200mph, the new Lotus Evija accelerates from rest to 62mph in under three seconds and up to 186mph in under nine seconds.
Production starts next year and will be limited to just 130 cars. It has a claimed all electric range of 250 miles and can be charged using a fast-charger in just 18 minutes.
Described by Lotus as the ‘the world’s first pure electric British hypercar’. Its 2,000 horsepower means it has more pulling power at each wheel than the total power of any other Lotus road car ever produced to date.
