The thrilling next chapter of one of the greatest automotive stories ever told. The Lotus Evija continues a rich, 70-year tradition of iconic, game-changing road and racing cars. A bloodline steeped in daring innovation and radical thinking takes another revolutionary leap forward. Unreal performance enabled by electricity. Developments made possible by years of pioneering heritage. Forged by British engineering, created for the drivers.
Evija breathes the air it goes through. Made to be porous, born to be driven. Incredible downforce achieved without any compromise. The Lotus Evija (pronounced eh-VIE'-ya) aims to push the boundaries of modern hypercar technology. While many rivals offer hybrid powertrains, this model commits to being fully electric, and it comes with an ultrafast charging setup. Its exterior design takes cues from race cars built to dominate the track. The car's sheetmetal includes elements such as butterfly doors and a large rear wing. Best of all, however, is what this car offers from its four electric motors:
Pure beauty. Elegant simplicity. Carved by the air it flows through. Evija is a functional masterpiece. Tailored lightweight luxury. Void of the unnecessary. Attention to detail shown in every single aspect. This Lotus comes in a single trim that offers enough equipment to meet the needs of discerning hypercar shoppers. Staggered magnesium wheels, sized 20 inches in front and 21 inches in back, keep this coupe in touch with the pavement. Laser lights brighten the path ahead. Lotus claims that the Evija is the first production car to employ laser lights for both main and dipped beams. The car's sculpted carbon-fiber body travels close to the ground, with a ride height of just 4.1 inches. Drawing inspiration from Le Mans race cars, Lotus pierced each rear-quarter panel by a Venturi tunnel, which optimizes air flow by sending it through the body shell.
The star of the show is the Evija's muscle-bound electric powertrain. Motivation is provided by a team of four electric motors, and Lotus claims te Evija generates a total output of 1972 horsepower and 1254 lb-ft of torque. the Evija weighs just over 3700 pounds, making it supposedly the lightest EV hypercar ever to enter production. The Evija can reach a top speed of more than 200 mph, and Lotus expects it to sprint to 62 mph in under three seconds. The car's performance can be customized via five driving modes: Range, City, Tour, Sport, and Track. The Evija is equipped with technology that's designed to make charging the battery almost as quick as getting a fill-up at the gas pump. The car takes just 12 minutes for an 80 percent charge, and a full charge takes a mere 18 minutes. This Lotus hypercar is able to travel up to 250 miles between charges.
