While the British car brand builds its brand image around the high-performance cars, Lotus is now experimenting with the electric powertrain.
Lotus Evija Configurator Revealed
Earlier, the Evija electric hypercar was introduced under the near-production form. The first pre-production version was assembled at Lotus’ facility in Hethel, United Kingdom, getting ready for the production of Evija. The delivery of this electric hypercar will start by the end of 2020. It is revealed that Lotus will offer only 130 units of the Evija electric hypercar. These hyped cars will not come at a cheap price. In fact, each unit of this car would cost a whopping amount of 2.12 million dollars without additional costs.
The customers are allowed to find their own configuration. A short teaser of the Lotus Evija has given us a glimpse of the configurator. As per the video, the electric hypercar would come with colours like Atomic Red, Solaris Yellow and Carbon Black along with Silver which was used on the prototype car revealed last July. Lotus also provides a special technology called "ray tracing" which will help the users to visualize how the car would appear in a different environment. It will allow users to see how the exterior colour look like in the localized sunlight setting.
Lotus Evija can deliver a remarkable performance
The electric vehicles are usually thought of as underpowered cars but it is not the case for Lotus's full-electric car. The Evija will stay true to its hypercar identity by deriving a soaring power of 1,973 Bhp and an impressive torque of 1,700 Nm from the four electric motors for four wheels. This engine setting allows the car to propel from idle to 100 kmph in less than 3.0 seconds. The maximum speed of this car is 200 mph (approx. 321 kmph).
Lotus has high hope for its new electric car. It is set for entering the Nurburgring lap and aiming to break the record. The current time lap record of 6:44.97 was held by the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.
Since this car’s focal point is its performance, you cannot expect to see a high range to be offered by the Evija. With a 70 kWh battery pack, the Evija is claimed to reach a range of 362 km at the EPA testing cycle. Using the 350-kilowatt DC fast charger, this electric car can be charged to 80 per cent in just 12 minutes.
