Lotus Evija

Dream Catcher

Just before England’s stay at home order went into effect the new manufacturing facility where Lotus will build the Evija all-electric hypercar came to life. The first customer deliveries of the all-electric two-seater will begin in the late summer or early fall. The build space is situated at the brand’s historic home of Hethel, in Norfolk, UK. It has been built trackside, next to Lotus’ storied 2.2-mile circuit which has hosted testing and shake-down sessions with many Formula 1 legends.

The most striking Lotus Evija is the world’s first fully-electric British hypercar, with its unparalleled performance the car sets new standards in terms of advanced EV engineering and design. From every angle, the full carbon fiber bodywork is fabulous and appears shrink-wrapped over the mechanical components.  Taking inspiration from the aeronautics industry, the exterior is a perfectly proportioned blend of fluid forms and crisp lines. This is clearly illustrated by the gently curved but sharp leading edge of the bonnet, which is reminiscent of so many classic Lotus road and race cars.

Cues for the Evija’s surface language was also taken from nature. Russell Carr, Design Director, Lotus Cars, commented: “During the initial design stage we spent many hours studying images of geological forms – rocks that had been carved by nature over the centuries. We believe we’ve captured these beautiful, intriguing and elemental lines within the Evija.”Quite simply, the Lotus Evija is the most powerful series-production road car ever built its exterior. From every angle the full carbon fiber bodywork is stretched taut, appearing shrink-wrapped over the mechanical components.

The Evija is the first Lotus road car to ever feature a full carbon fiber chassis. Molded as a single piece for exceptional strength, rigidity, and safety, the full length of the underside is sculpted to optimize downforce. It includes an integrated air diffuser that extends from under the B-pillars to the rear. The interior of the Lotus Evija is as dramatic as the exterior. Inspired by the technical precision of race car engineering, the dominant characteristic of the cabin is the ‘floating wing’ dashboard which can be glimpsed from outside through the windscreen. The design also echoes the porosity of the exterior.

We can now say that the Lotus Evija is the world’s most powerful production road car thanks to the exceptional power output from its 2,000 kW lithium-ion battery, supplied with its management system by Williams Advanced Engineering.

The battery pack is mounted centrally behind the passenger compartment, and its cover is visible through the glass rear screen. This positioning delivers significant advantages in terms of styling, aerodynamics, packaging, weight distribution, occupant comfort, and dynamic handling. Now the sad news is that Lotus will only hand-build up to 130 examples of the Evija. The first year’s production allocation is already sold but you can still get on the list for 2021. Lotus
