British-based car design brand Lotus is delivering an up-close and personal viewing of their nearly completed hypercar, the Evija. This 2000 PS all-electric hypercar continues Lotus’ “E” naming legacy — Evija stands for “the first in existence” — which notes this as being Lotus’ first electric car and its first hypercar.
Details about the Evija: the world’s most powerful series-production road car; comes equipped with figures such as 0-60 MPH in under three seconds; 0-186 MPH in under nine seconds and a top speed of more than 200 MPH and that’s just to name a few features. It also happens to be able to charge it’s battery to capacity in under ten minutes and thanks to an output of 2,000 kW, the Evija will be good for 250 miles of range.
Phil Popham, CEO of Lotus Cars said in a press release,
With our new factory ready, we are ahead of the pack in the emerging EV hypercar segment and 100% ready for some healthy competition.
This highlights the newly designed factory Lotus has built in Hethel, UK, where the Evija was developed alongside its esteemed 2.2-mile-long race track. The factory itself was built to enhance the production process of each car, focusing on proving a space that can control the necessary power, data and compressed air systems of each model.
