There are a surprisingly high number of companies promising electric hypercars with world-beating performance, but so far only one of them has decades of experience making fast cars—both for the road and track. We’re talking about Lotus, which later this year will commence deliveries of the battery-electric Evija…
Lotus has signed up a few super wealthy individuals. £2.04 million is equal to $3.56 million Canadian, or $2.65 million US.
The new Lotus Evija, an electric hypercar claimed to be “the most powerful production car in the world”, will go into production this summer, with 2020’s production run now sold out.
Lotus has told Autocar that all of the Evijas due to be built this year have already been sold, although it hasn’t given an exact figure.
“With our new factory ready, we are ahead of the pack in the emerging EV hypercar segment and 100% ready for some healthy competition,” said Lotus boss Phil Popham, an indirect reference to the likes of the Pininfarina Battista that have so far remained quiet on sales.
