As per Lotus Cars:
Like all Lotus cars throughout the brand's storied 71-year history,
the Evija has been precision-engineered to deliver an outstanding
driving experience both on the road and track. It is the most
dynamically accomplished model ever built by the company, setting
new standards for Lotus driving performance. Above all else, it is
'For The Drivers'.
As a name, Evija (pronounced 'E-vi-ya') means 'the first in
existence' or 'the living one'. It is highly appropriate; Lotus has
an unquestionable reputation for its pioneering approach in both
automotive and motorsport.
The Evija marks the start of an exciting new chapter in the history
of an iconic and much-loved British sports car brand. It is the
first hypercar from Lotus, and the company's first model with an
electrified powertrain. As the first completely new car to be
launched under the stewardship of Geely - the world's fastest
growing automotive group - its significance cannot be
Exclusivity and desirability go hand in hand in the world of
hypercars, and the Evija is blessed with an abundance of both.
Production is limited to not more than 130 examples, making it
among the most exclusive cars ever launched. It's a figure set in
tribute to the car's project code, Type 130. Lotus road and race
cars throughout the brand's seven decades of success have been
assigned a Type number, and the Evija is no exception.
Hethel, close to the historic city of Norwich in the east of
England, UK, has been the home of Lotus since 1966. The company has
confirmed production of the Evija will begin there during 2020.
As well as tempting the world's hypercar buyers, the car will act
as a halo for the rest of the Lotus range - the renowned Elise,
Exige and Evora - the Evora GT for the USA market. It will do the
same for a range of eagerly anticipated new Lotus performance
models to come.
Speaking at the unveiling in London, Lotus Cars CEO Phil Popham
said: "The Lotus Evija is a car like no other. It will re-establish
our brand in the hearts and minds of sports car fans and on the
global automotive stage. It will also pave the way for further
visionary models." He added: "This is another amazing moment in the
history of our company. The Evija is a true Lotus in every sense -
it has been developed with an unwavering passion to push
boundaries, to explore new ways of thinking and to apply
A stunning piece of contemporary automotive design, the Evija
features a dramatic Venturi tunnel through each rear quarter,
giving it a truly breath-taking presence. Russell Carr, Design
Director, Lotus Cars, said: "We studied how Le Mans race cars use
air flow creatively to go over, under and around the vehicle, but
also through it. This concept of 'porosity' is key to the Evija and
has enabled us to create a timeless design with exceptional amounts
The Evija signals the start of a contemporary new design language
for Lotus, which will evolve and reappear on future
high-performance cars. Illustrative of the innovative thinking and
ingenuity which has always been part of the Lotus DNA, the Evija is
a technical tour de force. It continues the legendary Lotus
bloodline that's rich in firsts and technical game-changers, both
in the automotive and motorsport sectors. While it is a glimpse of
the future from Lotus, it remains true to the company's DNA and the
guiding principles of founder Colin Chapman, who built the first
Lotus in 1948.
The Evija is the first Lotus road car to feature a one-piece carbon
fibre monocoque chassis. The cabin, from the fully adjustable
race-style seats to the multi-function steering wheel, is the very
pinnacle of motorsport-inspired road car design and technology.
At the heart of the Evija is an ultra-advanced all-electric
powertrain. It has been developed by technical partner Williams
Advanced Engineering, famed for success in motorsport, from Formula
One to electrifying the first four seasons of Formula E. The
battery pack is mid-mounted immediately behind the two seats and
supplies energy directly to four powerful e-motors. This highly
efficient system is the lightest, most energy dense, electric power
package ever fitted to a road car. With a target weight of just
1,680 kg (3,700 lbs), it will be the lightest pure electric
hypercar ever to go into series production.
Matt Windle, Executive Director, Sports Car Engineering, Lotus
Cars, said: "Every element of the Evija has been meticulously
analysed and validated. Precision engineering is nothing without
human engagement, and that's why technology with soul is the
benchmark for this and every Lotus."
Engineered for precise and sustained performance, the Evija has
five driving modes - Range, City, Tour, Sport and Track. It can
race from 0-62 mph (0-100 km/h) in under three seconds and
accelerate to a top speed of more than 200 mph (0-320 km/h).
Active aerodynamics are deployed in the form of a rear spoiler,
which elevates from its resting position flush to the upper
bodywork, and an F1-style Drag Reduction System (DRS). Both are
deployed automatically in Track mode, though can be deployed
manually in other modes. Torque-vectoring, enabled by the four
e-motors, provides exceptional dynamic response and agility on the
road. This fully automatic, self-adjusting system can instantly
distribute power to any combination of two, three or four wheels
within a fraction of a second. In Track mode the ability to add
more power to individual wheels enables the radius of corners to be
tightened, potentially reducing lap times. The Lotus Evija is
equipped with ESP stability control to ensure safety in all road
conditions, with further grip provided by the four-wheel drive
system. A pure steering feel - a vital ingredient of every Lotus -
is assured via an electro-hydraulic system.
A REVOLUTION IN CHARGING:
Not only does the Lotus Evija feature the world's most powerful
automotive drivetrain, it also boasts the world's fastest charging
battery. Thanks to the partnership with Williams Advanced
Engineering, the battery has the ability to accept an 800kW charge.
Although charging units capable of delivering this are not yet
commercially available, when they are it will be possible to fully
replenis...for more information please contact the seller.
