The whole world seems to be slowly shifting towards all-electric vehicles. This has caused many more manufacturers to enter the EV game, and for the United Kingdom, Lotus is giving us their first EV hypercar. While we have seen a handful of these high performance EV’s before, few have come from companies with the same history and credibility as Lotus. Let’s hope they just are the first of many to get their foot in the door.
The Evija Has Got All The Right Curves and Numbers
Lotus has always produced extremely distinct looking cars. While many companies produce people movers that blend in, Lotus gives us performance that looks like the kind of car an alien would drive. This new hypercar still has that unique and refreshingly unfamiliar look. The front end is somewhat reminiscent of the Lamborghini Sesto Elemento shape but in a very new and original way. Every curve, crease, and vent has very clearly been sculpted in a wind tunnel and not by artists, which typically produce the most satisfying designs. With a great looking car, you’d hope the performance would back it up- and this one does.
Lots of performance EV’s have been criticized for their weight. Lotus puts lightness above all else in their cars, so the Evija has fixed this issue. This car weighs just 3,704 lbs. This may sound somewhat heavy for a supercar, but bear in mind the Telsa Model 3 tips the scales at over 4,000 lbs. For an EV, this is no weight at all. To make things even better the car is going to feel like an absolute rocket ship with nearly 2,000 horsepower. This will accelerate well past 200 miles per hour- and most likely get their extremely quickly. While we don’t know much else yet, we don’t really need any more to be sold.
Lotus has been in the business of making good looking, unique, and lightweight performance vehicles for a while now. It should serve as no surprise that their first all-electric attempt, the Lotus Evija, ticks all these same boxes. Buy Here
