Lotus Evija launched by the British carmaker company Lotus, the first fully developed car since the company was bought by the Chinese carmaker group Geely. And this is a stunner all about. Evija Dubbed — pronounced as “E-vi-ya.” It will be able to stand up to some of the fastest cars in the world when production starts in 2020. Just 130 are made in real hypercar fashión and start at 1 million pounds (1,86 million dollars).
There is no doubt that rivals such as Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren take care of what Lotus can now do, and the correct responses will arrive in due course. But at present, the focus is all on Lotus and it’s wonderful to see Colin Chapman’s legendary brand in 1948 succeed in an increasingly competitive segment with so many needs. There is no question that the Evija is an instant game-changer that means the’ first in nature’ or the’ living one.’
The Lotus Evija looks every bit like a hypercar part. Aeronautics and nature are their main inspirations. It is the first highway car for both the main and tumbled beams to have laser lights. Notice also its sharp design, a curved cap that reminds of Lotus ‘ past racing cars and muscular haunches. The Evija has an extremely low ride height of only 4.1 inches, though it is not possible to judge by the pictures.
The amazing style of Evija is not meant to look just beautiful. There are multiple purposes for each component. For instance, take the back quarters. This tunnel concept from Venturi is inspired by endurance racing cars from Le Mans, maximizing airflow through the vehicle and raising the drag at the same time. In order to replicate a jet afterburner, Lotus even added a red LED light to each tunnel. The front splitter for two planes is designed to enhance aerodynamics.
What about mirrors on the side? There’s no notice that no. Why not? Because drag would be harmful to them. Instead, Lotus built the cameras into the front wings, while the roof was another. All pictures appear on three interior screens.
For a car which is as exciting as Evija from the outside, and an equally amazing interior is to be expected. Here you’re not going to be fooled. Enter the Evija through the handle-free dihedral doors and discover Alcantara-padded seats with three-point seatbelts (a four-point unit is optional) and plenty of exposed carbon fiber surfaces. The steering wheel is not the same as a regular highway vehicle. Inspired by LMP and Formula 1, this is the unique form and different integrated controls, including drive modes.
A single digital monitor display shows all key information drivers, including current driving mode, battery charging, and rest of charging. Commodity features are standard such as Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. The Evija’s over-the-air software updates and a chronograph allow drivers to record their lap times. Another one is for Lotus. Lotus has even created a smartphone application that enables owners to monitor Evija’s battery level, drive and even remote control air conditioning worldwide.
All About Power, Performance, and Handling
Gone is common internal combustion that has been replaced by a ridiculously powerful all-electric powertrain built in partnership with Williams Advanced Engineering. Like most EVs, a central location for better weight distribution and center of gravity is the lithium-ion battery of Evija. Behind driver and passenger is this 2000-kW pack. A cumulative outcome of 1,972 hours and 1,253 lb-ft of instant torque is given by just two electric engines. In brief, the Lotus Evija is the most powerful road car in the world. Weight total: 3,703 pounds only.
That driveshaft is driven by four single-speed gearboxes. The maximum speed is above 200 mph and zero to 62 mph occurs in less than 3 seconds. According to Lotus, the total power of any previous Lotus road car is greater at every wheel.
The Evija, suspended for the excellent handling of motorsports. It has three adaptive dampers for extreme track performance and road reassurance in each axle. Pirelli Trofeo R tires are available on the 20 and21-inch magnesium wheels, front and back. Carbon-ceramic disk faces and rears, shown in an advanced braking system.
Evija’s battery technology is probably one of its most impressive features, along with the advanced suspension, electric motors, and high dose carbon fiber construction. It is now ahead because it can accommodate a load of 800 kW. The current standard load is 350 kW. For example, a Tesla Supercharger currently has up to 150 kW and will eventually grow to 350 kW. Just 12 minutes and 18 minutes, a 350 KW unit charges the Evija to 80% capacity and 100%.
The Evija will, however, can charge in just 9 minutes with the final loader of 800 kW.
The Lotus Evija has an eyewatering price tag, as you might have guessed. The base price, which does not include taxes and duties, is 2,.2 million in US Dollars. Purchasers must also make a deposit of $311,000 to demonstrate their honest interests. Customers can customize their cars with a range of colors for the exterior paintings, interior trimmings and various other specifications, limited to only 130 examples. Production will be entirely in the United Kingdom.
The automotive scene is still very fresh for all-electric hypercars. Rimac, with its Concept One and upcoming C Two, is currently the only other major player in this group. The Battista, essentially the C-Two, has also revealed Pininfarina. The base, batteries, electric motors and any other associated hardware offered by Rimac to Pininfarina. Join all hybrid hypercar clubs in the relatively close future for the likes of Ferrari, Lamborghini, and McLaren. The fact is, however, that Lotus beat them.
The majority stake in Lotus had purchased by Geely in 2017. Over the past ten years, Volvo has added everything to its portfolio from the Chinese community to an electric vertical starter and landing business. The company even had earned a reputation for its revived outdated labels before the Evija launch. Like Volvo or the Polestar brand from the Swedish automaker. The Evija is a sign that Geely is still able to swing with the brands he has taken under his wing, despite recent difficulties in the Chinese car market. And what might come next from the new British sports car brand is a great tease.
