All of the models have already been sold out, with the first customer delivery expected to take place in 2023.
Lotus Evija has entered production, and the electric hypercar’s final specs are said to be higher than initially promised.
The British car brand announced that the hypercar comes with four electric motors, which produce a combined output of 2,011 BHP and 1,703 Nm; making the Lotus Evija the most powerful production car in the world. This is higher than Lotus’ originally promised figure of 1,973 BHP.
The improved power figures help the Lotus Evija accelerate from 0-100 km/h in under 3 seconds and 0-299 km/h in less than 9 seconds. Lotus claims that the Evija’s top speed is restricted to 349 km/h.
The Evija comes with a 93 kWh battery, which is said to offer 402 km of range under normal driving. The hypercar’s battery can be charged to 80% in just 18 minutes using a 350 kW DC fast charger.
The Lotus Evija comes with a carbon-fibre monocoque and body, race-inspired suspension and magnesium wheels. All of which help reduce its weight to 1,886 kg.
To mark the start of production, Lotus unveiled a special edition Evija Fittipaldi – celebrating 50 years since Emerson Fittipaldi became the F1 Championship in 1972 with the Lotus Type 72.
Lotus will build only 130 examples of the Evija (including the 8 Evija Fittipaldi editions). All of the models have already been sold out, with the first customer delivery expected to take place in 2023.
