Take a tour of the stunning Lotus Evija hypercar

Petersen Automobile Museum has published a video tour of the British hypercar Lotus Evija. About the car says Russell Carr, head of design at Lotus Evija.

With the approach to the start of mass production of the Lotus Evija electric hypercar, which should begin this summer, foreign journalists increasingly began to see test prototypes of the new product. We know that the stunning Lotus Evija will be released in a limited edition of only 130 copies, and we also know that when ordering a car worth 1.5-2 million euros, you can order everything that only comes to mind.

Thanks to a special video from the Petersen Automobile Museum, you and I can take a virtual walk through the British hypercar.

And who better explain everything than Russell Carr, head of design at Lotus Evija. Make no mistake, the Lotus Evija should be an extreme electric car in absolutely every way, but still it inherits some of the key Lotus design principles. Yes, this is a very important car for the British automaker, but it also serves as a “testing ground” for new technologies that will greatly affect the further development of Lotus and future models of the company. The design of the hypercar continues to reflect the efficiency, aerodynamics and driving dynamics that are an integral part of Lotus design.

Evija’s uniform also relies on timeless military aircraft and design elements, and even contains hints of the sci-fi possibilities of using special cameras that will serve as a mirror for the driver. The back is not like any other car that we saw a long time ago, and the lighting is absolutely magnificent. The LOTUS logo on the back has an illuminated logo, which is also used as a reversing light.

Lotus Evija will be equipped with four electric motors producing a total power of 1,973 horsepower, and acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take less than 3 seconds. A speed mark of 200 km / h can be overcome in just 6 seconds.
