The Lotus brand company, built in Hetel, Norfolk, UK, to launch the new Evija electric hypercar, is ready to begin assembling the first prototypes.

The first Lotus model with an electric power plant is ready for production: although the production of a 2000-horsepower hypercar will begin only in the summer, the plant is already planning to begin assembling pre-production copies of the electric car. The new company was built at the headquarters of the brand in British Hetel next to the test track of the company. The construction of the plant involved 20 specialized contractors and more than 50 experts.

At the new site, Lotus will release 130 copies of the electric hypercar, all of which have long been sold out. Brand head Phil Popham said the new assembly plant is one of the most modern and high-tech in the world. The Evija electric hypercar can accelerate from zero to 100 kilometers per hour in less than three seconds and reach a top speed of 340 kilometers per hour. The range on one battery charge is 400 kilometers in a WLTP cycle.
