British manufacturer has applied for the use of the name Evija.

Lotus has applied for the use of the Evija brand. Most likely, this is the name of the 1000-hp electric hypercar, previously known under the index Type 130.

The application for registration of the brand Evija was received from Lotus on June 19 – a month before the official premiere of the Type 130 hypercar, which will be held on July 16. There is a possibility that the company can use the name for any other car from its line, but the proximity of the launch of the hypercar is an indication that the name Evija is intended for it.

Lotus Type 130 Hypercar is the first completely new model of a British company in the last decade. The concept is based on carbon fiber monocoque, and the power plant is an electric motor with a capacity of 1000 horsepower, designed specifically for this model by engineers at Williams Advanced Engineering.

The battery pack will be installed behind the passenger seats and covered with a transparent cover, which will allow to see the “stuffing” of the hypercar, the power reserve is expected to be about 402 kilometers. The official premiere will be held on July 16 at a special event in London, and the first deliveries of Lotus are scheduled for 2020.

Total released 130 copies of Evija. Machines will be assembled by hand at the Lotus plant in Norfolk, UK.
