The Lotus brand factory, which was built in the British city of Hetel to release the new Evija electric hypercar, is ready to start collecting the first concepts.

The debut Lotus model, which has an electric powertrain, is ready for production: although the production of a hypercar with a capacity of 2000 hp starts only in the summer, the company already intends to collect pre-production copies of the electric car.

The new plant was built at the headquarters of the brand in British Hetel, not far from the company’s test track. The construction of the enterprise involved approximately 20 specialized contractors and over 50 specialists.

 At the new site, Lotus will release 130 units of electric hypercars, all of which have long been sold out. According to brand leader Phil Popham, the new assembly plant is one of the most modern and high-tech in the world.

An electric hypercar can accelerate to the first “hundred” in less than 3 seconds and accelerate to a maximum of 340 km / h. The electric car will be able to drive 400 km on a single charge in the WLTP cycle.
