What is the 1973-horsepower Lotus Evija electric hypercar capable of?November 22, 2019
As part of their short video, the guys from the British brand Lotus showed us what the latest hypercar of the automaker, equipped with a 1973-horsepower electric motor, is capable of.
By the first half of the next decade, the British automaker – the company Lotus, is going to introduce several new models, including a sports crossover.
But before a significant update of the current lineup, the company plans to begin production of an all-electric Evija hypercar, which will become the flagship for the brand. The model will arrive on the conveyor next year. The novelty was presented in mid-July of this year, and now it’s time to see it in action – the automaker showed a video, in which we are given a look at the camouflaged prototype hypercar.
It is reported that before us is the second engineering prototype, built by Lotus, which is rumored to be tested on the Top Gear track at the Dunsfold aerodrome in Surrey.
The video lasts only about a minute, and shows us a lot of frames that are constantly alternating with each other, but it’s nice to see that the engineers of the British brand are actually testing real prototypes of their new products. This video was shown at a motor show in Guangzhou (China), where the local debut of the hypercar was held.
Lotus officials have already announced that as part of the Lotus Evija electric hypercar testing, the car will be tested on various racetracks throughout Europe, which are characterized by complex turns and longer stretches of straight road where Evija can reach speed. Car behavior will also be checked on public roads.
In total 130 copies of Lotus Evija will be collected. Under the hood there are four electric motors with a total capacity of 1,973 horsepower. Acceleration from 0 to 100 km / h will take less than three seconds. The maximum speed will be 340 km / h. Cruising range is 400 km.
