British sports car maker, Lotus has released a new video showcasing its upcoming car, the Evija – an all-electric hypercar that promises to be the world’s most powerful series production road car.
The Lotus Evija is currently under development and is almost at its final prototype stage prior to production. First customer deliveries are expected to begin around summer time.
Testing is being carried out at Lotus’ own 2.2-mile circuit, with motoring legends Ayrton Senna, Emerson Fittipaldi and Jim Clark getting behind the wheel to help develop this 2,000 horsepower monster.
Phil Popham, CEO, Lotus Cars said: “This is now the newest car production facility in the world, and to witness it move from the drawing board to reality has been deeply satisfying. It’s testament to the commitment of all involved, and is the perfect sleek and high-tech production home for the Evija at our iconic Hethel headquarters.”
