Pushing the limits of contemporary hypercar technology is the goal of the Lotus Evija (pronounced eh-VIE’-ya). This model commits to being totally electric and comes with an ultrafast charging arrangement, while several competitors offer hybrid powertrains. Its outside styling is inspired by race cars created to rule the track. The car’s sheetmetal features butterfly doors and a sizable rear wing, among other things. But what this car offers from its four electric motors is the best: According to Lotus, the Evija has around 2000 horsepower, making it the world’s most potent production vehicle. This cutting-edge hyper-car will only be produced in 130 units, each costing more than $2 million.

This Lotus is available in a single trim that has all the features discriminating hypercar buyers are looking for. Climate control and a top-notch entertainment system are included in the car’s list of standard interior features. Lotus offers a wide range of interior trims and paint finishes so you can customise the Evija to your preferences. Just 130 models can be produced, so bear that in mind. The Evija is also not street legal in the United States.
Lotus Power and Performance
The Evija’s muscular electric powertrain steals the show. Four electric motors work in tandem to propel the vehicle, and according to Lotus, they produce a combined output of 1972 horsepower and 1254 lb-ft of torque. That’s nearly twice as much horsepower as more expensive hypercars like the Aston Martin Valkyrie offer. All four wheels receive power from a single-speed automatic transmission that controls everything. The vehicle’s low curb weight is intended to improve handling. The Evija, according to the manufacturer, weighs little over 3700 pounds, making it the lightest production EV hypercar ever.
The Evija can sprint to 62 mph in under three seconds and has a top speed of more than 200 mph. Range, City, Tour, Sport, and Track are the five driving modes that can be used to alter the car’s performance. We got a taste of what the production version’s intuitive steering rack and responsive handling qualities will be like during our drive of an Evija prototype. The prototype produced just over 1600 horsepower and demonstrated its devastating acceleration, despite having a detuned electric motor and without some of its niftiest features, including active aerodynamics and torque vectoring between its axles.
Lotus Range and Battery
In most EV’s, you have to wait for the battery to charge for many minutes or hours. The Evija is distinctive. It has technology that is intended to make battery charging virtually as quick as filling up at the gas station. The automobile charges to 80% of its capacity in just 12 minutes, and to 100% in just 18 minutes. The range of this Lotus hypercar is up to 250 miles between charges.
Lotus Interior and Cargo
The Lotus Evija has two passenger seats, and two dihedral doors provide access to the interior. To maintain the car’s sleek, sculptural look, these doors lack handles and are activated by the key fob. The overhead console has a switch that can be used to close the doors after you get into the vehicle. The front seats of the Evija are electrically adjustable and have carbon fibre shells with thick microfiber padding.
Two custom storage areas are located around the hip points of the occupants, and the driver can manually modify the angle and length of the steering column. Climate control and three-point seatbelts are included in the list of standard interior features; four-point harnesses are available as an option. Overall, the cabin of the Evija has an appearance that is both classic and contemporary. According to Lotus, some design cues were influenced by the company’s 1950s and 1960s racing vehicles.
Lotus Infotainment and Connectivity
Tech features like Bluetooth connectivity and an infotainment system are included on all Evija hypercars. A digital display is located in front of the steering wheel and gives the driver important information including the battery charge and remaining range. This is the only screen in the car. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are available for the Evija, and Lotus has added an onboard modem to make it easier to connect to the cloud. Drivers can keep an eye on the Evija from anywhere by using a smartphone app to check on things like the battery’s charge level and driving range.
Lotus Safety Features
We anticipate Lotus to at least provide some helps on the Evija given the increasing prevalence of driver-assistance technologies in contemporary performance vehicles.
