There is nothing subtle about the brand’s first foray into the EV segment. The Lotus Evija costs north of $2 million, boasts almost 2,000 hp and can rocket to 186 mph in nine seconds. It goes right up against hyper-EV heavyweights like the Rimac Nevera and Pininfarina Batista.
The Lotus Evija is striking from every angle, with a design language that prioritizes aerodynamic efficiency over all else. A race-inspired suspension featuring three spool-valve dampers per axle—one at each corner and an inboard-mounted third – should help with the handling attributes of the 3,704-pound hypercar (EVs aren’t exactly lightweight vehicles). Lotus will only build 130 units of the Evija to preserve its exclusivity.
