Lotus shows its electric sports car, the Evija
On Wednesday, the British sports car company unveiled its own electric sports car, the Evija, which it says will be the most powerful car on the market with electric motors producing 1,973 horsepower. The company has not listed its battery size but says it will be able to fully charge in nine minutes.
The Evija was designed in collaboration with the British engineering firm Williams Advanced Engineering, and only 130 will be manufactured.
With the Evija, the brand is moving away from the achievable sports cars it currently produces, including the Elise, on which Tesla based its original Roadster, back to supercars like the Elite, only with an electric propulsion system.
