Lotus began as a constructor of racing cars and has a long history of success in Formula 1. As the maker of the awesome Esprit and Elise in the past, the brand is transitioning to become a builder of all electric vehicles. The upcoming Emira is slated to be the manufacturer’s last vehicle with an internal combustion engine. Powered by a choice of a turbocharged four-cylinder or supercharged V6 engine, the Emira is a successor to both the Evora and the Exige. 

The first all electric vehicles to come from Lotus will be the Evija hypercar which is stated to have nearly 2,000 hp, travel up to 215 miles on a single charge, and be capable of exceeding 200 mph. The other is the all-electric Eltre SUV. 

On the more reasonable end of the spectrum, debuting later this year will be the Type 132, which will be Lotus’ first SUV.
