The ongoing transformation of Lotus to a truly global performance business and the brand has reached its most significant milestone yet – the arrival of the Eletre hyper-SUV. The Lotus Eletre is a striking and progressive new model, the first of a new breed of pure electric performance SUVs. It takes the core principles and Lotus DNA from 75 years of sports car design and engineering, evolving them into desirable all-new lifestyle vehicle.
Two of the most famous names in Formula 1 have been behind the wheel of the stunning Lotus Evija all-electric hypercar during one amazing week at Hethel. Emerson Fittipaldi is the Lotus legend whose racing success in the Type 72 exactly 50 years ago has inspired development of the Lotus Evija Fittialdi. He was at the home of Lotus for the car’s world premiere, driving it round the famous 2.2-mile test track. And just a few days earlier, Jenson Button – F1 World Champion in 2009 and an Evija customer – was involved in shakedown testing ahead of its public debut.
