Lotus have entered the world of insane electric hypercars with the unveiling of the 2,000 horsepower Lotus Evija. This will be the first all new Lotus car released under the new owners Geely, who purchased Lotus in 2017. The Evija will take it’s place as the halo model for the brand as they slowly replace the whole line-up with new models for the Elise, Evora and Exige.

This all-electric hypercar is powered by four electric motors capable of developing 500 PS (368 kW) each, and all connected to a wheel each. This system will make the Evija the first all-wheel drive Lotus ever produced. Combined power output is expected to be around the 2,000 PS (1,471 Kw) mark, with 1,254 lb-ft (1,700 Nm) of torque. All of this will get it’s juice from a 70 kWh battery pack that should be rated for a theoretical range of 250 miles on the WLTP cycle. That battery will utilize up to 800 kW charging, which could mean a charge time of as little as 8 minutes with a fast enough charger.
