Lotus Evija To Start World Tour In The US

The most recent creation from Lotus will start its world tour during the Monterey Car Week in California.

Unveiled last month, the British hypercar is going on a world tour. The first stop of the tour will be next week during the 2019 Monterey Car Week in the United States.

Lotus also confirmed that the first North American order of the Evija was received on the day of the unveiling in July. The customer, based in Miami, filled out the ‘agreement to purchase’ and is amongst the first placed orders.

For the lucky ones that will be there, the Lotus Evija will appear at ‘The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering’ on Friday August 16th and at Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on the Sunday August 18th.

“I’m expecting the Lotus Evija to be a huge draw at both locations. They’re famous for playing host to some of the world’s most rare and beautiful cars, so the Evija will be perfectly at home,” said Russell Carr, Design Director, Lotus Cars about the hypercar at the Monterey Car Week.

The Lotus Evija (pronounced  “E-vi-ya”), is a 1,972-horsepower and 1,254 lb.-ft. of torque all-electric hypercar. The carmaker says it will do the 0-100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and will have a top speed of more than 200 mph, or 320 km/h. Limited to 130 vehicles, the Evija will cost £1.5 million ($1.86 million US).

That being said, if you’re part of the unlucky ones that are not going to attend the Monterey Car Week, you can watch this highly detailed 23-minute video (below) in which Henry Catchpole of the Carfection Youtube channel tours the car with Russell Carr, Lotus Cars Design Director.
