Lotus Type 130 Hypercar To Be Named Evija

The world’s first British electric hypercar now has a name. The Type 130 hypercar will be called the Lotus Evija.

Back in April, Lotus released a video teaser that announced a new hypercar, the Type 130, that was later confirmed at the Shanghai Auto Show. Today, the British manufacturer chose the Goodwood Festival of Speed to reveal the name of its new all-electric hypercar.

Lotus Cars CEO Phil Popham said: “Evija is the perfect name for our new car because it’s the first hypercar from Lotus, our first electric offering and is the first new model under the stewardship of Geely. The Evija is a Lotus like no other, yet a true Lotus in every sense. It will re-establish our brand on the global automotive stage and pave the way for further visionary models.”

The Evija, the first all-electric hypercar from a British car maker, is pronounced ‘ev-eye-a’ and means ‘the first in existence’ or ‘the living one’.

People going to the Goodwood Festival of Speed can catch a glimpse of the car the Lotus stand, on the main grid.

The car, which will be built at the Hethel, Norfolk factory will be limited to a run of 130 copies as a tribute to its Type number.

The full unveiling of the car will be done in London later this month.
