Lotus wants to electrify their lineup

In 2020, Lotus might offer all their cars in an electrified variant according to an interview giving by the company’s president and CEO Phil Popham.

Lotus Cars, a British division distinguished from other sports car’ manufacturers by their lightness, but also by their acute driving experience, are not very common on our roads.

Recently, Lotus has received considerable attention by lifting the veil on his first hypercar, Evija. Limited to 130 copies worldwide, it will mark a new era for Lotus embarking, not only in this super-niche for the wealthiest but also by its all-electric powertrain. Moreover, with 1972 horsepower, the mechanics of this British rocket will also be the most powerful production car on the planet … until the arrival of a more powerful car obviously!

British publication Autocar recently spoke with the brand’s president and CEO Phil Popham, who unveiled some crisp details about Lotus’ future, dubbed in-house Vision 80.

Moreover, we learn that the manufacturer plans to market a last sports car equipped with an internal combustion engine. Its presentation is scheduled for a little before the end of 2020. After the fact, Lotus intends to focus on electrification, since each Lotus model will be available with a fully-electric motor.

The head of management, however, reiterated that the character of the Lotus brand would not be affected by these changes. The driving experience will remain central to the development of future models. Also, as expected, Lotus wants to increase its production of vehicles over the next decade, even if it means finding another site (than Hethel, its current British factory) to assemble its vehicles. Will we see a Lotus-branded SUV in the near future? At this moment, all scenarios are possible.
