Lotus Evija To Make Public Debut At Monterey Car Week In August

Lotus has confirmed that its all-electric Evija hypercar will make its public debut at the Monterey Car Week next month.

Speaking with CNET, Lotus officials confirmed the car will be displayed during The Quail: A Motorsports Gathering on Friday, August 16.

The Monterey Car Week routinely attracts the planet’s most expensive automobiles and Lotus will inevitably hope to lock in some orders for the Evija from the many wealthy collectors who attend the week-long automotive festivities in California.

Only select journalists and customers have had the opportunity to see the Lotus Evija in the couple of weeks since it made its staggering global premiere. In pictures and on video, it looks absolutely staggering and we imagine in the flesh it is even more remarkable.

Powering the Evija are four electric motors that pump out a combined 1,973 HP and 1254 lb-ft (1700 Nm) of torque. Lotus says it will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in less than three seconds, 186 mph (300 km/h) in 9 seconds, and go on to a top speed exceeding 200 mph (320 km/h). Not only does the Evija promise to be virtually unmatched in a straight-line by any other car currently in production, but it will also produce huge amounts of downforce and could be taken to the Nurburgring chasing an EV road car record.

Unsurprisingly, Lotus’ first-ever hypercar is not cheap. Prices start at $2.1 million, with a $310,177 deposit required to secure one of the 130 units that will be manufactured.
