If you’re thinking about getting the latest electric supercar from Lotus … forget it! The Lotus Evija is completely sold out for 2020. You’ll have to wait until next year 😀
The new Lotus Evija, an electric hypercar claimed to be “the most powerful production car in the world”, will go into production this summer, with 2020’s production run now sold out.
The Evija is being built in at a refurbished facility at Lotus’s headquarters in Hethel, Norfolk, called Factory 3. Work on the facility, which is a former Lotus Engineering building that was once home to the Vauxhall Lotus Carlton, is now near completion. Each of the 130 Evijas will be hand-built there.
Lotus has told Autocar that all of the Evijas due to be built this year have already been sold, although it hasn’t given an exact figure.
“With our new factory ready, we are ahead of the pack in the emerging EV hypercar segment and 100% ready for some healthy competition,” said Lotus boss Phil Popham, an indirect reference to the likes of the Pininfarina Battista that have so far remained quiet on sales.
Dynamic testing of the car is also well underway at Lotus’s Hethel test track, which sits adjacent to the Evija production facility. A video (below) shows the car being driven at speed.
