One day in the distant future, the only place to find gas-powered cars will be at the world’s most prestigious car shows. As for now, electric hypercars are in high demand, so the Lotus Evija world tour will start at Monterey. England’s first all-electric Hypercar offers 2000 metric horsepower, or 1,973 using the traditional SAE protocols. Their first American order was received within hours of the reveal, so Monterey is a logical starting point.
Lauded as the world’s most powerful series-production road car, it is powered by a 2,000 kWh battery and four electric motors. With a combined torque of 1,254 lb-ft, it could be one of the fastest cars on the market. They claim 62 mph arrives in under 3 seconds along with a top speed over 200 mph. It will be shown on the evening of Friday the 16th at Quail Lodge. From there, it will be placed on the 18th Fairway at Pebble Beach for the Concours on Sunday. Then it is down to Galpin Lotus in L.A. Further dates of the tour will be released soon, so stay with us for all your Lotus updates.
