Lotus unveils $2 million electric 'supercar'

Wednesday, July 17th 2019, 12:34 pm - British sports car maker Lotus has unveiled a 1,900 horsepower, all-electric 'supercar' that will cost more than $2 million (CAD).

The battery-powered Evija (pronounced E-VY-A) will be able to go from 0 to 100 kilometres per hour in less than three seconds and will have a top speed of more than 320 kilometres per hour. The car will have a targeted range of about 400 kilometres.

Lotus says the car is equipped with the world's fastest charging battery, which can go from no power to 80 percent capacity in 12 minutes on 350kW chargers, with a full charge taking 18 minutes.

When 800kW charging is available, the company says the car will fully charge in 9 minutes.

At a weight of 1,700 kg, the Evija will be the lightest electric car to ever hit the production line.
