Lotus Emira (2021): the last thermal Lotus

Lotus, which will soon switch to electric, announces the arrival of its latest 100% thermal model. See you on July 6, 2021 to discover the Emira.

Lotus announced it last January: the British manufacturer will deeply renew its range. As the electric supercar Evija arrives, the brand has decided to end the careers of its Elise, Exige and Evora by the end of the year. In place, three sports news will be launched ! And the first of them has just been announced!

A page turns at Lotus

Internally called “Type 131”, this one will eventually take the name Emira. Above all, contrary to what the rumor announced, the car will not be electric or hybrid. It will be thermal. It will even be the latest 100% thermal Lotus !

“It will be powered by a choice of internal combustion engines,” says the firm, which adds that it has signed a new partnership for the supply of one of the engines. The other block, signed Lotus, will be entirely new, very efficient and at the cutting edge of technology, continues the manufacturer.

An Evija-style design

Always on the technical side, the Emira will be built on the “Elemental” platform, one of the four new structures developed by Lotus with its Chinese owner Geely. The “Extreme” platform will be used for hypercars like the Evija, while the “Evolution” base will be used for a new range of premium and “lifestyle” vehicles. The fourth and last platform, called “E-Sports”, will be dedicated to the electric partnership with Alpine.

Finally, in terms of design, the Emira will be directly influenced by the Evija.

See you on July 6 in Hethel!

This famous Emira will be unveiled on July 6 at Lotus HQ in Hethel, England, where it will also be produced. His public debut is scheduled for July 8-11 at the Festival of Speed ​​at Goodwood, also in England.
