British sports car maker Lotus began in 1953, and most recently offered its Elise, Exige and Evora models in the US. However, sales were suspended due to non-compliance with US safety regulations.
It'll have at least 600 horsepower, crazy active aerodynamics, deployable lidar sensors and a super nice interior.
Lotus' first SUV will have at least 600 horsepower and a maximum range of 373 miles.
It may lack the fire-breathing power of some of the AMG versions, but the Emira's four-cylinder should make for one seriously engaging drive.
The Lotus Emira will soon enter production, and this replacement for the Elise will be a true Lotus.
The first Lotus SUV -- and its first series production EV -- will debut on March 29.
Then-owner of Lotus Roman Artioli named the Elise sports car after his granddaughter, who was just a toddler at the time.
The first project looks to be a race car inspired by old Can-Am and F1 racers.
We have two new teaser videos for the presumed electric SUV: one titled Stretch and another called See.
