The Lotus Evija is an electric hypercar with a power of 2,000 hp and 1,700 Nm of maximum torque, which makes it the most powerful production car, and approved for driving, in the world. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in less than 3 seconds and has a top speed of 320 km/h. Its weight is only 1,680 kg, a figure contained if we take into account the power it has and the weight of the battery pack it assembles, which by the way, is centrally located, reminding the central combustion engines.
Lotus boasts the technology installed in the car, as it can support loads of up to 800 kW at the time this power is available at the charging points, allowing the battery to be 100% capacity in just 9 minutes. However, at present, the car can be charged at a power of up to 350 kW, completing the charge in only 18 minutes. The connector installed in the hypercar is CCS Combo 2 and is hidden under a cover on the back.
The capacity of the battery that equips the Lotus Evija is 70 kWh, and the brand says it can travel up to 400 km on a single charge.
The Lotus Evija has been developed in collaboration with Williams Advanced Engineering, known for their work in Formula 1 and Formula E. They are responsible for the electrical technology of the Evija, which equips four electric motors, to provide all-wheel drive with which to put that 2,000 hp of power in the safest way possible on the asphalt.
