The Lotus Evija is a limited production electric sports car to be manufactured by British automobile manufacturer Lotus Cars. The name Evija (pronounced eh-VIE’-ya) is derived from Eve of the Abrahamic religions, a name whose etymology can be traced back to the Biblical Hebrew חי, meaning ‘alive’, or ‘living’. While many rivals offer hybrid powertrains, this model commits to being fully electric, and it comes with an ultrafast charging setup. Unveiled in July 2019, it is the first electric vehicle to be introduced and manufactured by the company. Evija is the perfect name for our new car because it is the first all-new car to come from Lotus as part of the wider Geely family. With Geely’s support we are set to create an incredible range of new cars which are true to the Lotus name and DNA.
Its exterior design takes cues from race cars built to dominate the track. The car’s sheetmetal includes elements such as butterfly doors and a large rear wing.

Codenamed “Type 130”, its production will be limited to 130 units with each priced at more than $2 million.
