Lotus Stuns The World With A 2,000HP All-Electric Hypercar

Though a bit slower than many environmentalists might have liked, the change-over from fossil fuels to electric power in the car industry is well underway. And while there have been some big-name marques, both old and new, helming that endeavor — like Tesla, Porsche, and even Ferrari and Lamborghini — a lot of smaller names have stayed relatively quiet. Lotus was one such name before the bombshell announcement of their first all-electric vehicle.

Unquestionably magnificent, the Lotus Evija (according to the brand) is the first all-electric British hypercar and the brand’s first all-new entry in years. For fans, however, the wait was well worth it, as this gorgeous four-wheeler’s battery-based powertrain produces a monstrous 1,973 horsepower — maxing out at over 200mph and with an impressive 250-mile range. Furthermore, this is also the world’s lightest all-electric hypercar — weighing in at a paltry 3,704 pounds thanks in part to its carbon fiber monocoque. Yet it manages all of that without sacrificing comfort or convenience, as the interior is plush and loaded with high-tech accouterments. Only 130 examples of the Evija will be built at a starting price of $2,100,000 each.

Purchase: $2,100,000+
