  Приказа 2,297,965


Пре месец

James May loves looking into the future of the automotive landscape, and he did just that through a day with the stunning Lotus Evija hypercar.
2000hp, £2 million and all the EV geekery you could possibly hope for. Take it away, Mr May...

@its_topguN twitchtv I clicked the link, and it just leads to her BTS video, just like she said, so I dunno what you're talking about.

@Eirik Olsen because its obvious a scam or some fishy link. If you look close the s in http is missing. The s stands for secure 😊

At top speed, will the tyres last longer than the Bugatti Veyron and will the batteries run out before you even get to top speed? Great vid though :-)

I think the Evija looks like a Ferrari and has wheels that remind me of some recent limited edition Bugatti models - the Centodieci springing to mind.

Isn’t 500 hp per wheel exactly that ...no more than 500hp albeit a very torque loaded 500hp!!! To prove my point I’d like to see the lotus up against a 2000hp funny car!!!!! Go on Jamesey when the Evija is produced see if you can have it run the quarter mile with a 2000hp funny car!!!!!!

I'm not sure that the weight would go to the extremes as stated by James. The motor in each wheel makes sense for this vehicle and what's wrong with the batteries centrally mounted flat along the floorpan for weight distribution?

Why do car journalists always say 'noise'. Noise is bad. Surely they should refer to the sound of the car.

W.O.W. that is a fantastic looking machine. and if the performance numbers are anywhere near what lotus are claiming, its going to be bonkers! and of course, james has to be the one to talk about one of the most powerful production cars ever....because it's electric!

That condescending "It's electric, boo, get over it" has the same ring to it as "It's a _trans_ woman, boo, get over it" Almost as if they're both trying really hard to shill for a hidden agenda.
