Lotus may be the next EV maker to hit the streets with the Evija - an all-electric hypercar. The automaker just completed the development of a new facility to bring series production of the car to life.

Lotus said the Evija “performs like a beast, but looks like a beauty.” It has 2,000 PS and can hit zero-to-62 mph in under three seconds. It can reach 186 mph in under nine seconds and has a top speed of 200 mph.

As an electrified car, the Evija can take a full battery charge in under 10 minutes. The battery power pack has a power output of 2,000 kW and offers a driving range of 250 miles.

The two-seater Evija, which means “the first in existence,” will also begin customer delivery in summer from its new Hethel, U.K., facility, which is also home to Lotus headquarters. A total of 130 cars will be produced by the company, with the first year of production already filled by worldwide reservations.

Construction on the facility began in summer 2019, including the development of a 2.2-mile track for testing that is located next to the facility.

“This is now the newest car production facility in the world, and to witness it move from the drawing board to reality has been deeply satisfying,” Phil Popham, CEO at Lotus, said in a statement.

“It’s testament to the commitment of all involved, and is the perfect sleek and high-tech production home for the Evija at our iconic Hethel headquarters,” he added.
