While still able to accelerate from 0-60mph in under 40mph, the hybrid range will offer 300 miles on a full charge. A realistic seven-speed paddle shift is included giving the driver two modes – Eco and Sports depending on the mood.

The car is Lotus most technologically advanced car with 408hp as well as being environmentally friendly. The range extended electric drive of the Evora 414E Hybrid consists of two electric motors driving each of the rear wheels independently via a single speed geartrain, integrated into a common transmission housing. Electrical power is stored in a lithium polymer battery pack optimized for energy density, efficiency and high power demand, mounted in the center of the vehicle for stability and safety. Additional range is provided by the Lotus Range Extender engine, an optimized 1.2 liter, three-cylinder engine, designed specifically for series hybrid vehicles. The drivetrain is designed to combine astonishing performance with efficient, low emissions driving.

The Evora 414E Hybrid has been designed to highlight Lotus’ innovative electric and hybrid vehicle technology without distracting from the pure sports car character of the Evora.
