There's still room for the Elise at Lotus, but what a difference a decade or two makes. This Elise is due for release in 2015 when the Elise comes of age.

Aesthetically, it's pleasing to the eye but the practicality of the car has had a major overhaul, with improvements made to the occupant access.

Dany Bahar, Chief Executive Officer of Group Lotus, said: "We worked very hard on getting the Elise 2015 exactly right. It's our entry level car so needs to give a proper introduction to the Lotus driving experience."

"The Elise you can buy now is still a fantastic car, make no mistake, Lotus remain very proud of it, but this is a natural progression for us moving forward. The Elise 2015 will also be class-leading in terms of performance and efficiency but it will do more than that it will take the Elise model to the forefront of its class across the board."

"The design of the Elise 2015 is perfect for the target market, it's young, strong, confident, verging on ruthless, it mirrors the engineering and technology. It's the next generation Elise for a new generation of Lotus drivers."
