Where will the Lotus Emira be made?
Lotus has announced there will be four new vehicle architectures, a technology roadmap and a fresh global retail identity which forms part of their ongoing transformation of the business and brand. This follows the major investments that have been made in new manufacturing facilities at Hethel where the Lotus Emira will be built.
Referred to internally as the Elemental architecture, this is the platform on which the all-new Lotus Emira will be built on. Flexible, lightweight and featuring the signature Lotus extruded aluminium technology, this new sports car platform is a massive step-change technically. Every dimension is different to previous generations of Lotus sports cars.
This project is one of many that the Lotus brand is working on with recent announcements including;
– JBXE: Lotus Engineering is technical partner to JBXE, the Extreme E race team launched by former F1 world champion Jenson Button. The team will benefit from Lotus Engineering’s expertise and motorsport experience.
– British Cycling: An innovative aerodynamic profile for the new track bike to be ridden by Team GB athletes at this summer’s Tokyo Olympics. The work has been led by Lotus Engineering.
– Project LEVA: Short for Lightweight Electric Vehicle Architecture, Project LEVA is a collaboration led by Lotus Engineering that is targeting the acceleration of and innovation behind new lightweight structures for next-generation battery electric vehicles.
– Project BattCon: Lotus Engineering has launched a pilot containerised battery testing facility to assess energy storage solutions for the booming EV sector. It means the consultancy can carry out various battery cell, module and pack characterisation tests, performance evaluations, and component and lifetime testing under controlled conditions for its clients.
