Geneva 2010: Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid

Teaser Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid

The 80th Geneva Motor Show will show us the Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid concept developed by Lotus engineering. The British manufacturer unveiled a teaser today.

The sports car uses a plug-in series hybrid drive system with two electric motors driving each of the rear wheels independently via single speed geartrain, integrated into a common transmission housing. It enables torque vectoring for stability control of the vehicle. Electrical power is stored in a lithium polymer battery pack mounted in the centre of the vehicle for stability and safety. Additional range is provided by the Lotus Range Extender engine, an optimised 1.2 litre three-cylinder engine.

The Lotus Hybrid develops 414PS (306kW) and can accelerate from 0 to 100km/h (60mph) in just 4.0 seconds and has a range of 300 miles/483 kilometers.

The seven-speed transmission with paddle shifters uses two driving modes – Eco and Sport. The Evora 414E Hybrid comes with a HALOsonic Internal and External Electronic Sound Synthesis and Torque vectoring.

More information on this vehicle beginning of next week!
