• World’s first British all-electric hypercar – project code Type 130 – will be revealed in London, the birthplace of the brand, in July
• A maximum of just 130 examples will be available to own, with first customer deliveries to commence in 2020
• Production of the Type 130 confirmed for Lotus HQ in Hethel, Norfolk

(Hethel, Norfolk – 31 May 2019) Lotus confirms today that Type 130, the brand’s first all-new model in more than a decade, will be revealed to the world’s media at an exclusive event in Central London on 16 July.
Following first confirmation of the project in April at the Shanghai International Auto Show, several hundred potential owners have come forward to express their interest in the new car. Today, the company announces that a maximum of just 130 examples will be available to own – representing the number of Lotus ‘Types’ introduced during the brand’s 71-year history.

Reborn Lotus Mulls Second U.K. Plant, Could Build SUV in China
2019-07-17 08:34:02.444 GMT


By Christopher Jasper
(Bloomberg) -- Lotus Cars is preparing for an expansion
under Asian owner Geely Automobile Holdings Ltd. that could see
the iconic British automaker open a second U.K. factory and
target new markets by building higher-volume models in China.
Lotus plans to triple output at its base in Hethel, eastern
England, to slightly more than 5,000 cars a year and could reach
10,000 if it adopts a double-shift work pattern, Chief Executive
Officer Phil Popham said in an interview. Further increases
might require a new plant elsewhere in the country, he said.
Popham described Lotus as a “70-year-old startup” after the
launch of its first new car in 10 years. The 1.7 million-pound
($2.1 million) all-electric Evija will be followed by a solely
combustion-engined model to be revealed in 2020, after which all
subsequent cars will have electric variants, possibly skipping a
hybrid option which the CEO said can add too much weight for a
sports design.
Lotus’s 10-year growth plan includes an expansion into new
segments, Popham said after unveiling the Evija at an event in
London where it displayed past models including the 1960s-
vintage Elan and the wedge-shaped Esprit, famously driven
underwater by film spy James Bond. That could include anything
from a sport-utility vehicle through a crossover model to a
sedan. The company made 1,632 cars in 2018 and expects to top
1,700 this year.

Geely Chief Technical Officer Feng Qingfeng, also CEO of
Group Lotus following a takeover by the Zhejiang-based automaker
in 2017, told journalists that while Lotus’s core sports lineup
would continue to be built in the U.K., higher-volume models
could be made in China.
“The manufacturing location depends on the local
advantage,” he said. “The U.K. is good at making hand-made cars,
so sports and hypercars. In China we may have more advantage in
infrastructure for mass-production cars.”
Popham said there’s scope for Lotus to work with other
Geely companies, which include Sweden’s Volvo Cars and Proton of
Malaysia, the U.K. brand’s former owner, though there’s no
question of re-badging other platforms with the name, and
neither would the same model be made in multiple locations.
Speaking on Bloomberg TV, the CEO said Lotus has secured
the first few orders for the Evija in recent weeks and expects
to sell the “halo” model, which will have a production run of
just 130 cars, to buyers from around the world.
Despite the Evija’s hypercar credentials, which will see it
vie with the Pininfarina SpA Battista and Rimac Automobili’s
Concept One, as well as top-end conventional models from the
likes of Ferrari NV and Lamborghini, Popham said future cars
will remain within Lotus’s established 50,000 pounds to 150,000
pounds price bracket, though there’s some scope for moving
upscale.
Feng ruled out an early return to Formula 1, where Lotus
was once a dominant force, while saying he expects the company
to do more in motor sport generally.
Lotus has no major concerns about Brexit, Popham said,
adding that a U.K. split from the European Union on Oct. 31 now
seems likely given commitments from the candidates to succeed
Theresa May as prime minister. The company has stockpiled parts
in case of a no-deal exit, but the CEO said any impact would be
limited and predicted that new trade accords would be rapidly
concluded.
“We’re a nation that’s historically one of the biggest
traders in the global market, always have been, always will be,
so it’s matter of time before a new deal is done with Europe and
other trading partners around the world,” he said.
