Lotus Emira (type 131)

Post by Nillet »

I år presenteras type 131.
https://media.lotuscars.com/en/news-art ... ction.html
"Detektiven allmänheten" jobbar på det tills dess...
I en film som Lotus släppte som bara visar en snutt väg/tunnel kan man via mittlinjen och morsekod tydligen utläsa . -- .. .-. .-

Det utläses till Emira och då letade man fram att Lotus registrerade det namnet som trademark i november.

En intressant interview om 131 och Lotus framtid.
https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/7d86 ... 0a6c632e73
This week, Lotus’s first all-new road car for 12 years, whose name will be unveiled on Tuesday, will begin rolling off the production line.
There will soon be cars to tempt ordinary buyers, too — a cheaper sports car in partnership with Renault, an SUV the size of a Porsche Cayenne and a four-door grand tourer as big as the BMW 8 Series, to be followed by other “lifestyle” vehicles including a smaller SUV. All will be pure electric. No hybrids.
Windle, 49, thinks he can lure a new generation of global customers with cars that have driver-focused handling, cutting-edge batteries and electric motor technology, and “beautiful design”. Most small marques owned by big companies “borrow” vehicle platforms from their owners to save money, which can mean design is compromised. “We’re not going to use Geely architectures and try to make something fit. We’re investing in our own architectures,” Windle explains.

Från pressmaterialet:
Lotus Type 131 – the all-new sports car is named EMIRA
• Emira means ‘commander’ or ‘leader’ – highly appropriate for this new Lotus sports car
• Name had been ‘hidden in plain sight’ in social media teaser film in recent days
• All-new Lotus design language inspired by the Evija all-electric hypercar
• World debut of Lotus Emira on Tuesday 6 July

(Hethel, UK – 27 April 2021) – Lotus has today confirmed the name of its eagerly anticipated all-new sports car will be EMIRA.
The news was confirmed during the Driving Tomorrow global digital conference broadcast. To date it has been known only by its codename, the Lotus Type 131.
The name had been teased by Lotus in a film on social media in recent days. It was ‘hidden in plain sight’ as part of a pattern of dots and dashes designed into the central line on a road. Those with knowledge of Morse Code could have spotted that it spelled Emira. Today, 27 April, is the anniversary of the birthday of Samuel Morse, inventor of Morse Code.
Pronounced ‘E-meer-a’, the word features in numerous ancient languages and often translates as ‘commander’ or ‘leader’. It’s highly appropriate as this is the exciting new sports car leading Lotus on a journey to a thrilling new future.
The Emira will be unveiled on Tuesday 6 July at Hethel, Norfolk – where the Emira will be built – and will make its public dynamic debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed on 8-11 July.
Lotus has also confirmed that, contrary to media speculation, the car will not be a hybrid. The Emira will be powered by a choice of internal combustion engines – the last time Lotus will launch an ICE car – with an exciting new powertrain partnership. The additional powertrain option will be new to Lotus, highly efficient, use cutting edge technology and be tuned to help deliver that distinctive Lotus experience.
With a distinctive new sports car design influenced by the Lotus Evija hypercar, Emira marks the acceleration of the brand’s product-led offensive into a new era of contemporary design, highly efficient powertrains, and everyday usability coupled with explosive performance.
Speaking about the Emira, Matt Windle said: ”It’s the most accomplished Lotus for generations – the perfectly packaged, powered and formed sports car. Beautifully proportioned, shrink-wrapped, but with comfort, technology and ergonomics built in. With a design inspired by the Evija all-electric hypercar, it’s a game-changing Lotus sports car.”
More details on the Lotus Emira will follow in July when the car is revealed.

Riktigt trevlig bil!

Om man nu inte kan fortsätta producera Elise och Exige, så tror jag att Emira är rätt positionerad på marknaden för att attrahera en så stor målgrupp som möjligt. Så klart trist ur ett "light is right" perspektiv, men troligtivis verkligheten.

Jag är lite avigt inställd till att den bara har digitala instrument, men med tanke på hur det ser ut att vara konfigurerat, så har det så klart sina fördelar också.

Ska bli intressant när de lyfter på "locket" och visar maskinen och transmissionen, för att se om allt är exakt samma som på Evoran, eller ...?

Nu har Lotus uppdaterat konfiguratorn för 1st edition. Färre valmöjligheter vad gäller tillval. Men det är i gammal god Lotusanda att begränsa valmöjligheterna :-D
