First All-New Lotus in More Than a Decade is All-Electric Hypercar

Lotus has revealed that the Lotus Type 130, the brand's first all-new model in more than a decade, is an all-electric hypercar that will be revealed to the world at an exclusive event in Central London on July 16.

Following the first confirmation of the project at the Shanghai International Auto Show in April, "several hundred potential owners" have supposedly expressed their interest in the new car. The British marque added that only 130 units will be made, "representing the number of Lotus 'Types' introduced during the brand's 71-year history."

To be built at Hethel in Norfolk, the brand's headquarters since 1966, the Type 130 "will be the most dynamically accomplished road car in the company's history, continuing a bloodline rich in firsts and technical game-changers in automotive and motorsport."
