Lotus Emira Will Be the Final Gasoline Car from the Sports-Car Maker

by | Apr 29, 2021 | Cars, Man Cave

  • Lotus is replacing a full lineup of sports cars—Evora, Elise, Exige—with just one, and it’s going to be the last gasoline-engined model: the Emira.
  • The forthcoming car will come with a choice of a 300-hp four-cylinder or a V-6 powerplant expected to make more than 400 horsepower. There’ll be no hybrid or plug-in-hybrid version.
  • We’re only seeing teaser photos for now, but the Emira will be fully on view in July, and it will be on sale by the end of the year, priced starting in the mid-$60,000s.

    We have known that Lotus plans to replace its entire existing lineup with a single new car since January. Now the British sports-car maker has confirmed the name for that next-generation sports car—Emira—and released these teaser images.

    Previously known by its engineering code name, Type 131, the Emira has been designed to deliver on Lotus’s promise of creating a more usable and better-equipped car than the Evora, Elise, and Exige that it collectively replaces. “I think Lotus in the past has maybe been a bit guilty of engineering something it thought people wanted and then putting it to the market,” explained Matt Windle, Lotus’s new managing director. “Now we’re trying to engineer something that people actually want.”
