James May takes a look at the Lotus Evija. And his opening monologue is classic motoring journalist turned motoring philosopher. And very few motoring hacks have the ability to deliver such thought-provoking words and sentences. We believe James May is the only one.
The Evija is a 2,000 hp electric ultra car, only 130 vehicles will ever be made and each one will cost £2.2 million. But will it ever be made? The pandemic pushed back the initial launch date which has been vaguely reset to the first half of 2021.
Expect the Lotus Evija to face further delays, the launch date could possibly be pushed into 2022.
