Most of the initial production assigned for the U.S. market is already allocated and it does not surprise us at all.
The British manufacturer said that it already received strong double-figure orders and now most of the initial production for the US market is allocated to customers. In total, 130 Evija are all that will ever be made (see all details about the car here).
"The all-new Lotus Evija hypercar has made its public debut at the world-renowned Monterey Car Week, which drew to a close at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance on Sunday.
Evija received plaudits from across the automotive world at Car Week, from the likes of high profile collector Jay Leno, social media star Supercar Blondie and the Petersen Automotive Museum Checkered Flag 200, gaining many new fans, friends and customers along the way."
Gordon McCall, Director of Motorsports for The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering, said:
“Seeing the Lotus Evija debut at The Quail was fantastic – the brand has an amazing history and it is exciting to see its future unfold with the first of its new sports cars.”
Lotus Cars’ CEO, Phil Popham, added:
“This is exactly the start we hoped for. Evija is an outstanding and exceptional car – designed and engineered to put Lotus back on the map as the innovator and technical leader that it is. Many orders are now taken, giving us great confidence to hit our planned volume as we enter production next year.”
