British sports car maker Lotus revealed its pure electric “hypercar” on Tuesday, the first completely new vehicle to be launched under the stewardship of Chinese firm Geely which acquired a majority stake in 2017.

The Evija, to be produced at the firm’s factory in Hethel, eastern England, will have a limited production run of just 130 cars and will be built from 2020.
