    We are probably going to see 3000 hp cars and whatnot but is it really the way you want enjoy cars in the future?

    The whole point of (expensive/super sports/etc.) cars is/was the emotional part and I really don't see this in a car which does 0-300 kph in a ridiculously low time, very likely challenging 99.9% of the drivers out there.

    The car is fast, yes and...nothing more? Smiley Smiley

    Re: Lotus Type 130 (electric hypercar)

    Resistance is futile. Horses had a lot of emotional attachments to their owners as well. We managed to convince ourselves that cars could substitute - moving to electric cars is actually a much smaller shift.  The capabilities (just fast, as you put it) will soon be back in play like in the good old days.  
    You can always add sound if that floats your boat. It’s not like most of the current sound is not engineered rather than natural.  IMHO I prefer no sound. I love the silent shove and how useable it is at all times. 
    Good news is that safety and efficiency will be giant winners and if all goes well we will see higher speed limits and lower commute times and expenses.

    Williams Advanced Engineering Suing Lotus For Evija Contract Termination



    Williams’ role in the project was providing specific high-voltage and battery development expertise to the project. Unfortunately, Lotus says that it terminated the technical contract due to delivery issues. Regardless of what that exactly means, WAE is taking legal action against the British automaker’s decision, citing its displeasure and outstanding invoices that have gone unpaid since April 2020.


    Lotus’ contract termination is said to put a number of UK jobs at risk and even jeopardise the hypercar’s launch. Regardless of whether WAE will keep its contract, it’s clear that there will be some awkward moments between the two in the near future.

    It's a good way for Lotus to learn about EV cars.
