The Lotus Evija is the World’s First Fully-Electric Hypercar

British automaker, Lotus, has just unveiled its new flagship — the Lotus Evija. Pronounced “E-vi-ya”, the fully-electric hypercar weighs just 1,680kg, and boasts a 1,972-horsepower punch thanks to four electric motors, one dedicated to each wheel.

The hypercar features a top speed of over 200 miles per hour and can go from 0 to 60 miles per in under 3 seconds. The car can be charged to 80 percent from zero in just 12 minutes on 350kW chargers, with a full charge taking only 18 minutes. And when 800kW charging becomes available, Lotus says a full charge will take just 9 minutes.

The Lotus Evija will be limited to only 130 units, and they will each start at £1.5 million ($1.86 million).
