The new structure will support future Lotus EVs, and it will be able to be adapted to a range of sizes for packs and power levels as well as wheelbases. Since an announcement made on Tuesday, the picture is beginning to become more clear. Lotus has announced the Lightweight Electric Vehicle Architecture, that is not just light but also modular. This means that people who work in Hethel could use this design for a range of vehicles which include those electronic SUVs they talked about earlier in the year. Lotus states that its LEVA-constructed rear subframe can be up to 37 percent lighter than that included in the upcoming Emira V6 and that vehicle isn't anything anyone would consider large.
Lotus has provided numbers for the three LEVA-based vehicles that have two different layouts for battery packs. This "slab" battery pack planned for use in two-plus two models and will fit a battery up to 66.4 Kilowatt-hours. Lotus also offers figures for two different two-seater models, both with an "chest" type pack that sits behind the seats instead of directly on the floor. These are able to accommodate 66.4 as well as 99.6-kilowatt-hour packs.Lotus Emira GT4 shows that Hethel still is racing in its blood
It's a more adjustable, sharper-edged version of the stunning Emira and we'd like one.
Its Emira GT4 is a lot like the standard Emira that comes with the Toyota-sourced 400-horsepower supercharged V6, but it has distinct aero and safety features like the fire suppression system as well as a robust roll cage. The GT4 also has a unique dashboard configuration which allows drivers and teams to record all vehicle's parameters while on the track, and the huge 96-liter fuel cell. Naturally, it comes with a variety of performance-oriented motorsports components, such as adjustable Ohlins dampers as well as big Alcon brakes that have Bosch Motorsports ABS. These parts can add substantial levels of adjustment to your car which makes its performance more competitive.
There's no chance of a street-friendly version of this car similar to it's predecessor, the Porsche Cayman GT4 However, with Lotus it's impossible to say for sure.Lotus hasn't yet announced pricing information for the Emira GT4, let alone the GT4 however, given that the people in Hethel demanded a $60,000 more to purchase an Evora GT4 over the regular GT and we'd guess that for the Emira model to cost like that. Lotus provides more information regarding the 2022 Emira V6 First Edition, including the price.
