Wow, what a reveal. Yesterday, Lotus finally unveiled their next new vehicle, the Type 130 – or as it is officially called, the 2020 Lotus Evija. We say official, though we will admit the actual model year number is still up in the air. The vehicle looks to enter production on its 130 units in 2020, so it might officially be considered a 2021 upon its release date thereafter, the jury is still out. However, Lotus has given us the rundown on some of its targeted performance specs.
