After releasing a teaser last week, Lotus today took the wraps off of the new Evora 414E Hybrid Concept at the 2010 Geneva Motor Show. The main goal of the concept is to show high-performance technology mated to a plug-in hybrid drive system and new technologies for enhanced driver involvement.
The Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid is powered by two electric motors providing 204-hp and 295 lb-ft of torque to each rear-wheel, single speed, reduction transmission integrated into a single housing. That provides for a total of 407-hp and a torque of 590 lb-ft with a 0-62 mph time under 4 seconds. After battery power is depleted, the Lotus Range Extender engine, providing 47-hp, allows for additional miles (overall driving range of 300 miles).
Lotus hasn’t said when the technology will start making it into its production road-going cars.
