The Lotus Evora 414E Hybrid, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show 2010, is undergoing final testing of dynamics and durability in the headquarters of the British firm and has recently gone through the Goodwood Festival 2012. And it is that the new British brand was contemplated from the beginning to adopt the latest technologies in order to become the hallmark of innovation that was the manufacturer under the baton of Colin Chapman.
Today, the new era remains into something more tangible than the promise of it sketches and concepts, but little by little seems that the intention is to improve and position the brand to live up to its rivals. This new hybrid drivetrain help bring the Evora to more capable rivals.
Your engine runs on gasoline or biofuels and is associated with a shift seven-speed semi-automatic Xtrac. The objective of the internal combustion engine, apart, of course moving the car is simply to charge the electric batteries via a generator, although these can also be charged via a plug.
In addition, Lotus mounted two electric motors to move each of the rear wheels together with a three-cylinder encompassing the block, the cylinder head and exhaust manifold in a single piece, and is able to reduce the weight to 85 kilos.
With electrical blocks, this English phenomenon can reach 48 km of autonomy and produces 55 g of CO2/km. The Evora has extended-range 414 hp and no less than 1,000 Nm of torque. It goes from 0 to 100 km/h in about four seconds and top speed of 209 km/h. New technologies that manufacturers are taking advantage of supercars such as Ferrari, preparing the successor to the Enzo engine with a system called HY-KERS.
