The List of Predecessors to the Lotus Evija That You Didn't Know Existed

The List of Predecessors to the Lotus Evija That You Didn’t Know Existed

Yeah, Lotus really has a long history of electrification... kind of

Lotus just took a big step into the future by launching the Evija, its first-ever hypercar and first fully electric vehicle. Also likely to become the world most powerful production car, the Evija is a rather unusual car for an automaker known for affordable and lightweight sports cars. But as surprising as the Evija might seem, the truth is Lotus has been working with electrified drivetrains since the late 2000s. That’s a full decade of EVs and hybrids that haven’t received the attention they deserved. Granted, they’re all concept cars that never made it into production, but their existence signalled Lotus’ intentions. Also, several automakers based a handful of electrified vehicles on Lotus platforms. Let’s have a closer look at them.

2022 Volkswagen ID.4 GTX

2022 Volkswagen ID.4 GTX

A sportier take on the standard ID.4, the GTX comes with a dual-motor-setup, all-wheel-drive system, and improved power outputs and performance specs

Volkswagen has decided to step on the gas (pun unintended) and launch a new range of performance EVs with the ‘GTX’ badge. The automaker has introduced its first car under this series based on the ID.4 called the ID.4 GTX. The EV comes with significant performance upgrades over the standard model and also comes with some aesthetic changes. An additional motor, enhanced power outputs, and new headlight detailing are some of the differences here. The performance, however, comes at the cost of the range since Volkswagen has made use of the same battery pack as the standard ID.4. What is more important to you?

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS - The Important Things You Need To Know

2023 Mercedes-Benz EQS - The Important Things You Need To Know

Mercedes has come out all guns blazing with this one and we are mighty impressed

Mercedes-Benz has taken the covers off its first luxury electric sedan, the EQS. The EQS is built on an all-new architecture and follows the design philosophy of the other EQ products. It comes with a lot of breathtaking stuff that leaves a lasting impression. To give you a peek of what to expect, the car comes with a 478-mile range, the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system in the top trim, and a massive 56-inch Hyperscreen inside the cabin! Oh, and did I mention that it is also officially the world’s most aero-efficient car?

2022 Audi Q4 e-tron

2022 Audi Q4 e-tron

The latest e-tron model comes with a dual-motor setup, 323 miles of range, and a plethora of design themes and packages

Audi has jumped into one of the most popular segments today with two new electric offerings, the Q4 e-tron and the Q4 Sportback e-tron. These compact SUVs could be a game-changer for Audi and bring in huge volumes once launched. Both of them are essentially the same vehicle other than the sloping roofline on the Sportback, which seems to be quite a popular option these days. For now, the company has revealed the Euro-spec models and trim details, but we can expect pretty much the same stuff Stateside, too.

2021 Genesis X Concept

The X Concept looks stunning and we wouldn’t mind this design on a production-spec car

Automakers are rushing to show their electric concept models to the public and let them know to expect from the brand in the future. We saw the Lexus LF-Z Electrified just a couple of days back, and now, we have one from Genesis. Called the X Concept, the Genesis product is made its debut in Los Angeles and is said to present “Genesis’ sustainable luxury in the form of an EV-based high-performance GT coupe concept car”.

The Lexus LF-Z Makes the Future Look More Exciting

This concept showcases what to expect from Lexus battery-electric vehicles in the future

Lexus has been an advocate of electrification for a long time now. At present, it has nine hybrid electric vehicles in its lineup. In 2019, the company announced its ‘Lexus Electrified’ vision and we are now seeing what the company meant by it. The Japanese automaker plans to have 20 new models by 2025, and it all starts with the debut of its LF-Z Electrified concept.

2022 KIA EV6

The EV6 is a mixed bag that comes with handsome looks, decent tech features, Taycan-rivaling performance specs, but mediocre range

It wouldn’t be wrong to say that Kia has entered the EV segment with a bang. The company recently revealed some images of its first fully battery-electric vehicle called the EV6 without accompanying it with any data. But, the company has now officially debuted the car and it seems very impressive.

For starters, the Kia EV6 will make 577 ponies and 546 pound-feet of torque. It takes just 3.5 seconds to sprint to 62 mph from rest, which makes it faster than some Tesla models and Taycan iterations, too. And, did I mention it looks pretty hot?

2021 Alpha Motors WOLF

A cute, quirky truck that looks pretty cool but doesn’t seem too utilitarian

Alpha Motors is not a very well-known startup, but it’s got a few upcoming electric vehicles. The company had revealed a cute, retro-looking car last year called the Ace. Now, the company has followed that up with a compact electric pickup truck. It is based on the Ace and its crossover coupe called the Jax. It doesn’t boast of any mind-blowing specs, but this is a truck we want!

This Isn't An All-Electric Porsche 356 A, But It's Probably The Next Best Thing

This Isn’t An All-Electric Porsche 356 A, But It’s Probably The Next Best Thing

It’s still under development and it won’t be cheap

Watt Electric Vehicles is not the most sonorous name in the EV industry but looking at its latest project, the company seems to have the potential to become a strong player in the EV restomod niche. The reason behind this statement is as cool as they come: a Porsche 356-inspired EV with a mid-mounted electric motor.

BMW CEO Casts Shade All Over Elon Musk and Tesla

More like a warning shot wrapped as a prediction of sorts

Tesla can be credited for igniting this full-on electric car movement we’ve been witnessing over the past couple of years, with Dieselgate acting as a catalyzer for Volkswagen AG but also for other German brands, BMW included.

Well-established carmakers have been on a spending spree trying to develop electric powertrains and EVs and BMW CEO Oliver Zipse believes they will soon catch up with Tesla and even get ahead of it.

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

Is The Karma GS 6 The Perfect Middle Ground Between Full-Electric and Gas-Powered Cars?

It looks spectacular, is feature-rich, and comes with an electric-only range of 80 miles

Karma Automotive is back in the news, this time for the introduction of its latest vehicle called the GS-6. The GS-6 is essentially the Revero GT that the company revealed in the past, but with few significant changes. Karma plans to use the Revero moniker for a future, upmarket product.

Anyway, the GS-6 is a plug-in hybrid vehicle that debuts in the “new luxury” segment; a term coined by Karma to perhaps create a new niche. The GS-6 is not priced as exorbitantly high as the previous products and starts under $100,000.

2021 Audi E-Tron GT

A beautiful all-electric four-door coupé that’ll take Audi one step above

Update 2-9-2021: Audi has finally revealed the E-Tron GT and RS E-Tron GT. While we update this review with all the finer details, check out the important information and new images below!

Announced at Audi’s Annual Press Conference in Ingolstadt earlier this year, the Audi E-Tron GT is a new all-electric four-door coupé destined to hit the market in 2020. Offered as part of the Audi electric onslaught in which the Ingolstadt-based company will reveal 20 new electric models by 2025, the Audi E-Tron GT will sit at the top of the Audi Sport division, and will be responsible for constructing an all-new character trait for Audi’s line of Sport vehicles. With models such as the Audi A5 Sportback and Audi A7, the company obviously has some proper knowledge of the four-door coupé design. The E-Tron GT will act as a flagship for this intriguing car segment.

Given the E-Tron GT will take technology, design features, cabin specs, and possibly drivetrain hardware from other E-Tron vehicles, we already know a thing or two about the new car. Marketed to fight against the likes of the Tesla Model S and similar entries from other manufacturers, the Audi E-Tron GT could be even more impressive than the recently introduced E-Tron Quattro SUV.

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

2021 Mercedes-Benz EQA

The German automaker’s entry-level electric vehicle comes with a single-motor setup and a range of around 300 miles

After launching the rather expensive EQC, Mercedes has now come up with a slightly more affordable EV that could be a game-changer for the brand. Called the EQA, it is essentially a GLA that comes with some cosmetic changes and of course, a heart transplant. Interestingly, Mercedes has used a different approach for this car.

The EQA isn’t a wild-looking electric vehicle with radical styling cues and neither is it a rocket off the line, which seems to be the norm in the segment. Not everyone likes to take off the moment you press the A-pedal, after all. So, if the quick, push-you-back-in-the-seat cars are not your thing, here’s a refreshing electric vehicle that will make you smile and let you drive it calmly.

2020 Citroen Ami

2020 Citroen Ami

The Citroen Ami returns after 42 years as an all-electric quadricycle, and it’s kinda cute

The 2020 Citroen Ami is an all-electric vehicle based on the Ami One concept that the French company unveiled in 2019. Only 95 inches long and 55 inches wide, the Ami is in fact an elecric quadricycle rather than a full-blown car and it can be driven without a driver’s license.

This makes it accessible to people as young as 16 in most European countries (and 14 in France). Developed as a solution for city commuting over relatively short distances, the Ami is named after the original Citroen Ami, an economy car that the French firm produced from 1961 to 1978. What’s it all about and should you buy one? Find out in our review below.

2021 Cupra el-Born

Cupra’s first EV is essentially a VW ID.3 with a different shirt

The SEAT brand we know now is very different from the SEAT we knew a decade ago. The wind of transformation has been blowing over the Volkswagen Group-owned carmaker lately and SEAT has been enjoying a new life thanks to a revised lineup brimming with good-looking cars.

In the process, the Cupra nameplate - used to designate the sportiest models of the SEAT bunch - evolved into a standalone brand and without wasting any time, it has come up with an electric car, albeit with a little help from the VW ID.3. Let’s check out the Cupra el-Born EV.

2021 NIO ET7 EV

2021 NIO ET7 EV

This Tesla Model S-rivalling sedan looks stunning, is feature-rich, and offers 621 miles of range!

In the first quarter of 2020, Chinese EV automaker Nio had almost gotten knocked out of the auto scene. But, thanks to an investment of $1 billion from the local government, Nio managed to get a second lease on life. It revealed the updated version of its electric, the ES8, and there’s no looking back ever since. Nio is growing leaps and bounds and the launch of its latest EV is a testimony to that.

The new electric sedan is called ET7. It will be offered with three different battery sizes, with the biggest of them all claiming to deliver 620 miles on a single charge! With pretty decent performance figures and tech features, can the ET7 take on the Tesla Model S successfully?
