Lotus Confirms Type 130 All-Electric Hypercar to be Unveiled July 16

Lotus has confirmed that Type 130, the brand’s first all-new model in more than a decade, will be revealed to the world’s media at an exclusive event in Central London on July, 16th.

Following first confirmation of the project in April at the Shanghai International Auto Show, several hundred potential owners have come forward to express their interest in the new car.  Today, the company announces that a maximum of just 130 examples will be available to own – representing the number of Lotus ‘Types’ introduced during the brand’s 71-year history.

Lotus also confirms today that Type 130 will be built at Hethel in Norfolk, the brand’s headquarters since 1966.
