  1. So I guess it will only have one or maybe two motors of the Evija instead of all four lol. Just kidding Lynk and Co (the Zero is rated at 530 bhp) and Polestar ( #2 has over 400bhp) already have access to engines able to produce mostly irrelevant amount of hp. Actually with electric power, I don't thing speaking in hp makes any sense... The smallest electric motor is able to produce senseless amount of hp these days. Lets not even talk about torque because it makes things even more irrelevant. However ease of use ( charging speed, range or autonomy, ability to handle cold weather, ea
  2. In my opinion, i do think that the Chinese article contains some misinformation regarding the architecture of the future vehicles to be manufactured at the new Wuhan factory. This misinformation is pretty classic when one has to inform a government body of things to be done in one future factory or place of business. It is not a straight out lie but you tend to inform them based on available information at the time, that in turns needs to be updated 3/6/9 months later. I do think that the architecture for the future EV of Geely group premium/luxury brands (Lynk & Co, Volvo, Polestar,
  3. Ok I found the source article for the dutch piece: And i used google translate (this thing has progressed by leaps and bounds when it comes to chinese to english translation this past few years, it's impressive) so the articles says that: The piece displays what looks like a leaked spec sheet with the numbers above. They are very lardy to me a 2.2 tons Lotus... hybrid or not is excessively heavy for a Lotus, it's a 100kg less than the benchmark Cayenne but still. I cross checked with Gasgoo China Automotive News which is the
  4. The skeleton is no more: It only took nearly 8 years 3 different CEOs (DB, JMG, PP) and a new ownership...
  5. What the what ?! The SEA platform is the group newest electrified platform, it is going to underpin most thing EV Geely is going to produce. That does include Lotus upcoming SUV whose "clone" - dare I say - has been unveiled already: Lynk and Co Zero concept : SEA is super scaleable, it is pretty much a skate with only one fixed point and all of Geely companies can play around it to make it fit their need as it is open source... Volvo can have McPherson struts while Lotus can go double wishbones... It promises more than adequate range( 400miles) and performance usin
  6. Musk's Distortion Field... The overall perceived quality of Tesla product is not the best, but they make for comfy rides, wow factor and it feels good being part of the people who are doing something to lower nefarious emissions... That's what i get from the all thing. Still when you sit inside and see the panels gaps...sigh!
  7. The Cayenne and Maccan have been carrying Porsche for years. And if the Cayenne was funded partially by VW at the beginning it now shares an undisclosed number of parts with hum : the Maccan of course but also Touareg, Q7, Bentayga and Urus... The Cayenne is a cash cow, the entire VW group has been enjoying it for years. In my mind if the SUV shares anything in the upcoming Volvo XC, Polestar 3 or 4, Lynk & Co Zero or Geely's own brand while still retaining visual Cues and the dynamic prowess. It is a win.As said, the factory should be nearing completion these days but despite China
  8. It is alive they are just running it in the background, and a lot of work is being undertaken away from Hethel... Lotus has a full contingent of engineers working from the new Greater Shanghai R&D and engineering centers and the new Geely-Lotus in Wuhan must not be too far from completion... Still I do think it is due for a 2022 release not a 2020. Also the specs in the article are vastly different from the ones initial hinted at by the previous management, then again the current leadership has played it pretty coy ever since Lotus will realistically share the platform with a n
  9. By the look of it the skeleton building outer shell was almost complete at the time of filming this piece and so is the new gallery, museum, cantina, offices next to Factory 1, and As planned the watch tower is gone as is the old motorsport building. However the new customer experience centre is nowhere to be seen, only a green mound with an excavator stands near where it should be... Interesting considering that building was supposed to be delivered this summer, and was the first to have its building permit granted. Other than that Gavan doing his thing and doing it well. Gosh t
  10. And yet it is funny how much Lotus does not get away with any of it... as opposed to all the brands named above. Yet I agree Lotus is in excellent company.
  11. WAE is not wholly owned by Williams family but by an equity firm, Williams only retained a minority share of the company. WAE is dealing with a bunch of OEMs including some of the most highest profile... That does not look good when Lotus has not yet managed to get the full allocation of cars sold and just announced further delay, which is fair in the view of Covid, but still, this is bad news, of the kind the prospective customers will steer clear of the brand and the media will cover at length.
  12. WTF happened? The program should be in very late stage of development right now. Why are they stirring shit now, they do not need bad press, a mutually agreeable parting of ways would have better than the shitshow that is about to take place in social media.
  13. Well just looked at the spec of the car on the website, the weight went up to 1750kg from a target of 1690kg but Popham now mentions way more power possibly exceeding 2000bhp so there's that.
  14. Uh how many drivers have had poor luck with their hybrid you think? And also how many of these drivers have busted their infotainment systems with greasy fingers... Not to put the blame on driver/owners but Volvo is still ranking very high in North America for reliability... I've been driving a previous gen V60 T5 for the past little while and it is definitely on my list of runabout for replacing the Saabaru, when the times comes. When it comes to the interior of the future car... it is poised to have a manual version, possibly another improved version of BG6 which is made by
