Emira testing

Recommended Posts

While we are all (almost all) looking positively at the Lotus Emira, and marvel at the package and included gadgets, I ask myself when was the car properly road tested. Not a modified Evora chassis on the new platform, but proper  debugging of the car and it ergonomics.

Pre-Production models were used for long distance travel, cold and warm weather running, cooling, wind noise with window up and down, and many more.  I am not talking of Nurburg fast laps, just miles of testing.

With the performance of CAD systems, and simulations in CFD and FEA, this may be a thing of the past.
If anybody in the automotive businees can shed some info, it would be appreciated.

This does account for the long time between now and the first volume cars going to the first customers. With the Evija I assume similar things are going on, as people who ordered it at it launch will not be getting theirs for some time yet. Lotus must be spending a fortune on both developments, I hope the Emira sells well when the full details are released, but there must be concerns for dealers as to what they will actually be able to deliver etc for the second half of this year and the first part of next. Even hoping covid does not have too much more impact.
