    James May loves looking into the future of the automotive landscape, and he did just that through a day with the stunning Lotus Evija hypercar.
    2000hp, £2 million and all the EV geekery you could possibly hope for. Take it away, Mr May...

I am always amused when they high tech solutions just for the sake of using hightech solutions. A regular car door would work better than any electric car door ever could.

No reason to style an electric "hypercar" so close to a gasoline powered car. Sucker car! The styling is as though you took the word voluptuous and turned it into Fatty, as in Fat Oprah Fatty. Fire those designers, maker them work fish and chips jobs the rest of their wretched lives.

If you never curse but wish to..., that's the the thing to buy. After driving this car a couple of days, the mission will be accomplished. The cars door will make sure of that. The acceleration stats were misread a bit - The car reaches 60 mph not in under 3 seconds but in 3 minutes

I imagine the car will run for about 15 minutes before needing a recharge. It might be able to go at 180 mph but I doubt it will be able to travel 180 miles in an hour. Might need a new set of terms for supercars like this. Instead of 290km/h we might need to say top speed=80 meters/s or 87 yards per second....... just a thought!!

Well Lotus must have found a motor manufacturer, that has managed to get an incredibly highest power density, into a 500hp motor. Can't see how they've squeezed that size motor at each wheel. Is this car actually in production, as it seems like a bit of a pipe dream car.
