Lotus Waves Farewell To Gasoline Engines With The New Emira

Lotus has been on the road to becoming fully electric, with the mysterious Lotus Type 131 project hinting at the company’s future endeavors. The recent announcement during the Driving Tomorrow global digital conference shed light on Lotus’s plans. Type 131, now known as Emira, marks Lotus’s final sports car powered by a traditional gasoline engine.

Lotus cleverly teased the name Emira on their social media channels before the official reveal. They encoded the name in Morse Code, integrating it into a road’s central line as a pattern of dots and dashes. The unveiling was timed to coincide with the birthday of Samuel Morse, the inventor of Morse Code.

While the details about Emira remain sparse, Lotus disclosed that it will be their last internal combustion model. The car draws design inspiration from the Evija hypercar and will feature a new powertrain partnership focused on efficiency, cutting-edge technology, and the distinct Lotus driving experience.

Matt Windle, Lotus’s new managing director, described Emira as “the most accomplished Lotus for generations.” The sports car is designed with a perfect blend of style, power, and functionality, taking cues from the design of the Evija all-electric hypercar.

With only a few teaser images released, the full unveiling of Emira is scheduled for July 6. Subsequently, Emira will be publicly showcased at the Goodwood Festival of Speed from July 8-11.
