An artist’s impression on what the new feature will look like. Lotus has announced a dedicated and specialist Advanced Technology Center, which will also be home to a new headquarters for the company’s engineering consultancy. Located on the Wellesbourne campus of the University of Warwick, the new facility is set up at the University of Warwick with WMG. The facility includes offices, workshops and laboratory space with ample opportunity for expansion.

Initially, 130 engineers will complement the 500-strong engineering team at Lotus Cars’ home in Hettel, Northfolk. Matt Windle, Executive Director, Engineering, Lotus Cars, said, “This is a big step forward for Lotus and our engineering consultancy. New spaces, facilities and job opportunities will be in great demand in Wellesbourne as we rapidly build our portfolio of external projects. Our team and specialist skills have grown significantly over the past two years as new incentives have been added to the business with new shareholders and management. The all-electric Eviza Hypercar is the first new Lotus Cars to deliver to us, with a significant focus in Wellnessburn as we complete the project and advance its technologies for our future programs. ”

Only 130 units of the Eviza Hypercar will be built and order books for the first year are already filled.

Even Lotus Cars CEO Phil Popham said the company’s engineering and R&D strategy around advanced propulsion systems is a lock-in-step with the government’s vision for a low-carbon automotive future and broader global ambitions. Lotus’s new Advanced Technology Center will secure more than 100 high-skilled jobs in Warwickshire and advance the low-carbon, electric technologies of the future.”
