2015 Lotus Elise

By luanpa in | October 6, 2010 | (2) Comments

This is the all-new Lotus Elise , the company’s concept portrayal of the future 2015 production model, a car the company describes as a “grown-up” Elise.

The most dramatic feature is a longitudinal spar floating over the center console, which carries the gearchange, ventilation outlets and minor switchgear including ESP settings.The interior is a vastly more sophisticated design than the current car provides, but it retains the same spare quality.Carbon fiber is used extensively throughout the cabin.

Judging from Lotus’ specifications, the new Elise will weigh in at around 2,400 pounds, 400 pounds heavier than the current model.

The new Lotus Elise, expected to go on sale in 2015, will be powered by a 2.0-litre four-cylinder with 235kW and 330Nm of torque.The Elise will do the dash from 0-100km/h in just 4.3 seconds.The engine will delivers its power via a six-speed manual gearbox, while a dual-clutch transmission is an option, so is Lotus’ mild-hybrid start-stop technology.

The price of this new 320-hp Elise is projected at $55,000 — around $15,800 more than today’s entry-level Elise — although less expensive versions are expected.
