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...

    • @Eirik Olsen because its obvious a scam or some fishy link. If you look close the s in http is missing. The s stands for secure 😊

  • When you hear an electric car has 2000hp it's like "oh" because it's well known electric motors develop more torque & power, but a petrol engine you genuinely get more interested.
